Hey Caspian, I burnt out a too before I left Colorado. Running the same old rivers, broken nose, way too many competitions, broken back, dating one too many kayakers, bumm shoulder, who knows why? But physically and mentally I needed a break. Since moving, the new rivers and laid back vibe have restored my interest and paddling is more fun again. Even though I've stepped it down. But now I often am reminded of my early days in a dancer with a bunch of old guys in big boats and ratty gear with nothing to prove.
Seems like for a lot of kayakers, kayaking is their whole identity. You hear it all the time- bitching about the non-boater girlfriend asking for some time, or that all the good times are over once kids come along. Pretty limited world view.
It was said well above - just go do other stuff, whatever strikes your fancy, without regret. Or pack up the hiking boots/climbing shoes, mtn bike, and boat and come visit your buds in Idaho to check out some new terrain. We'd love to have ya!
