ProZoned is 16 years old - he doesn't know anything outside of his XBox. It's not in his allowance budget.

I have just been through a divorce, mostly over money. On top of that, I have recently lost my job. I still maintain an AW membership. This is an organization that is devoted to nothing but helping maintain recreational paddling access and water ecology. They have spent far more than they have earned over the past several years in order to help us all. If you paddle the Numbers of the Arkansas, the Ocoee in Tennessee, the Gauley, the Colorado through the Grand Canyon, or any of several hundreds of runs around the world you owe AW, its members and staff for spending their lives allowing it. How many organizations do you know that are responsible for shutting down as many dams? The least that you can do is become a member and do a fraction of your part.

I know one thing for sure, AW is there to help its members with whitewater related issues. I found myself in jail after I became a bit disgruntled by the lack of urgency shown by my local search and rescue and who was there for me, AW! I let my membership slide when I had my son but this thread has rectified that stupid decision. Even though I let it slide, I have always been an extremely vocal supporter of AW. Hey and I know my boys are gonna give me sh!t about letting my membership slide so I figured I ought to just post my dirty laundry outright. O.k. I am embarassed!
