Darwin's gonna catch up with you sooner or later.
I live in the Springs and think this every time it rains hard--there's some good canals/creeks that would be fun as hell. And the creeks I'm considering, but canals--no fricking way. If you go over, you swim....there is no "roll" in 2' of water without removing your cranium....so you lose your boat and paddle, and if you're lucky, get out. If I'm wrong here, let me know because it looks like a hell of a ride, especially the "single track" stuff.
So about when did you start saying, "I'm going too fast...I'm going too fast."???
