Everyone who is judging Chaos also clicked on this thread. Human nature, we're all gapers.
Soylent - "Death On The Ark?" I can't count the number of friends yesterday out yesterday on Pine Creek to Numbers, and I'm not in the minority here.
It's a gross feeling reading a post like this in the past and then going upstairs to check my cell phone and seeing 25 voicemails that built up while I was blissfully sleeping in my bed. It's happened before.
Ironically I stoked some friends from grad school on rafting and kayaking, and convinced them to hire a trip on the Numbers yesterday. Thankfully, they're fine, but when I see a post like this, you're damn right that I'm going to read it.
These posts generate a huge number of hits. There are definitely a fair share of gapers, but I think that many buzzards are trying to find out if they knew the person and if not, a) learn from what happened, and b) get condolences and support out as fast as possible.
So. . . what the heck happened?
