Headtrip I wouldn't take this all too seriously, remember most of this is just people distracting themselves from work. Throw in the inevitable misunderstanding (it really is impossible to infer meaning and easy to misread it) in e-chat, and things go downhill fast. Look what joy a simple statement brings me, that they should never leave behind a real chair and I shared my recent experience when I realized how important that one comfort is (if it's possible to bring it on CV, then I see no reason NOT to bring on on low water MF). Some can't help themselves, the worst comes out. It happens to most people, or at least it can seem that way to others even when not intentioned. Then when we meet in person we do just what you say, sit around the fire and BS. And then others just like to bring some people down when they are having fun and can't handle a spade being called a spade or people talking shit. Heck, some of my best boating friends row Aire's and look at what a hard time I give Wave Destroyers as second to Legends. Take what you like here, and ignore the rest. Or if you're in the mood flame back!
And funrivers, the Buzz is inherently sophomoric. Jaded? No way, that flip was a great lesson that helped me progress in my Class V endeavors. Each one is a learning experience, and a successful self recovery is an awesome thing.
