well - i don't mean to vibe for the sake of vibing, but just like when someone cuts you off on the highway, sometimes people should be let others know if they're behavior boarders on reckless and they may be oblivious. thats great for them if they can swim strong. they'll need it! - i don't mean to judge as i'm way far away from runnig rigor, and am often humbled by much easier water.
my ego gets continually bashed, but as humble as i could be, like David Carradine as Kwai Chang Caine from the old 80's TV show kung fu, i still think it's crazy to swim thru these rapids, and as strong as they could be - it seems to be a plan bound for disaster. i hope they prove me wrong, and we can all get rid of these expensive plastic boats, grab some budwisers, and jump in with swimsuits and old nikes on.
its kind of like when i'm in eldo, and see some rock master soloing a difficult route. it's cool in many ways, but i hope to never seem them eat shit, and ruin this wonderful place with memories of broken bones and blood. the real difference is these soloists are true badasses, and are obviously well in control of the situation. Now dudes in a tube, getting thrashed in big holes . . . .not so sure about how much control that portrays. doesn't quite exude confidence from the posts i've been wasting my time reading.
i guess as long as they are having fun, and i don't have to see a thrashing cause they are bomb swimmers, and their behavior doesn't stir up trouble for the rest of us, what the F should i care?
