Floating volunteer cops on the animas

The Durango Herald 07/21/2011 | Patrolling the Animas

Just when we thought we had removed all the pieces of shit from the river...the pictures in this article are priceless....from the color of duder's legs he 's not doing that much floating....who else feels the urge to fuck with these assholes who only now are just being taught ferry angles? I bet they don't hit the water until most of us have deemed it too low for river....are they gonna try to fuck with anyone with a cozy? This seems destined to fail from the start....or one of these mo fos is gonna drown....funny shit

how many times am I going to have to put my beer down to rescue these fools?

For those that are not from the area, the mounties are volunteer law enforcement assistants- kinda like the old guys that drive around in jeeps with search and rescue plates...When you get too old, too fat or you've always been too damn incompetent to be a soul adventurer, you can always dawn the utility belt, the green shirt and go policin' The local mountme groups are in the middle of an internal split....the new group has decided to add river patrol as part of their services.....priceless!

...and one more thought....

Can you imagine these gapers at this year's river parade. First, the cops always get hot and bothered in the paper pre-parade warning all participants about drinking...then they watch as hundreds of us celebrate the rio...if your cool-they're cool....

BUT- can you imagine the new recruits trying to police the parade in their gig bobs while it's flowing over 4000....I wonder why the outfitters think it's a good idea? I know your on the Buzz- let's hear the reason M to W, or Mountain Waters....

Someone tell him to watch that downstream oar... popped an oar by the island? Really? No wonder they're staying above 9th st. At least the "usual" places below that will still be good to go.

The river is the last place to make enemies because when shit hits the fan you need all the river friends you can muster up. These Mounties will learn this in a hurry when they fine out how unforgiving the rivers really are. Hopefully they will become part of the river community and have a positive effect. The first time a boater pulls their ass out of the drink they may think twice about what their real objectives are instead of just hassling us.
