Great graphic, Blast! That's a hoot!
Welcome to the 'Buzz. Generally in this forum folks will post a question, make an observation, tell something about things that have happened recently, relate a story, give a trip report or something like that. There's a lot of traffic on this site and many folks go for months without posting anything. Also, don't let the flamers bother you - they're only flaming themselves in my opinion.
A friend of mine was in Ireland a not long ago for the World Surf Kayak Championships and said that some of the creeks rock. Perhaps you've got some photos of rivers flowing through beautiful, lush, green countryside to post? Are there things you're aware of that are radically different over there than from here? Are you in the US right now and available to go boating with members of the 'Buzz community? If you want to get a dialog going don't be shy, folks will respond (as you can see if you check out the off-topic political thread!).
Oh, yeah, things drop off considerably on this site on the weekend.
If you're in Colorado, let folks know and I bet you'll get invited along on a river trip - shucks, you already have!
