Back to the gym I go...
Keep training, you'll be there one day. I hope you're having fun with that Mini Me. I'm thinking about getting a Puma to row this summer.

By the way, using a motor is far from Leave No Trace, which is what I strive for while I'm on the river. We all make impact, we all burn gas with cars, etc. but the Grand Canyon is downstream and I WILL NOT put gasoline into the Colorado River. Those that do it for convenience and leisure are weak. It would be one thing if the lake was full, but there is current all the way. There are also several good camp sites. Maybe the trip will take six days instead of five and people won't make it back to work on time, OH NO! If you're using a motor of the Colorado River so you can make it to work on time you're not a boater anyway!

I stand by my comment. Using motors in Cat is weak.

Yeah it is totally going to be just like that in July.... Randall how do I get to be as bad ass as you? From my understanding your pre-rowing out of Cat workout consists on bluegrass fiddling and biking to the bars. You may be a purist my friend but I am a realist.... Literally one of the worst nights of my whole life and I was lit up.

Why does everyone think it's about muscle? Sure, I have huge muscles and look amazing in a bathing suit, but that's not what this is about. It's about motors and how nasty they are.

Jen, you are the most real realist I know. I hope your nightmares about upper Glen Canyon go away soon. You are a bad ass by the way. If I were casting a sequel to the Walker Texas Ranger series I wouldn't hire you to replace Chuck Norris, but only because you're the obvious choice. I hope we get to float some this summer.

As for the rest of you motor boatin' sons o' bitches, I'm leaving next week to row an 18 foot boat from Lee's Ferry to Pearce. I'd ask you to come along, but IT'S NON-MOTOR SEASON!
