Actually I thought I was pulling trash out of the river. The bag had been there a couple of days and I was tired of floating over it. It was a very dangerous extraction. I had to swim without floatation to the bottom of an eddy in the middle of a class 2 section. I would of happily returned it to the owners but it was $1,100 cash and there wasn't any contact information. Besides, I wanted to be the coolest kid in the bar. I felt like the money was my reward for picking up after others.

damn i wondered why this post kept getting bumped & growing in length, and now i've just wasted about an hr finding out. :-\

Alexela obviously didn't take notes on my "When to Swim" thread & how to extricate oneself from a shitstorm.

so this is what is was all about?????

get yer ass to the river, that's where the paddlers are!

Life is much better on the water, within a week i was paddling with about everyone that was either mentioned in that thread or inciting the online riot, and life was good again!

I just pulled someone's boat out the other day. I expected to witness a booty beer, i got a "thank you." i've been wronged!

btw Riparian, i just about shot snot onto my luminescent rectangle from your response!
