Granted, you'd have to sign off the web, get dressed, and speak face to face with those you've openly accused of crimes - but I'm sure they wouldn't hold it against you.
Props to all involved in the tireless effort to bring Kimberly back to her loved ones and making sure the river wasn't altered.
You're insulting me because I'm discussing this on Mountainbuzz? You're discussing this in the same "mamby pamby land" you fucking retard. Are you that stupid to insult someone for participating in a discussion that you're also participating in? Jesus.
And the river was altered. It was done without the input of those who opposed changing the river. It was done by people who didn't have the authority to change the rapid. It was done without considering the natural environment, the value of risk in outdoor sports, or the law.
I'm sorry that so many of you disagree with me, you have that right. I didn't insult anyone here, and am not sure what part of my opinion on river management policy makes me so soulless . I never intended to insult the memory of a fallen comrade, and don't think I did anything to do that.
I just think that changing a rapid is a big fucking deal and should be done legitimately.
This will be my last post on this thread, as I have no intention of being offensive to the boating community. Sorry for disagreeing.
