Why do they sell so many button-fly jeans in Texas? Because the sheep can hear the zippers a mile away.

How does a mother from Texas know when her daughter is on her period?

Her son's dick tastes different.

I think this thread has been taken over!

Why don't they teach Drivers Ed and Sex Ed on the same day in Texas?

It's too hard on the mule.

I hear Vallecito is running. That would be a good place to start.

wow, particularly harsh group this time. they can be hard on texans, especially the californians that moved to the front range a couple years ago and now call themselves locals. or worse yet, the boulder trustafarians. southern colorado folks tend to be more respectful since they know who floats the economy

the frio is great fun, but realize most of the folks here are more hardcore whitewater types

a few suggestions to take it to the next level if you are interested. read William Nealy's book "Kayak" for a start. see if you can meet somebody you can run the Guadalupe with down in New Braunsfels - a great river for the next step in class 2 water. size up who you paddle with to see if they are safe & trustworthy - someone you can count on for help if you need it

Looks like you may be in a sit-on-top (sorry if i am wrong here). to get on more serious water, class III, you will need an inflatable kayak or a hardboat with skirt. there may be a club in austin that you can hook up with to get a taste of that and see if you want to keep going. even better, if you have the funds, book a week long class at Nantaha kayak school - then you can get some professional instruction and really see if this is for you.

have fun & be safe

As I see it you have two problems.
First, you're a Texan.
Second, you're a yakker.

I honestly don't see a way to wipe the smudge of Texas from your essence, but you may consider dumping the Kayak and getting a real boat.

Or, making sure you don't carry the Kayak attitude around; you know, entitled to drink all the beer they didn't carry, avoid chores at all costs, and yap endlessly about those garbage scows that haul their shit around while blowing their horn about just how great their skills are.

But, as all bouncy boaters know;

We take deeper strokes
Leave bigger wet spots

Welcome though.
