Niagara River Gorge Footage - Then and Now

Seeing EJ's video teaser,

reminded me that we had some old recorded footage from the news stations around Niagara when we filmed the American Sportsman piece. We now have it posted here for all you Niagara and long-boat enthusiasts.

My wife and I were there last weekend for our anniversary. We paid for an elevator ride down to a boardwalk where you can see Himalayas rapid and Helter Skelter.

The water was so ominous it made my sac raisin and my back door pucker up tighter than a Focus on the Family seminar.

Of course being a faithful Buzzer, I knew that E.J. et. al. had run it just weeks before.

It makes me wonder what the hell all those yappers were thinking when some of the world's greatest kayakers floated by.

I would have been so excited, I probably would have shat a litter of kittens.

I can't wait to see the video in its entirety.

I just stumbled across that old sportsman video last night, so I thought I'd bump this post up. Pretty awesome, I need to get one of those old LA Rams football helmets.
