Sorry for your loss.

I will probably never boat gore because of my personal loss there. Hard enough for me losing a friend that I was not with.

The spirit of adventurous can carry a high price.
Thank you for the reminder of what that price can be.
Many of us have lost friends and family to nature's forces, YOU ARE NOT ALONE now.

Its called a Lurk. Its what the old Norwegians used before we cut em up into two pieces

I moved away from Gunny last fall and injured my back this winter so I have not been on top of the boating scene this season. I have been avoiding Mt. Buzz since I really can't get psyched up since I am healing my back. I read your post and my heart sank...... I first thought of all your smiles at the play park and you guys showing up for super late Taylor runs hitching a shuttle from us or whoever was driving along the canyon. I smile because you guys were passionate and lived and loved! Nothing but time can alleviate the pain at this point and I am sending positive thoughts your way! Keep your chin up and eyes open looking for all that is good in the middle of all this pain.......

I'm so sorry. I had a great day with him on the USB (Normany Canyon)this year. Great guy, great paddler. He gave me some fantastic tips on my 1996 Tacoma.

Everybody watch out for each other out there.

I have lost too many friends and family that have been close to me by whitewater, car accidents, suicide, and cancer. Nothing I say can help except to stay strong and think of the things about him that made you smile the most. It seems to help me... My thoughts and prayers are with you.
