Todd- i dont accept your apology at all, nor was my "tempert tantrum out of line"....you personally ripped on myself and my abilities with your statement about "being a safety issue". Thats a direct insult to me, and i dont take that kindly. and for your information, i dont just look at a map and some photos. if you had actually read my posts, you would find out i take EVERYTHING into consideration when talking about a new run. Length, Gradient, Local geology, local flora, other runs in the area, drainage basin size, etc. I dont just look at a map and say "this looks good". its an exhaustive process that i go through. i say "POTENTIAL" because that means theres POSSIBLY something there, and maybe there isnt. and if you know something isnt, how about instead of being a dick and saying "you think all these runs are awesome, and they aint".....drop a line and say "yo, such and such doesnt go". im not young and in need or learning; i have full confidence in my method. You are the one in need of something, and thats a damn ego check. dont even call me grasshopper or tell me i need to learn shit again. thats whack shit right there. as for other runs in other states, why should we settle for what we have in CO? theres plenty of sick lines left in this state that are un-run, and im sorry if you dont think so. i dont want to leave my beautiful state, and if dont have to, then im not going to. some of us arent spoiled enough to get to go scout shit by helicopter or find new runs in the british columbia wilderness. thats why i stay here.
so basically, you go do your thing, and ill do mine- but dont even f'ing rip on myself or my skills again, because that shit is not cool. i used to have a lot of respect for you. the 1st d on tatlow was sick. but after this, im now going to view you as egotistical and arrogant. a simple "hey man, i looked at wolf creek, it probably wouldnt ever go" would work, not the post you left. You may think otherwise, but you totally have that attitude of an "extreme" boater. just because you are a V+ boater and im a III boater doesnt mean i dont know whats going on, and when you tell me what you told me, sorry "bro", you did disrespect me, and thats what pisses me off the most.
this isnt directed at anyone except ToddG, so please, nobody else get involved. Yes, ToddG has mad talent, and yes, he will run stuff that i probably wont, but he still insulted me personally and continues to do so, and even if he was steve fuckin fisher id still react the same way. so please, stop assuming i dont know shit, and take your accusations and insults someplace else.
