Set Your Goals

My dudes,

I am disappointed in the lack of stoke here on the buzz. All I see is namby pamby rafter frame size, cooler size, oar length, shuttle help, can't figure it out on my own questions. The whole state of CO is riper than your little sister's twat on prom night. Perhaps everyone is out lapping gore and vallecito at splashy levels, and I'm missing out.

Here are my 2014 kayaking goals. I'm aiming high, so that if I only put a few new notches in the belt, no big deal. Most of these are things I haven't done, but some are repeats. Add your own list.

Casey Tango's 2014 Mank wishlist:

Clarks fork box
Gore @ high
Big South from source
Baker's Box
Todo clear creak at peak (empire to golden)
Crested Butte quadruple crown in 1 day
Fish Creek
Ark valley triple crown (clear creek, lake crk, pine crk) in 1 day
Crystal drainage (punchbowls, NF, Gorge)
Kayaking at night. Two night runs last year wasn't enough.
Black Canyon

And check this video out. Major fucking stoke.

I want a use my unpin kit.
Do a live bait rescue.
Poach the Selway and run it out in 1 day.
Share a camp and drink PBR with someone who doesn't speak English!
Sell my rafts to support my kayak addiction.
Poop in a 4" tube with a river view to die for.
And just hang with friends that I haven't seen in a 100 years on the MFS.

Ya I'm stoked for this year for sure!!!

Does this mean it's ok to talk about Sweetgrass? I thought this was a big Montucky secret.

Any my only goal is to run some different stuff. Sick of the same old stuff. Except the Crystal. That shit is always sick.

I'll play along.

1) Run new sections of rivers. Regardless of class or character.
2) Play boat more than I did last year, to get more loosened up. And learn a new trick like a McNasty or Orbit or something cool and new school.
3) More night kayaking is always good. Especially full moon paddling.
4) Share my love of the sport with my daughter, and everyone else I come across on the river this summer.
5) Have a swim-less season.

It's getting exciting!

1) Be Safe
2) Have fun
3) Keep the black side down.
