I stand by "it is just Boulder Creek", and it is atypical for people to tube the section where the tuber died and I am not insensitive to that, as that is quite different from what the girl was describing. Moreover, the kayaker that died on the IIish has nothing to do with this, strainers would be a different discussion. Also, "strong current" is up for debate.
I agree it is a risk, just not one worth writing the editor and author over, especially when it was a quote. That is my point. You guys are just over-reacting to silly stuff, it is Boulder "play park" creek tubing. If you jump over to the other thread about tubers you won't see me argue against the point that tubers should wear pfds and helmets. Have fun educating the masses.
