Todd G wins vacation to hell

Their movie was well done but the party was probably the worst ever. Finally the guy who must spend every waking hour looking at Mountainbuzz will realize just how overrated slides are. Congrats

Can you say, "poor sport." Wouldn't a congratulations have been good enough?

I don't know Todd or Shane very well but from what I do know they will be awesome candidates for the vaca from hell.

If I had been tooled as bad as you were over your ridiculous comment concerning slides I certainly wouldn't continue to bring it up.

Congratulations Seattle crew and may your trip be more heaven than hell.

Oh yeah, and thanks to John and Kara Weld and all the crew at Immersion Research for bringing such a cool concept to life and supporting grassroots kayaking.

BTW - If you're interested in more information about the "Vacation from Hell" grant or the team that won it you can find them at

Since I'm sitting in Asheville right now I guess I'll go back to crossing my fingers that the hydrogods over at Tuxedo will turn the switch on the Narrows tomorrow morning or it will continue to rain so that maybe I can go slide down one of those ridiculously lame slides that haunt this region.

First off... that vid clip is one of the most mutated and totally hilarious things I have ever seen...

But getting to the topic at hand. Todd, first off you are a great guy that is super accomplished and I wish you the best. That whole group is a great selection and I know you are going to do great. From what I just heard from my buddy who has been in the area many times, there is a big danger of falling rock due to the geology. One of the main dangers is sleeping on the banks at night, as rocks are constantly breaking off and rolling down. Pick your camp spots w/ that in mind...

Just be sure to stay safe.

That video is some bizarre shit...

ToddG - Congrats! I remember watching you, Aaron and Jeremy run the bottom drops on 11 mile canyon and at that time I wished I'd gotten into kayaking sooner in my life. That was years ago and you've been crankin' ever since. This honor is much deserved, I'm sure. Thanks for letting some of us desk junkies live vicariously through you.
