Q: how deep is the water here?
A: it goes all the way to the bottom.
one day i was guiding on a commercial trip. one of my friends, a local video boater, came paddling his kayak up behind my raft. he said hello and i asked him "are you playing or are you working?" i did not think it was that strange of a question. however, my crew of tourons thought that it was very strange that you couldn't tell by looking whether someone was playing or working. some of our questions are as funny to them as theirs are to us.
correct me if i am wrong,i haven't actually been there, but someone told me that the reason that some people think that they are going to take out where they put in is because of the "loop" section of the lower yough in pennsylvania. people do self guided rafts on a short section of river that literally loops around and comes back very near the put in.
