So, let's see. Cause you have some whitewater experience, are CERTIFIED by God, and actually own a PFD, that means all the civil servants ought fall down at your feet and thank you for coming out to distract them from whatever they are doing..........seems to me, the public servant who told you if you are indeed SWR certified, then you ought know enough to stay away hit it right on the head. You wanna help? Stay out of the way, or contact the front office people and see can they use a self important gas bag.
And the CDOT guy promising to be the first out of town when the siren sounded?? You think his job description includes risking his life to stick around waiting for people to get their head out of their ass and move? You think because he's a public servant he should automatically be the first to die while the rest of you live?? Now, he was a cop or fireman we'd be having a different discussion I'm sure, but the guy is CDOT.
And then you take the opportunity to rant about development and dams and water quality, cause you know, God unloaded a shitload of Karma on those greedy bastards and we ought take the opportunity to acknowledge that...............
and a big middle finger to those who say it's illegal/wrong/selfish to Kayak? I'm sure you mean Kayak while half of the front range is flooding and people are loosing homes and maybe their lives. You know, cause fuck yall, I'm a by GOD KAYAKER, and I bow to no authority, not even the river GODS, and when we got a 500 year flood opportunity, we got some whitewater to tame, and yall can just get the F&*%K out of my way!
You go Opie! You are a fine representative of the Kayaking community.
