These guys are all great boaters that made a mistake and then worked it out. They would probably all be willing to show you lines on new runs or save your ass on the river sometime...or not.
On a more positive note Gilman is running Toxic Adrenaline and is super fun. It will probably tank again with this next front coming in. Hippie D and I are meeting at the takeout at 5:30 if anyone wants to go.
I let the first few go, thinking... " nah, nobody is this stupid...."
here we go, first off, none of these clowns could pull me from the river. you think flatwater is hard, imagine a 300lb person loading a rope in a 4/5 setting. All five are going to let go. no doubt.
2. why would i want to learn lines from people who portage flatwater. If you can not stay in the river for a 1/4 mile of flat water, why would i put my faith in you to be SMART and SAFE in the shit. the motor skills are there, but the common sense is not.
3. I am giving them shit, no one else seems to be, they deserve it, they ALL KNEW IT WAS TRESPASSING.
WHY, WHY, cause controversy on the ONLY early and late season run WE have, that is that good.
The fact that they got caught and were almost procecuted was the ONLY reason they came forward, they and others have been warned many times before. NOW it is serious.
I dont want to rag on about it.
The fact that people know better and still do dumb shit blows my mind. sorry you dont feel the same way, you must work in the E.R
And to to the O.P. and crew, you knew better, that is all.
