........Schutzie looks on with glee;
For once he's not the target of the blog detectives!!
He does note that the company he ran with MANY years ago was among the first to actively recruit women as guides.
As a general rule, they were every bit as tough and randy as the hairy smelly men guides.
And he recalls watching Georgie White humble the (male) Forest Service hacks over their plan to "control" the lost burro of the canyon and in the same weekend, embarrass a big husky sheriffs deputy bent on quelling an overzealous guide gathering in a hotel meeting room. And she did this while her (male) counterparts watched from under the conference table, where they found themselves after trying to keep up drink for drink with the old girl.
He does note also that while male Kayakers will shamelessly take the last beer and bitch that it ain't cold enough, female Kayakers will at least not bitch about the temperature.
