So... I what offends me about the joke is that it seemed apparent that some people posting were not joking. What is so more valid about what kinda pogies should i buy than a question about ice, groovers, ect. I am not saying that we whouldnt have more than one forum, im saying that this thread turned into the ski/snowboard conversation that I believe is useless! I think that we all enjoy the rivers/mountains/etc. and we have something to learn and enjoy from other sports and the people who do them. As a kayaker i emmensly appritiate the rafters who keep there coolers cold for my food and as a rafter I love having kayakers as saftey boats. I think that negativity and discounting ones ideas/lifestyle/sport is just conterproductive. Furthermore In agree that some threads are a bit rediculous and that the rivers are crowded. I learned the trial and error way...some dont. Dont be the crusty old-schooler that you cant top because they have been there and done that (and in a Dancer at that). New boaters just make our sports more valid and create cool jobs (gear/guiding/research/instruction) for those of us who have been around. Cheers and sorry for the harsh words

Well, from a thread-ending e-boater's point of view(who cannot kayak again until his A) back is fully healed and B) can fit in his boat again from too much off-season couch surfing, who decided to troll a last minute post on this topic):
I disagree.... but posts get buried pretty fast; can we make the default list, on the main page, longer? So we don't miss valuable information on cooler sizes, bent shaft paddles, and turkey legs?

Does the river drain to the Pacific Ocean or the Atlantic?

It drains to my house in Cali. Piss all you want, I drink bottled wter. BTW, I've pissed more than a few hundred gallons of good micro brew directly into the rivers and creeks while living in Colorado for 3 decades. Now I can't even piss off my deck until after dark, even then the freaking lighting is sketchy bright. Trying not to piss on a bundled up asian wailker in the 80 degree night weather...

What I would give to piss on an a bundled up asian. I guess the best I can do is piss in the water that Pepsi will run through their reverse osmosis system and then sell to you for 10 times the cost of gasoline while I drink from the creek that was snowmelt yesterday. Thanks for putting it all in perspective.
