ISSUES WITH 4CRS
So there I was, in the Vallecito parking lot. Due to the recent rain the ground was muddy, so I carefully placed my kayak on the best gravel spot I could find. It was a nice day out so I expected other boaters to be around. What I did not expect was the blatant disrespect shown by one "Tony M" as he MOVED MY KAYAK aside to unload his boat. Now I assume he was just flexing his arm for the tourists in the parking lot, but that does not make this intentional act any less hurtful.
Had this incident ended there, I would not be writing this. Not more that a half hour later (I am a hiking stud), I was cruising down the creek above a certain rapid called Fuzzy Bunny. I am just a recreational paddler, so I don't really like catching eddies. Lo and behold, who pulls out in front of me but the same "Tony M." As I sat there aghast, he then proceeded to clap his hands while running the waterfall, as if to rub it in my face (see photo).
Fortunately, after a good cry, I was able to channel my inner strength gained from years as a professional raft guide, and slicked off that boof followed by several more. Upon returning to town, I headed straight to 4CRS to complain. Unfortunately, upon explaining what had occurred, the staff was completely unhelpful. They responded "he's our boss, what do you want us to do?" and "Dude, relax, he only has one hand."
Clearly, the next step is to alert the authorities: the Sheriff, the Forest Service, maybe a letter to my Congressman. Please give me come guidance on my next steps. Thank you for your support during this difficult time.
