"What happens when they go upside down" (talking about kayakers) "they die". Shocked look of horror.

I get this from my girlfriend(s)

Okay, if we're running this rapid solo in order for everyone else to see the line and how pushy it is. What do we do if something happens to us?

I had one of my friends rowing a flat water stretch on the Upper C. We reached a braided section and with urgency I said "Don't go left that way goes back to Denver" To which, with wide eyed amazement, he said. "What? Really!"

I once had a guest ask me how cold the water is? I told him that there is a thermometer at the bow of the boat in the water, and to check it out and see. Then when he bent over the bow, I threw him in and asked "how cold is it?"

I got asked this when guiding on the Ark years back: "are all them shiny specks in the water gold?" Yup, sure are. I'm just rowing your fat ass down the river for $60 a trip for kicks. My friend got asked if the royal gorge (the actual canyon) was natural or man took sooo many bull dozers dude.
