I guess I should just contact all 8000 of my Lochsa video viewers and make sure they understand that this video isn't cool, eh? Maybe I should just upload videos of people drinking coffee and running flatwater.
That video was made to enter the IWA video contest at LRM and I came in a close 2nd, just missing out on the 1st prize gopro. I was playing to the audience - dozens of Lochsa-fueled, skilled boaters who love watching some carnage footage. If you've never been to LRM, maybe you shouldn't bag on everyone who has a great (and safe) time there.
Before you go around projecting your ideals of acceptable risk you should take a step back and realize that you don't know the people involved. And you don't know the circumstances, scouting, training and preparation that goes into many of these runs. That part never makes the highlight reel.
My youtube channel will live on and continue to grow. Many people have thanked me for the beta it has provided them and how helpful it's been to see the footage. Then people like you come along and get all judgy. I don't care if you think it's cool or not, but I do care when you call me out and make a bunch of assumptions about me and the subjects of my videos.
