Even the best boaters can get in trouble. My condolences to friends and family.
Aerocam - It's not my intention to hijack this thread, but I just have the need to say that the picture you posted of the kid standing on the picket fence freaks me out. That's just the wrong place for a kid to be. If that was my kid, I'd think I'd be way more concerned about getting him/her out of that situation, and less concerned about my wrapped boat.
Blossom sucks. I was there 5 days prior to the recent death. I never feel good when I row through that section. Too many souls are lost there, and it's tough for me to not dwell on the fact that the river is non-partial. We tend to believe we are close to nature when we're on the river. ...Nature is heartless, and this is obstacle is nothing a wake-up call to that fact.
I'd like to raise a symbolic beer to the latest victim - May your next river trip be as endless as you want it to be, and the days long and sunny.
