Rafter runs Gore without helmet
I witnessed one of the craziest things ever, Sunday, while running Gore Canyon. A rafter, who goes by "Ron Who Runs Gore," paddled Gore helmetless. When I asked him why he wasn't wearing a helmet, he said that he's paddled Gore so much, he didn't think it was necessary. I thought he was crazy, but maybe he really is that good, where he didn't need head protection. Either that, or he was baked out of his mind, and forgot to bring one.
Be safe out there, remember your pfd's and helmets.
