Rafter's forum?

As a kayaker, I am often frustrated when I have to wade through many many posts about rafting hardware or family friendly rafting trips, when I'm really after something quite different: hella sick whitewater and everything kayak related. Has anyone else experienced this same problem? Has a separate "rafter's forum" ever been suggested?

One more post about cooler sizes...

Oh, I see. Apparently other people HAVE had this thought before.

And clearly I don't have a cooler. Rafting always struck me as a little too scary. Isn't it kind of dangerous?

Can we get a rafting forum?

Rafter Forum?

Its been debated many times and then everyone starts bitching there are two many forums as it is. Its a boaters forum and it maintains the best balance that we have seen over the years.

Can't you just select what you read by title? I never got it why some folks seem compelled to read each in every post in a message board regardless of subject matter. I only read about 25 percent of what is posted and I both kayak and raft.

Leif, I feel your pain. I too yearn for a day when all my clicks yield 100% unbridled incredible kayaking action.

If it were up to me, I would only have three forums...

Radical Class VI+ Badass Kayakers Forum
Rafters MacGyvering Shit Forum
Loud Mouth Mofos Talking Shit Forum

In election years you might also consider a "Your candidate is f$cking retarded, and so are you... forum", but this is obviously a subset of the loud mouth mofo forum and deemed redundant.

I like the Buzz just the way it is.

I started boating in canoes, went to kayaks for many years, discovered rafting some 5 years ago.

My opinion is it is all good!

Bottom line I like the way the Buzz covers it all.

YEAH! And while we're at it; I think Winter Buzz should have a separate "Le Monoski" forum.

Help me bring The Radness to the Buzz.....
