Also why do I have to filter through a bunch of pansy ass rafting related posts before I find something kayak related. Again go glom onto some other website and let us have the buzz back.
I do hereby officially nominate you for "Whiner of the Year".
If you can't navigate the class 3 posts and threads that constitute this website ( ok an occasional class 4 thread pops up ) how do you ever expect to survive the class 5 world of websurfing?
You see many of us do both. Rafting and kayaking that is. I have taken several buzzards down the rivers that I run and made some terrific friends from here on the Buzz.
Yes I was in a raft and carrying all the kitchen and food while the kayakers were cavorting and surfing. With 20 + years of doing this stuff I have been in every type of river device known except for those Creature Craft things and I would love to try that.
Some of the more unique ways:
Inflatable pool toys. Check.
Upside down paddle boats on purpose. Check.
Sweep boats. Check.
Wooden "rafts". Check.
Obviously you define yourself by your Gnar Kayaking. A lot of us on here define ourselves by our adventures and love of the river.
That you don't is your loss.
Since you are the one that seems to have the problem why don't you go create your own kayak only website where you can sit and have a circle jerk with all your Kayak only buddies. There is probably one that exists already, but it may be filled already with kayakers who whine about rafters.
I'll be the guy floating past you with my wife and kids sucking down an ice cold beer. This time.
