In a Bucket Boat Pizzle?!

So... I'm imagining when you're bathtubed after most of the rapids and rolling into say Scissors or Pyrite... or some move in Kirschbaum's what do you do? Get your bilge pump rollin' and grab a 5 gallon bucket? Get your partner to R1 while you furiously bail in vain? Hell, you wouldn't need the paddle anyhow... the boat knows the way. Maybe you're watching your dog float away, attempt to swim and then drown? That's the appropriate time to toss back another brewskie in its honor...

Also, R2ing Gore is probably the easiest orientation because of how maneuverable you are without weight.

The guys at Liquid Descent are solid and put out a good show on Gore. It will cost you $150 bones though. Well worth it for a day in there completely planned out with solid equipment, guides, instruction, transportation, and lunch. As raftus was saying, it's money well spent.

Otherwise... good luck trying to make a Gore Guide friend in time for the Bach party...

You know Rez, when you have been guiding as long as I have, modern marvels like self-bailing rafts and bilge pumps seem like fads. If you have my set of rad skills and a dog named after Patrick Swayze, paddling a run like Gore in a bucket boat just makes sense.
After we kiss Ginger, we regularly boof scissors and then driftwood pyite. It is that simple, bust out the hand blender and make some smoothies and rest of the day is cake. Get to the take out and hit on some kayaker girlfriends, easy peasy.

'cause the gals are really impressed when a man shows up with something better than three cans of PBR and can say those words, "want to come back to MY place?"

Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse
