[QUOTE=jimr;386608]All of you whiney lil poops crying,
Grow up.

I second that!

Im sure there are plenty of things you people do that are annoying, like all your rules! The river is freedom, you don't like someone, don't invite them. Another group is annoying, float down stream past them, or wait, create some distance between them!
When you have a group of people on a river trip, you are bound to butt heads on etiquette. You have to be willing to let things roll off your back, or your going to be boating by yourself. Cause no one wants to roll with the boy scout/girl scout pointing out everything your doing wrong, or better yet bitching about you after in boating thread!

River season is nearing and you guys are all bitching. You should be excited and talking about rigging and recipes and all those other lame threads

Most of us had no idea.

They even drove back to Montana together.

We can all be better and not spoil a trip.

When people bring Barry Manilow or jazz for music on the river. F U. The river is all about rock and roll.

Canned red sauce spaghetti for your group meal. You are an asshole if you do this.

Don't do this...

I think I can honestly say the only time I've ever actually been genuinely upset on the river is my second or third time in a kayak... it was all flat water and I was in my playboat and it was tippy and I really didn't want to flip... my boyfriend kept darting in front of me and making a wake... I literally screamed at him, "Stop darting in front of me! You're making a wake!!!"
Then I cried and made him do the rest of the float alone...

I think I've come a long way.
It's a good day to be a duck....

Bad rope etiquette- know what you are throwing at and don't lose it, if you do exhaust every possible option to retrieve it.

Warm beer

Running out of beer

Trip Safety- look behind you, even in flat water, your buddy or another trip might need your help.

No water in the river when I want to go boating.

I think that most of the irritating behaviors stem from an attitude where someone's time, effort, or gear is more valuable than everyone else.

river etiquette, what piss's you off?

Bring your own lighters and batteries. These are Gold on long multi days. I do not share.

Out of all of the comments so far, and not including running out of beer, the chair thief gets my ire. Eff you. I have a nice chair. I haul it all for me. I will make your lazy ass get out of my chair if you sit in it. I'm really sorry you don't like your chair/forgot it/broke it. You may be eating dinner, and I may just want to sit down. Get your ass up. It's my chair. I have and will likely continue to be a dick about my chair. Everything else gets a pass, mostly. You have been warned about my chair.....
