sorry edna the upstream side of the boat does not work well in most situations. Tends to push your legs under the boat and make it impossible to get in. FTW??
Yeah, I was wondering about that advice as well. Depending on the current, that could end up badly. Kick, lunge, swing a heel over the tube and use your leg muscles to help lever you up. Helps if someone on the boat is helping.

Uh, I'm just gonna go find a cash machine.

Sorry, up stream oar.

Yup, I'm wrong. Don't listen to that upstream part.

there's some true sissies on this board i know for a fact cause you don't all drink the booty. as for clueless in LA, MAN UP. simplest advice there is. put it this way you got some wangsters chasing you down the block and you have to run half way up the wall to get a good leap and grab a hold of the top. what are you gonna do let them cap your ass or get the f*Ck over the wall? same thing son.

Like my turista from LA umpteen years ago on the Rogue: "If we stop paddling, will the raft fall off the tracks?" No shit.

Easy to pick on LA folks. Most of 'em think a river was designed by somebody.

Kidding aside, like casper's talkin' about, it's called a-f*#@ing-drenaline.
4 out of 3 people have trouble with fractions.

I know this is an old thread, but it came up on my screen today.
Not much going on here in fly over country. I just read the entire thing.

After many years here on the Buzz, I am still reading threads like this one and laughing big time. The questions asked and the feed back given are just "precious" as we used to say back on the farm.

Funny stuff for sure!
