Tell me this Soggy, what section is appropriate for a 4 year old to ducky on the Upper C assuming that there is another adult in the boat and ever one is "experienced"?
I think I've made my opinion known, I don't think it's safe. Doesn't make it right, makes it my opinion. I've witnessed too much carnage and tragedy, whitewater and otherwise, in my life to just turn to other cheek.
Right, we're all entitled to our own opinion, but there's a difference in constructive criticism and giving your two cents just to give your two cents. Your response is condescending, it's not helpful. You basically called the guy an idiot for asking, nice job.
Do you have kids? If you do, I'm sure you know it's tough trying to balance fun for them and fun for yourself. We all have to start somewhere.
