Just to be clear, this thread is not concerned with whether or not I would do a trip well below 1.5 ft (500 cfs), but whether I would row a boat or paddle an IK self support. I maybe a lot of things but scared of work or adventure, I do not resemble

Our family and my wife specifically have been on what they have coined and have become somewhat legendary are: "Shappart Adventures", which typically involve some bleeding, some whining and sniveling, even crying, possible cold and wet, possibly hungry for a bit, but definitely a lot of "fun". I don't think any one of them regretted attending a shappart adventure in hind sight, but at the time may have wished to be far away (for at least portions of the adventure). How else would you have any stories worth telling for latter? Another term they have coined is "ape-shap" for when things are really going ape-shit, which the former is now fully engrained in both my nieces lexicon. The real funny thing is that they keep showing up for the next trip, which has a high probability of turning out to be a "shappart adventure".
