I heard that there was a crash, like an alien spaceship crashed into the Ark, and they weren't wearing PFDs... and like... they drowned cuz like they weren't prepared for Earths gravity! Someone should like make a law... or call the Air Force! At least that's what my friend's buddy's dog's previous owner's ex-girlfriend heard at a bar in Salida.

So, What Debate? Like it Did/Did Not Happen? People Do/Do Not belong on water? The Sheriff Should/Should Not do something? The reporting of a tragedy is just that.

A commercial raft flipped in Pinball shortly after 10:00am. A 40 yo m was unconscious and unresponsive. CPR efforts were unsuccessful.

That is total bullshit.


It was a bar in Poncha Springs. Or near there. Sorta.

While the point is good, I don't think this is the correct place to be having the conversation. The poor guy just died, lets respect that in this thread, if you have to talk about it how about taking it to another thread out of respect?

This is another reminder that even "tame" Browns canyon can bite. Be safe out there you all.

RIP
