Ark Guides Vs. Everyone else in Colorado

Is it just me or are guides who worked/work on the Ark less safe, more douchebaggy and generally arrogant? I think so. I think there are too many companies down which translates into unqualified raft guides. Just my thoughts. Attack at will.

Why the nastiness? Did you get drunk and lose your shoes one too many times at Disco?

It's you.

Fact: guides everywhere are douchebaggy.

With the exception being the two or three I paddle with, of course.

Another neat little factoid for ya.....lots, and I mean lots of people in Colorado are douchebags. Just look at the west slope.

Hmmm this person might be trolling. It's not like this is their first post and their name has the word troll in it.

Takes one to know one I guess...

They're obviously trolling and an alias. And doubtful they're from ft collins.

...but its a fair question...

I should include a smiley face so as to not hurt anyone's butt.

Disco? Oh you mean the place where the river community goes to be seen? Or the river trash goes to beat up on girls and look for their latest STD? No I choose to stay away from the debauchery/STD sharing that occurs there. I just think Ark guides are more douche-baggy than most. It probably is just me, but if you think the same way, say something. I'm sure you all have ran into the arrogant Ark guide. I just wanted to have a discussion on this. Also, I think trolling is when you hang your [email protected]#k out of your pants at a party and whatever girl takes the bait, now that is trolling.

trolling aside...

the few i've had the chance to interact with were awesome. especially the one who made his customers paddle upstream to help retrieve a friends boat that was recirculating in a hole next to an undercut. if anything, i feel bad for ignorantly buying them 2 cases of beer from the grocery store and not the real stuff. hope they enjoyed it anyway.
