Do any other couple boaters experience the pressures that come with creekin' together?
Yes. Always. But, we've also had some great runs down good creeks together. In my opinion, as soon as you get on a creek you are no longer a couple, but are just boating partners and have to look out for each other just as you would anyone else in the group (ie not more or less). I think its difficult for a couple because there is usually only one women and a bunch of men. We don't get along as well kayaking, because I really like to push myself and sometimes my girlfriend isn't ready. Snowboarding and mtn biking are much easier, because our skill level is closer together.
I'm free around weekends the most, but do have some week days open occasionally. Could be interested in Bailey tomorrow...
