Boomer styles crystal creeks on national TV

You guys see this yet?

Top Gear — Season 3 Full Episodes — Videos

I thought it was sweet even if the 'race' was a total hoax. Definitely some of the best scenery and creeking and wheelin' CO has to offer! Too bad they didn't get film of Boomer claiming a first D of Miller's.

I was impressed that Boomer linked up the S Fork to Yule to the N Fork to the Crystal without getting outta his boat....Honeybadger indeed.

I gotta give credit to that driver, I'm scared shitless to drive 10mph on those roads!

We were up on the NF Crystal when they were scouting it. Was wondering if it would actually get done. I guess so with some good editing.

I wrote on Top Gear USA's facebook page about how fake the race was. I enjoyed seeing some of my favorite runs on the show, but it was pretty sad that they amped it up so much. I saw on an offroad forum people were talking about how crazy that kayaker was. I had to laugh, because I've paddled them with so many different people over the years. The whole thing was a joke, and so is the TV show itself! At least there was kayaking on it. Good marketing for Boomer.
