Fucked up Shit People Do
OK - since flows have dropped, and my viewing of the buzz has not, i thought this might be a good time for this post, as colorado action seems to be waining, and the only thing catching my eye on the buzz lately is milo's m-box affair -
so last weekend, while hoping for N. Fork flows to bump up, i found myself down at waterton with a couple of my cohorts. I'll keep them unidentified for their own protection, as you will see if you keep reading. Needless to say, they both also spend way too much time on the buzz. Especially the culprit of this post....
So up above green bridge, while i'm waiting for my 2 bros to make their way down, i start reflecting on what a cool season it has been, and how much i've been enjoying exploring the colo. whitewater. Bro #1 eventually makes his way down, and joins me in a bid eddy, and we begin chatting and waiting for bro #2.
We can just see bro #2 from our eddy, and eventually see bro #2 get out of his boat...We begin to wonder what he's doing, and eventually see him get back in his boat, and make his way down to us.
Come to find out that bro #2 ate too many beer brats the night before, and has to take an emergency crap. So instead of walking off into the woods somewhere, he craps right in the water, so he can get "a little water cleaning" - now remember, bro #2 is upstream of us, and obviously aware that we are below (downstream) - as i begin to explicate my utter disgust and disapproval, bro #2 insists that his crap is stuck in an eddy, and won't flush out till water levels change.
Now before all the tree-huggers get their panties in a wad, i think we all realize that we shouldn't be crapping in the water for env. reasons, and that was definately part of my problem with whole affair, but obviously, my more immedate concern was the turd flowing downstream near me, and the general idea of wanting to stay away from crap.
So at this point, me and bro #1 are thorougly disgusted, but continue down and finish our run. Shitty thing is, at one point i end up SWALLOWING some of the water as my smile becomes a literal "shit eating grin".....
can't wait for giardia....
so as i contemplate this nastiness, i'm left wondering, what other f'd up shit have your paddling bros been doing this season....
and please have more balls than me and call them out while you are at it. perhaps the mysterious bro#2 will self identify himself as the waterton crapper.
