Funny. Good timing. Did anyone see the Saturn car perched above pineview yesterday? It was about two inches from plummeting into the runout to the disney slide. Rear right tire was well off the ground. They had to have shat themselves.

Something needs to be done about this. Seriously. This the main reason I wear a helmet while rafting. Safety first dude!

Yeah I was on the river the other day when a bus with 25 rafters fell into the river killing all 25 + the driver right behind me causing a tidal wave probably 25ft high which I surfed all the way to the TO. I was pissed cause I was in my creeker and wasn't in my playboat for some good surf action!

Ya that was crazy that driver definitely soiled himself, and maybe the person next to him..

The driver of the Saturn was a female by herself. I was gonna pull her out but she had a truck already on the way.

The view from the run out was trippy.

Next, the politicians will enact a law that hikers on the Bright Angel trail must wear helmets from airborne glass Coke bottles hurled by vehicle passengers on the planned highway at the rim. Ah, wait....Coke doesn't come in glass containers anymore. Nevermind!!!
