Buzzkill...

Sorry that I feel I need to voice this but…

WFT!

Yeah I have seen stuff like this before, nothing new and amazing but really? How much 2 stroke do you like in your coffee? Where do you live that really had a seasoned SRT team to deal with hoisting a sled from a river bottom if you CAN find it after its tank had drained? Glad to hear that you like that pink glow from farmed salmon. Really whitens the teeth.

Not toting the tree hugging hippie line here, (yes, I do rock the M7-162 and a 30-06) but there is no need for the consequences that can happen from this shit.

Keep your sleds outta the water unless you're minimizing the exposure.

That was both insanely awesome and insanely stupid at the same time. Never thought he would have made it. Probably should have been wearing a pfd or something though. Somewhat agree with the comments above, I guess the youtube hits are worth the risk though.

While that was kinda cool to watch, just imagine kayaking and having that asshole come blasting by you on a sled... I know there are a bunch of kids around here that think Slednecks are the coolest thing since sliced bread. Hope no one gets the idea to try that in the Ark or one of her tributaries...

Are you allowed to run motorized craft on the Ark? What about in the new Browns national monument? I would think there is some restriction. Or at least in wild and scenic rivers and the like

Of course not, but I would be highly surprised if it was legal to run motorized craft up a creek like that anywhere... Just because its illegal doesn't mean dumbasses won't try and repeat it. I think it would be more likely to see someone try it on Clear Creek or Lake Creek...

We don't have many rivers with nice grassy places to launch and exit the river. We should be safe at least for a while. Not to mention smacking a rock could really put the hurt on.

As much as I hate the thought of this I've always wondered why some form of whitewater jetski has not been invented. Seems like it's possible and there's a lot of yahoos that would dig it.
