Swim and tell ?????

So, just wondering what others thoughts are about these two things…

1 - A fellow kayaker asking if there were swims on a trip they didn’t attend…and who the swimmer was.

2 - A fellow kayaker-X telling another kayaker-O that someone-Y swam and s/he-X didn’t on a run they (X&Y) did with a group.

Just putting it out there for opinions?

You swim, you fess up. If you don't its the rest of the groups duty to tell the world with as much embellishment as possible. As far as X not swimming and spouting off about it, their time is coming...every day is one day closer to your next swim.

If theirs just two of you and you both swim, I don't know.

The man/woman with giardia is obviously the one who swam, those booty beers will take their toll.

Is it more embarrassing to swim as a rafter or a kayaker? Isn't swimming like falling on skis. If you didn't do it you weren't trying hard enough?

Lets not forget!

the bottom line is pretty simple... kayaker X, Y, or Z can talk all the trash they want. The swimmer still has to shoot the boot! Clear away that bad river juju.
Cheers

I'd say don't worry about people who measure their your success by your swims.

I once saw a solid class V boater swim in an eddy. Doesn't mean a thing. Does that mean the class III boaters with us that day are better boaters than him?

Just play for an audience of one.
