Where I want to be right now.....

So first off - this is a highlight video of a commercial outfit up in Clearwater, British Columbia, on the BC version of the Clearwater River (about 5.5 drive North of Vancouver BC) that I did a trip through but I have no association with them (other than using them for a father-son rafting trip this past Summer). The video shows rafting highlights of one particular Class 4 rapid on the river which is quite well known called Sabretooth. Apparently at certain levels there is a megawave left of the rock spire in the middle of the river. Never been through it but I've been told it is exciting at most levels from a few different people I've talked to who have run it.

Anyways, for those who just love rafting higher class water, I and I'm sure you may enjoy the entire video, but there is one part of the video - from the 2 minute mark to the 2:30 mark of them getting absolutely f'n buried in a wave.



I need to ask - is there something wrong with me, for wishing I was on the boat wanting to be buried in that wave? Is this a mental condition I have, or is there something wrong with me? Seeing that part of the video just gets me going - it gives me goose bumps sometimes...Would you like to be on that boat too?

That's awesome!
If there is something wrong with you, you are not alone. There is something about submerging boats in big waves and holes.
Thanks for helping make all the awesome cataraft videos lately happen!!

So many reasons I wish I wasn't banned from Canada. They don't care that I am not the idiot I used to be.
