Very well thought out and enlightening post. I'm with you on the Anonymity thing. Not sure how many people get the reference in regards to my name on this forum. But I'm definitely not a Philip. Personally, I appreciated your original post. enjoyed the video, was glad to see your dog in a pfd, and thought it was awesome how you maintained your cool and quickly snagged him from the water. Also appreciate how you reacted to some of the posts you received in regards to your post. You appear to be a pretty stand up guy. I haven't been a member of this community very long. But I have found some very judgmental and down right rude people on this board when it comes to some topics.
If you will be in the market for a drysuit in the spring, we (Moenkopi Riverworks) sell all of our drysuits at the end of the season. This year we bought the super bomber Kokotat Goretex Meridian built with goretex and a tougher bottom cordura style pant to withstand the punishment of the Grand.
Just a heads up if you will be in the market at the end of March"),
