Guess we are more accustomed to big water out here. So many stories of lost rafts. Be safe out there brahs.
Is it just me or does the Pacific Northwest need a mountainbuzz of their own? You could have threads about pulling a trailer with a Prius, or body piercing in camp. More accustomed to big water....

Everybody's mountain buzzed. So much hype. Every duder in CO wants to be a climber, skier, biker and boater/kayaker. They get a trucker hat and a Patagonia pearl snap shirt and start spending their trust fund on gear, not always aware that you can't buy experience and end up in over their heads.
Do I generalize? of course. Am I talking shit? always. Keep it coming PNW, this kinda stuff is great. P.S. Pearl Jam-most overrated band in history.

Or which Starbucks should I go to today? The one on the northeast corner, the one directly kitty corner across on the southwest corner, or maybe the one half a block up on the right????

To be fair to bucket boater, there IS a LOT of carnage being posted lately. Seems like every other thread starts with "Lost..."...

I was thinking the same thing. Holy cow. In the past week I've seen lost paddles, kayaks, throw bags, Go Pros, rafts, even a bootie. You folks in Colorado must be having a ton of fun!

I'm still waiting for the story about one lost and one broken oar on the San Juan.

With no steroids to keep us on top we are prone to losing Super Bowls and a few extra swims.

Since I moved to Colorado from Oregon I have clearance to make jokes about both.

The PNW has hipsters in tight jeans, black hair, pale skin that love to claim they listened to every band in the world before they became cool.

Colorado has a billion Subaru outbacks equipped with a roof rack to hold every possible outdoor action sports gear. The driver wears shorts year round and has skin that is starting to look like a shriveled up leather door matt that was left out in the sun for way to long.

Oh wait, PNW and Colorado actually have both of those things.

All jokes aside, the PNW does have much larger water but it is larger because the rivers are WAY wider and just overall bigger. I actually find the whitewater to be much more intense here in Colorado and the rivers in the PNW are much more mellow. Of course there are exceptions to that rule but and I have obviously not rowed every single river in the area but overall I think things are more intense here in Colorado from my experience.

PNW here. We'll be doing a yoga float soon. All gluten free and fair trade. Bring your own Kambucha and don't forget your Tom's toothpaste.
