Just came across this on Facebook. Someone had a bad day.
I did the grand this year with a 78 year old, who was rowing an 18 foot boat, gear, passengers and all, he had some of the sweetest runs out of the entire group, which consisted of 2 river rangers, couple commercial guides and a couple never evers, who did very well, not a flip or wrap in the whole trip, save for them messing with a ducky LOL. Last year, same trip, 70 year old with a torn ACL, shit, he worked harder than many on the trip in camp, and what he did row (he had his 26 year old daughter along who rowed 50%) he did with style and grace, again no wraps or flips.Some of you guys make it sound like anyone over 65 is lucky to still be on the water be on the water. NUTS to that. I'm 73 and leaving for my 4 raft trip this year.
