A soul boater is one who paddles for themselves and not for the camera, for their friends, for money/sponsorship, or anything else. But what happens when paddling does involve others....like your wife or your kids. My wife recently had a baby and I love to paddle and sometimes that involves Class V, but I feel that I shouldn't be putting myself at risk for my kids sake. Does this mean that I can no longer put myself in Class V situations. I mean, shit happens, look at Rich Weiss, an olympic kayaker who died running Big Brother, a Class V waterfall that he ran numerous times before on a falls that is considered an easy drop by some peoples standards. I guess I would be comfortable limiting my kayaking trips to Class IV, but I haven't peaked yet and I love wilderness boating. What do you think?
