1. My healthy baby girl Kaija. She is a rockstar and already loves to hang out in daddy's kayak.



2. That I won a very serious wager with Lotsawater... and that he is now proudly sporting an Obamastache or Mustasha de Obama in Ecuador. Uh, gross!

[/URL]

3. That when I got married to my beautiful wife (whom I am also thankful for), we did not have a website and more importantly we did not leave it up for 2 months after our wedding for the buzz community to investigate, a la Mr. Embertson...

Happy Holidays Everybody! What have you got to be thankful for?

I am thankful for the crazy things Kaden tells me that remind me that I don't know anything about the world.

On fears in the dark, "Just because the water heater makes noise in the wall doesn't mean there aren't also goblins living in there."

On not roughhousing, "Hugging you hard enough to knock you over is not horseplay, it means I love you."

On seeing cardboard sign holders in front of Walmart, “we should give them some of our food, like the broccoli, so they won’t be hungry.”
On why I didn’t want another piece of pumpkin pie, “I don’t want you to weigh 300 lbs, ‘cuz then you’d be fat, and you would feel sick all the time.”
On what he wants for Christmas, "Ummm...I choose… rafting."

On a boating note I am thankful for/to...

1) Kara Lamb for great updates on flows for the Big Thompson and the Blue/Colorado. It was a fantastic Gore / Big T season and timely updates from Kara helped plan things out. Yeehaw!

2) Jim McFall, the guy who runs long draw res and holds the keys to late season runs on the Big South. Jim's flow info helped plan trips to the Big South, and also helped avoid the 5 hr round trip skunk drive when the flows went down.

Thanks Jim and Kara!

Also, thankful for no major injuries this year on the water other than a bloody nose from a paddle to the face.

I'm thankful that in 08 I got in 3 great trips. The Salt at 2500, Middle Fork Salmon at 6 ft and the Grand at a constant 12.5K.

With all the great water in Colorado, the bummer was that due to a major home remodel, of which I did a majority of the work, I never once made it onto a local river.

I'm also thankful for a great wife and 2 great kids, but unlike some of you that have posted on this thread, my kids are 24 and 20.

I'm thankful for the Friday late night visits from Flowtorches' and Dingles Mom. I wouldn't be able to handle rough weeks ahead without blowing off a little "steam."

No really, I'm thankful to be healthy and have great family and friends!

Congratulations Smokey! Excellent name choice and yes the name will help with the shredding... I am sure of it. In about 10 years there is going to be a huge flock of mini-rippers... adults beware. Smokey we need to talk. I got some ideas for you. PM your number. I tried all the ones I've got and there either Paddler or out of service.

I am thankful that you posted the picture of Pete and the website of Leifs.
These two things have been hanging in the balance of potential threats on the buzz between those two for months.

They don't have thanksgiving in Ecuador, so I'm a little late....sorry

I am thankful for the last 3 hairs left on JJ's head.

I am thankful for boobs.

I am thankful for Lief's mom, I like to "thank" the hell out of her.

I am thankful that Randy loves sheep, and has velcro chaps.

I am thankful for Adrian's masterpiece Light In Liquid. If you haven't seen it, you can go the next film festival and see it. It also appears at New Belgium 5 times a year.

I am thankful that Marty is a kayaker.

I am thankful of that there are still girls out there that will donate a "piece" to my ugly friends like Joe Keck.

Now that I live in a third world country, I am thankful for running water and electricity.

I am thankful for my mustache, which is way more hair on my upper lip than Evan has ever had on his head.

I am thankful that I live on the beach.

I am thankful for my beautiful wife, how somehow puts up with my ass.

Thanks!

After thinking about it it is great that everyone has their kids to be thankful about, and I am thankful that you all keep pumping out those little flesh anchors cause it gives me job security in these tough economic times. However, I am really thankful that after all these years I DON"T have a little jewcobi running around.

Could you imagine if South Dakota was filled with my illegitimate offspring? It would be like Las Vegas in North Korea

I’m actually a day ahead of you guys down here, but my days are long and they all seem to run in to one day anyway…so who knows when Thanksgiving was. I’m thankful for the opportunity to fly around in Hueys and see some of the coolest stuff on Earth. It’s been a pretty incredible winter (er, summer) for me. Penguins, seals, Erebus, big crevasses, glaciers and bergs, and some really sweet aircraft. It’s even warm these days…up in the low thirties, practically t-shirt weather! Lotsa, I’m thankful for your beautiful wife too. Without her, I would have given up on you a long time ago. Miss you guys! Hope all is well on the beach! Love the stache.

I’m also thankful that this huge and obnoxious ad went away when I logged in. Jeezus.

Few pics for ya. Hope it's dumping in CO, see y'all in the spring!
