Another kayaker dies on Arkansas River No one wants to start these kind of threads but I figured I would because it bothers me that after two kayaker deaths this past weekend, there is no thread acknowledging our fallen homies. RIP John Kennedy, while I don't think I knew John, he was a friend of a friend and is missed. And RIP to the unidentified boater who died Saturday. There are not many details in the article, so if anyone with more knowledge can chime in and we can learn something from these accidents that could prevent future tragedies, that would be appreciated. I do know that swimming in Pine Creek Rapid is life threatening due to the length and continuous nature having nearly lost a friend who swam out of the hole. Set safety or run in a pack. Stay safe!
