    I will say Kayaking looks hella fun. it's something I wish I had tried when I was younger. I might still give it a go if my kid decides to do one of the whtewater center scout trips. Ship has sailed on me every getting serious about it though.
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    Something about the wrinkle in your forehead tells me there's a fit about to get thrown
    And I never hear a single word you say when you tell me not to have my fun
    It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone.
    and I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me about the dangers I pose to myself.

    He kinda laid back and twisted along with the giant ass paddle he had, granted it was in a flat water pool I saw him do it. Back when they had the Worlds on the Savage a bunch of kooks in canoes did stand up paddle attaining up the Potomac to deliver a flag/standard to the start of the race. They used only a long pole to push or grab water to do it. I was impressed.

    In the mid-late 90's kayaking went into warp speed, with mass amounts of boat design evolution and a flood of people. Those people bought a bunch of gear and jumped in the river. Then they realized the river is not like skiing or Mtn Biking, you can't stop mid-rapid once you commit, you are committed. You also cannot breathe upside down and long swims are scary. Kayaking is just too scary for the masses, so all those new entrants just kindof stopped going as much. It happened all across the counrtry but the drop off was especially large in the Mountain West. Like people here said runs like the Gallatin, Dowd Chute and countless others were packed, then they were empty. Now kayaking has reached a stable level and is growing slightly. I will say as far as excitement Kayaking is Back! The guys and gals out there now are charging. There is some Rad stuff going on in kayaking now after a 15 year lul. Kayaking is hard AF. Its not like skiing and mtn biking where you can not go for 3 years and you're basically right back where you were. If you take off significant time from kayaking, you feel like a beginner. So the moral of my story is Drink a Big Glass of Harden the fuck up and rediscover that straight-to-the-vain adrenaline. Or just rediscover the love of rivers from kayak, SUP, raft, whatever, because being on the water is what it's all about, just like being on the mountains is what its about.

    Wow, been a little under 6 years since I posted that.

    Good thoughts Jah and I agree.

    The other day I was driving home along the Gallatin, it was maybe 45 degrees and sleeting a little bit, as I drove past one of the put ins a group of "youngsters" was about to.

    Fringe or main, good to see the next gen getting after it.
