Hitting the Broad
Finally got on the river and it was crowded!
People in front. People behind.
Let me explain to you some kayak etiquette.
#1 Do not try to race someone you do not know to a major rapid if you do not know what the Hell you are doing. Hitting someone's boat while they are going through a narrow channel over a waterfall and causing them to flip and get trapped momentarily under their boat because of your stupidity will get you a paddle shoved up your arse!
#2 Do not camp out on the rock directly in front of the biggest rapid with your buddies drinking unless you do not mind being human bowling pins. Yes I am the person who will purposely AIM for you if you are being an idiot.
#3 Thank the person for saving your shit from floating away (my husband rescues someone and somethings every time we are on this river)
#4 Apologize if your dumbassery causes someone to get hurt.
#5 Do not hang out in the main channel with your buddies when the rest of the river is shallow and cause 900 other boats to get stuck so you can swim.
Whew! Had to get that off my chest.
This is where some jack leg hit me from behind and caused me to flip (with no apology)
Leave room people!
The bridge before the take out...another technical spot to navigate.
Found a very scary ladder that looked like it was straight out of Lost.
This snake had lunch with us.
I prefer rivers to lakes because usually there is less people. Still any day on the river is a good day despite the lower half of my body being riddled with bruises, sunburns and sore muscles. Can't wait until the next time.
