Just being able to be out on the water is all that matters. hug.gif so much nicer in a small boat. I really want to go ocean kayaking some day. A big lake like Michigan is so much fun in a kayak, when the wind comes up it shoves you forward with the wave, like being on a roller coaster. The power can be scarey. No not scarey, exhilarating. You just laugh and when the bow crashes into a trough and sends spray into your face you dig hard with the paddle for the next peak, the next shove forward.

The Spanish came up to Osoyoos way of the Columbia river and slaughtered alot of the Indians there. . Spent the winter there and on the return met up with the Indians who were fully prepared. Slaughtered the Spanish. and there is a Indian midden that has armor and other metal implements of war buried in the midden (Indian dump)

I'm a history buff. going all the way back to the Sumerian age and the scrolls of Nibiru


Is that where you are, Osoyoos? Got A/C? chuckle.gif The Shuswaps are a tough bunch. I kayaked across Oregon a few years ago, was great! Really nice people. Longest trip I did was the Yukon River some 500 miles of it, but it's a class1 and easy. Dunno about 11 dams though 13.gif

Just no. damned.gif Lake water is perfect for kayaking, even rivers if I wanted to be adventurous. But the ocean? No freakin way.

you wanna go ocean kayaking? ok make your will and don't require taxpayers to rescue you. So sick of taxpayers having to fork out for rescue helicopters and rescue searches for these dickwads. Just kill yourselves in a way that doesn't impose on others, nor make yourselves out to be heroic/lone yachtspersons.

I paid for the swift water rescue ticket myself, my boss paid for my white water river guide licence and the rescues are volunteer work which I don't do anymore. You can turn your anger away lol.gif

How is this sport/exercise bullshit any more 'heroic' than a chain smoker or a junkie? Apparently in a health/sport/pagan wosrhipping culture, this is holier than someone who risks their life with, say, heroin?

I just can't believe how much bullshit is promoted about 'sport' it's as bad if not worse that slebrity bullshitl.

The Coast Guard has looked for me before. chuckle.gif Now I tell them when I'm going out.

I use a whitewater kayak out on Lake Michigan because of the frequency of the waves. It's not like the ocean at all. A half mile off of shore in rough water will put both the bow and stern under a wave on a 17 foot sea kayak. Once you're on a wave, you need to turn using a hull with no edges or chines. So, in Lake Michigan, whitewater kayaking is exploding.

The Jackson pros came to where I live and filed this. I'm going out to where this was filmed in 2 hours. The lake is flat today. No waves where they filmed. Nice calm, sunny ride.

I don't have a problem with it if people have inadvertently put themselves in danger, but no, therere's no reason for the taxpayers to support or subisdise the rescue of those who knowkingly put themselves in danger.
