Exactly what I mean. I've seen water rip through houses, unearth coffins, and destroy everything in its path. I don't have to challenge that sort of power to prove anything or to be humbled, I'm quite comfortable with a certain level of danger and accept those risks. It's never been a goal of mine to run the shit; only to be a competent boater with solid skills, good judgement, and above all else to have fun. The line between fun and terror for me is well-defined, and I don't cross it unnecessarily good sir. I'm quite happy living vicariously through Vimeo and all the assorted kayak porn available.
Nothing wrong with that at all!! Seeing you stay involved after injury and getting back out there this year has been a inspiration for me. No matter who you are in this sport, having fun should be the ultimate goal. The definition of fun is what separates different paddlers! Any paddling trip with ya is always fun no matter who you are!
