Ok...I shouldn't have read this entry. This is similar to one of my recurring nightmares.

And you were still able to take photos?!

I was thinking the same thing as Geri: WOW!

Looks like fun though! :)

I like this post. No political declarations to disagree with.

Murf - I hope it sticks into your brain for awhile.

Geri - Actually, I dropped my camera a couple times during that sequence to brace and highside our boat which is why there aren't any really big wave pictures. Fortunately, that camera was waterproof and had a neckstrap. That was even a minor rapids with only 10 to 15 foot waves.

TC - On a hot day, it is a lot of fun.

Phil - I've been so busy lately and Obama's presidency still in its infancy, that I haven't had the time to write a political piece yet. I'm sure when I do, we will have our disagreements but as always, I welcome someone like you who isn't afraid to step up to the plate and tell me where I am wrong in my beliefs. It's no fun preaching to the choir.
