Late this afternoon I got out for some park & play at my favorite local white water spot Shady Rapids (sometimes called Big Rock) on Bull Creek. Yesterday I picked up a demo boat & was all set for some fun. I'm not used to being comfortable in a play boat but after all the inflatable stuff was blown up I was snug & comfy. Good thing I have a bomb proof roll because it would take an act of god to wet exit aka swim out of this thing.
I met 4 other people including one of Hogan's cousins Mikey Owens. Hogan tell him to get a shorter boat already that damn thing he's paddling is so 2002. Good time with just enough water to throw some ends & spin till I got sick. Really I did get sick & felt like throwing up. Getting old sucks. I guess I'll have to start taking motion sickness pills before boating in the future. I also rang my bell like it was the freaking Liberty Bell. I still have a headache several hours later. Water level dropped a little on me & a place in the hole where I had been flipping got super shallow on me. Thank god for Kevlar helmets.
More heavy rain in the future Yeah!
