Yeah, I had a life jacket on the whole time (2nd paragraph). I really just didn’t give the river the respect that it required. I thought having the people back on the shore who brought me meant that if something happened, they would be able to see it and notify somebody… I didn’t factor in that after a certain distance, Boating Gets Me Wet Vintage Kayak Lover Funny Kayaking T-Shirt with the motion of the river they sort of lose sight of you. If I did it over again, or could go back, I would have had someone in a motorized boat pacing me… and I’d have done it in July or August instead of March. I have a couple friends who did the whole river in kayaks. Longways, meaning Minnesota to the gulf. Good times greeting them when they pulled into New Orleans. Crazy shit.

Hmmm. I even re-read it to try and clarify before my first post and you made statements like gulping water, and kayak sinking with me in it. I have actually rode a fully underwater kayak in a river and kept it up with my legs via life jacket and continued paddling, Boating Gets Me Wet Vintage Kayak Lover Funny Kayaking T-Shirt and I’m not that experienced-it just sorta happened. Much shallower and narrower though for sure and I righted it after the rapid section. Glad you’re alive and preach lifejackets friend! Cheap kayaks are a nuisance. People without river experience don’t realize how limited those boats are and often don’t know what supplies they need and how strong rivers can be.

Two weekends ago we had to rescue two kayakers in little sun dolphins who had pinned their boats on two separate rocks in a mild rapid. Both had their cockpits up stream and had taken in enough water to wrap their boats around their respective rocks. I’m sort of with you, I think one of the most important things for people starting their lives in the outdoors to realize is that nature doesn’t care for you more than it cares for a grain of sand and rescue is never guaranteed. People Boating Gets Me Wet Vintage Kayak Lover Funny Kayaking T-Shirt don’t realize how dangerous they can be. You’ll know a cheap kayak immediately by the lack of bulkheads (the separate storage compartments used for storage in front and back). With proper, sealed storage spaces like that, your kayak won’t sink like OPs.
