But there is not sport, hobby, or past time worth having to BREAK MY LEG in order to escape certain death.
I speak of a recent story about a Kayaker who broke his leg in two places after being pinned under a tree as the white waters began to rise over him…
Maybe not a very big deal until I did a bit of research and found that Kayaking is one dangerous sport. This is not a Sunday pontoon ride with Granny.
- White waters can move extremely fast.
- Undertows can literlly grab you and suck you under debree, rock faces, trees, etc… holding you like a Grizzly,
- Deaths related to Kayaking are climbing as more folks get into the water without the experience or the proper safety gear…
I say let them go to their doom. If you play games with your life, eventually you lose… or have to BREAK YOUR OWN LEG to escape. Either way… I will stick to my X-Box.
