Over the years. I’ve seen guys trying to get their women into WhiteWater paddling. At the put-in, guys give endless instructions & I see their lady’s eyes gloss over. It hit me one day – let’s uncomplicate the deal. I came up with the 3 rules for paddling white water. Very simple. When you think of it, also applies to life. In whitewater, if you’re looking at the big rock – Guess what, that’s where you go. If you’re not engaged & don’t have your paddle in the water, guess what. If your plan is blown, be ready to move on to something different fast.

Good rules for life too, n’est-ce-pas?

Here I am, paddling the Locust Fork River in north Alabama today (April 1, 2017) – a perfect spring bluebird day. Who knew Alabama can look this good?

Also, I may add – that I’m 100% against loosening any environmental regulations on ANY industry.  Time after time, after immense environmental damage, industry proves they cannot police themselves.  Upstream of the whitewater section, there are many chicken plants.  I’m not sure what all the chicken plant industry do to ensure their wastewater is clean. Knowing Alabama’s environmental department, it’s not many.

We paddlers rate the river quality of the Locust Fork by the chicken scale.  Bad day – 3 chickens.  Better day – 2 chickens.

  1. Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time
    choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
