The one thing we should have done was dip the pipes in Plasti Dip to coat them with plastic so they would not rust.

Just get the galvanized pipes.
I used the galvanized pipes when I made some extensions and haven't had any trouble with rusting.

Re: Lightning Question

I'm not sure where to get, but don't forget to spread out.

A few months ago was on the Tot with lots of lightening and 4 or 5 people sat under the same tree to wait out the storm. There were only 3 of us not under that tree. A few short to give CPR if they are all hit.

Re: Alright who's the "funny guy"

I can just imagine how the decision was made...

"...everyone ready...okay..."

"...1,2,3,NOT IT!!!!..."

...Harlan comes walking out of the bathroom..."damnit!"

"...Okay...let's move on...Dangerboy here?...Nope? Well that's VP taken care of..."

Re: Hometown Throwdown Preview video

My experience has been that when the Queen of the Rapid comes rolling in, you'd better get out of the way, or hold on for the ride (and maybe cover your teeth and make sure you're helmet is on tight). I'm pretty sure her #1 goal is carnage. :lol:

Re: Ot-Devils Den

There is the discovery trail that leaves from the visitor center. It goes by Devil's Den Cave and Ice Box cave as well as a nice waterfall. It's a short hike. Bring several flashlights if you want to enter the Caves. Devil's Den is lots of fun. Just follow it back till you can't or don't want to go ...

I thought social lubricants were supposed to prevent rust?

I can loan you the gear, but I'm in LR, so probably won't do you much good (not reallly on the way from NW Ark to Dragover).

Re: Piney Sunday ARG/RBF Trip Report Photo Preview

A John Wayne quote from the Sons of Katie Elder comes to mind. A free copy of The Paddlers Guide to Hiking Richland Creek to whoever guesses it first. "All we want to do is make you a good boater. You fight us every step of the way." "I don't want to be a good boater. I want to be just like the res...

Re: Piney Sunday ARG/RBF Trip Report Photo Preview

Ryan, that's a lot of big talk from someone who decided to stay curled up in bed instead of coming out to paddle Sunday. You can't play if you don't show up. Do we need to start over with the basics? Step one: get out of bed! Step two: go to bathroom mirror and say in a clear, direct voice 'I will n...

I emailed my parents who live near there and a few friends who play frisbee on Lewis fields a few blocks from there. Hopefully someone will spot her.

Re: Norell Spillway

Yesterday was my first time out at Norrell. Man it is awesome. But it wasn't joking around either. Tim counted up the carnage and only 3 of the 8 people out there stayed in their boats the whole time. The second half of the first rapid is one of the trickiest I've ever gone through. After better par...
