Every year at this time, a local ski lodge sponsors a downhill canoe and kayak race. This year the event drew no spectators and one competitor... but the guy did have the presence of mind to strap a camera to his helmet. Oh yeah, this is gonna end well.

. . . But as long as he survived. . . .

That so looks like something my brothers and I would have done when we were kids. But we at least had the excuse of being kids!

A kid at heart, I guess! Good for him! . . . As long as he survives and remains relatively . . . . normal.

Amy, to be honest, I never even knew that this was a thing. I'd heard of people going downhill in kayaks and canoes, but didn't know that it was a yearly deal.

Nope, Krissy, I can't say I'd ever be tempted.
