Whitewater guide training in Coeur d'Alene!

A lot of my LBR's are connected to rivers.  Many of this blog's readers have worked as commercial river guides, myself included.  We learned this week that a commercial guiding company is actually reading one of our blogs.  This is cool to know.

Well, the weather here is weird.  What's that got to do with whitewater guiding, John?  Gee, I'm glad you asked.  You see, the weather is really weird here this year--there's no snow whatsoever and our van driver said he couldn't remember a day when it's be UNDER 50 degrees for the high temp!  It's dry as a bone here, the lake is down and people are clearly worried about the weather.  The NWS sez it's supposed to change soon but...

well, anyway, I went looking for stories about local weather so I could do a blog post on the weird weather.  Lo & behold, I found this really GREAT article about whitewater guide training right here in Coeur d'Alene!!
That's how the "weird weather" got somehow connected to "whitewater guiding."  Anyway, those of you readers who have connections to river running will appreciate this story--it's recent--only about a week old.

I took some time to download PDF Forge's PDF Creator so I could capture this story permanently and put it in my Google Docs.  It's a cool story.  I especially like the last line.  Click this link to read the story:  http://bit.ly/CDAguides
