WHITEWATER WORD GAMES
We enjoyed bringing you word games to solve in the Gear Box, Old-School Vocab, Raftguide Lingo, and River of the DBWorld categories. It gave us a chance to research old guide books and think about awesome trips. Hopefully we inspired you the reader as well. Here are the LAST WEEK’S ANSWERS:
RIVER QUOTES ~ great quotes from around the world.
“A river has many curves, but it always reaches the ocean.”
Donald L. Hicks, Look into the stillness
WHAT’S RUNNING STRONG THIS WEEKEND IN MURICA?
Everything! Hence our retirement from Sunday morning posts. Dirtbags need no encouragement to get outside and set a shuttle somewhere awesome, but please do remember to support our brothers & sisters at American Whitewater as they fight to protect OUR rights as boaters. They have the best free page of river gauges of America out there. www.americanwhitewater.org
Have a great Spring & Summer everyone! And remember, DBP MAGAZINE ONLINE’s mission statement:
“We exist to share stories of paddlers of all disciplines from all over the world; to interview icons and play makers in the paddling community and whitewater industry; to preserve the stories of our collective history; to raise awareness of and to protect our rivers and resources; to promote whitewater festivals and events; to report on competitions and competitors in the race community; to give a home to the artistic side of paddling in poetry, artwork, music, comics, and humor; to be inclusive not exclusive, to preach unity and support, safety and camaraderie; to break down the barriers that separate society; to have a global outlook with a local feel; and to celebrate the Dirtbag Lifestyle!”
So get out there, be awesome, and make this world a better place!!
