It is fun. I tried whitewater canoeing about 12-13 ago. I ran a couple of 
races on that same river, downstream from where I took the photos. It was 
only class 1-3 rapids. I've run the river at the bottom of the hill from my 
house and I tried a kayak but never learned to do an Eskimo roll. I can 
(and did) totally outfit myself to backpack for less than the price of a 
good boat and buying a boat is just the start. It's a sport for the young 
with good reflexes. At age 60 I don't feel the need of an adrenaline rush. 
On the contrary, activities that promise to prolong my life are more 
appealing than those that risk ending it suddenly. I still paddle but I 
'carry' around big white waves.
