comment Bowline knot, end at the inside or outside?
I understand what he is talking about, but he either means here as this site, or needs to link here to a demo. Honestly I think this would be better as an answer to a question of how to tie a bowline. Or changed to a question of how to tie it and then an answer of "Make sure the end is on the outside."

@Laura If you edit your answer to include spats or mention that not all are insulated I will accept it. I think that would make your answer complete.

comment How to choose a class of rapids for a variety of skill levels?
@thursdaysgeek I'm not saying life jackets don't save lives. What I am saying is swimming ability is a huge factor, and a life jack is not enough to save you. Without a guide carrying you, you have to be able to swim for the rescue line because the throw will not be perfect. You need to be able to swim out of the way of a hazard (wood or other strainers can kill you in your life jacket very quickly). Or through the under-toe of a strong eddie, a non-swimmer can do none of these things. Also, for excitement factor, many guide companies overstate the Class of rapids.

Definitely good points. To a new paddler a longer II does seem more fun than a short III. Attitude and confidence are also huge factors. We usually explain before had that this is an all day roller-coaster, if you don't like the upside down loops you can't get off in the middle.

comment What brands make propane lanterns, stoves, heaters, and accessories in America?
If you look at the dates on most of the posts they are from 3-5 years ago. Many (not all) of the listed companies have moved some production offshore in recent years. Good answer, just needs a qualifier.

@thursdaysgeek Where have you been whitewater rafting? Ever gone without a guide? Your swimming ability is definitely a factor.
