Rob of the River - Kayaker


HI, I'm Rob Protz, and one of the loves of my life is
whitewater kayaking. Come join me on this page and
experience a little of what whitewater is all about.

See You on the River!

"All of white-water sport involves being at one
with the power of flowing water. . ."
Wick Walker (pg 102) Courting the Diamond Sow

And I might add . . . paddling also involves having your boat become an extension of your body, and your paddle become an extension of your hands and arms! RMP


You might be a paddler if - - -

Just your basic boat escalator at Penrith!

Just a BAD kayak joke I found!

Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly;
but when they lit a fire in the craft, it sank,
proving once and for all that you can't have your
kayak and heat it too.

Class III: Intermediate Difficult. Longer rapids with strong irregular currents and high irregular waves. Maneuvering required to avoid obstacles and through narrow channels. May require scouting from shore.
Class IV: Advanced Very Difficult. Steeper, longer, with numerous obstacles and constricted passages. Scouting from shore is often necessary. Rescue is difficult.
Class V: Expert Extremely Difficult. Consists of large vertical drops, strong hydraulics, and very swift, irregular currents in heavily obstructed channels. Very violent rapids which must be scouted from shore. Rescue is difficult with significant threat to life in the event of mishap.
Class VI: Crazed Team
of Experts
Ultimate Difficulty. Class V whitewater carried to the outer limits of navigability. Nearly impossible and very dangerous. Rescue is extremely difficult with extreme threat to life in the event of a mishap.

~~~~~~~~ A New Element Discovered! ~~~~~~~~

A major research institution has recently announced the discovery of the heaviest element yet known to science. This new element has been tentatively named "Administratium."

Administratium has 1 neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons, and 111 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held together by a force called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.

Since Administratium has no electrons, it is inert. However, it can be detected as it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A minute amount of Administratium causes one reaction to take over four days to complete when it would normally take less than a second.

Administratium has a normal half-life of three years; it does not decay but instead undergoes reorganization. In fact, Administratium's mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization causes some morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes. This characteristic of moron-promotion leads some scientists to speculate that Administratium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as "critical morass." You will know it when you see it...
