Re: New website dedicated to soloing

I see no reason why soloing a river is any less dangerous than soloing while rock climbing. Most of us are adult enough to live accepting the extra risks that may arise. An interesting website, I shall keep an eye on it. Huh, a fall from a height is almost always going to cause damage. Taking a swi...

Re: Professional Coach Contract - Expenses paid, Travel requ

Sounds like an interesting contract. What job lets you work from anywhere in the world? I'm assuming that it isn't web based as you couldn't guarantee a decent connection in some of those places?

Re: Kayaking Coaches Research

Reflective practice is what everyone does naturally to some degree, but educational/coach training forces you to write down waffle to prove you are doing it. It feels like a waste of time, and imo probably is most of the time. Writing down that is, not thinking about what you have done and how you c...

Re: UKRGB 2.0

If it relies on your login then that cuts out a lot of spam, then you can add an image verifier.

Would be good to add a Review Date that sends you an email after say 3 weeks and asks you to confirm if it is still an issue. Then all the old comments would slowly disappear unless flagged as permanent.
