... and you realise the collective group amassed paddling experience of that river adds up to around sixty years. And, there are just two of you in the group!

It's dark, again
Time to reassess the faff-laden folk you're paddling with

That despite your pimped out floursecent flip paint colour scheme, widened arches, low skirts and dropped/strectched/stanced boat, the sheep just aren't noticing you. What do those locals hanging out with them and talking to them have that you don't???

You have left the keys of some else's car at the start - and they have to make a quick get away in their car from which is at the takeout

...and you're regretting the earlier decision not to "go", confident that you'd be able to "hold it in".

and you're chasing a boat (plus the car keys*) down the upper Tryweryn and you've got one chance to get it safe.

...but stress levels are contained as not only does the boat and car keys eddy out at the cafe wave, safety, control and a loo are all available in one accessible location, there's a moment of clarity as you hit the perfect line straight into the bowl along with your own car keys and phone, should have checked those zipped pockets carefully......

...and your friend (who shall remain nameless) drops right into the middle of the pit of the "Fall with no name" at over one on the gauge and gets spun on his stern in a Toro...


...then on your next lap, in the dark, you shout "Rich (Who works at Canoe & Kayak Store) you're an idiot, you did it again, you're so lucky" after he went even deeper into the pit and was squidged out just avoiding being pushed into the cave.
