I know this has been the topic of forum conversations before, but what are everyone's thoughts on solo boating? I found found myself in three rivers today and after paddling some class IV with another boater, decided to hit up hospital rock when the other guy decided he wasn't up for it. To be honest, I thought it might be a little stupid, but man did I have a good time. I have never boated with such focus before in my life. One of the best days I've had on the rock and it was a nice hot lap in under an hour. It's not something I do a lot. Nevertheless, I often boat with a very strong crew that I perhaps over-rely on and it's empowering to so forcefully be reminded that I am solely responsible the success of my boating. There's such a psychological comfort in boating with your team, but I think it's important to prove to yourself every once in a while what you are capable of and what your limits are. I think it's also important to contrast your decision making when you are by yourself and when you are with a safety net. I think we should more often boat like we would when we are by ourselves, so that we don't ask to much of our friends in situations when things could go wrong. Just some thoughts.
