Featured blog of the week – Lili – “Dam shame” video

Sam Ward, founder of the adventure kayak company “Love it Live it,” has made a video about the Bujagali Dam project, Uganda. Its not a protest film – it more a homage to the white water there, and a record of the fun times and the rapids which are soon to be lost. Check out the “Love it Live it” blog. Here is their video:

Featured blog of the Week – Paperclip

 Paperclip Blog 

Rather enterprising chap has tried the “Swap-this-for-a-paperclip” idea, (this kind of thing has been done before) in an effort to work his way up to owning a red Pyranah Burn. Obviously the colour is important. And he’s nearly there!! Currently he’s got as far as a sea kayak. Anyone got a burn and wants to swap it for a shark-bait-boat?

Work avoidance, sea-kayak themed: http://www.paddlingplanet.com/ Its an aggragater with articles from, and pointers to, many sea-themed kayak blogs. Addictive, oh dear.

Featured blog of the Week – 12 drops of Christmas

Featured Blog: Tom Laws, Bangor student/whitewater wastrel. Lots of whitewater photography and gnarl. Some happy browsing of local and not-at-all-local river action.

A nice idea: He’s posted up his 12 drops of Christmas, favourite waterfalls from this year.

 What would your 12 drops of christmas be? I can’t say this is my favourite drop exactly, but I’ll start:

 “On the first drop of christmas, my true love gave to me, a swim in ‘wee stink-y'”

ahansal 

Please continue, names or photage of your favourite drops pleeeez, preferably pics of you actually looking cool, in contrast to that sad picture.
