Jack, have you got one of those shots that shows the Fraser runoff? That one is a real eye opener for people regarding the transport of silt by a big river.

It also explains the shoes quite well.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
