Extremesport – Rafting

Det finnes mange muligheter til såkalte ‘Adrenalin-kicks’ innenfor begrepet ‘ekstrem-sport’ og ‘rafting’ er en av dem. Her sitter man trygt i en stor gummibåt sammen med en gjeng med andre padlere, men vi understreker behovet for å kunne svømme!  Båter har gått rundt, og deltagere har blitt slengt ut av båtene . . .!

1F3A5094There are plenty of possibilities for so-called ‘Adrenaline kicks’ within what we call ‘Extreme-sport’, and ‘rafting’ is one of them! Here you may sit (rather safely) in a large rubber dinghy together with a bunch of other paddlers, but we impress on you the need for being an adept swimmer. Boats have overturned, and participants have been thrown overboard!

    Heri Bergen ser vi temperaturer opp mot 20 grader for første gang i år? Og jeg svetter allerede? Hva da i morgen når temperatur på over 30 pluss er meldt? Gulp?

      Ja, og som jeg sa til, Kalabalu: Det er alt et spørsmål om hva man er vant til!
      Kroppen greier rett og slett ikke å omstille seg like fort som naturen og vårt interne ‘kjølesystem’ fungerer dermed dårligere enn det burde.
      Da blir det ubehagelig!

    Og noen har druknet.
    Sikkert moro, men man bør ikke være alene og ny i gamet.

    • Seenorway says:

      Absolutt ikke! Og jeg tror vel ikke engang det er mulig om vi ser bort fra han som droppet kajakken og forserete strykene liggende poå et slags akebrett . . .

      Hi, Kalabalu!
      Where have you been hiding yourself lately? How’s things down your way? We’ve been reading that you’ve had temperatures around 45/50 degrees?
      That’s hot, but actually it’s nothing new. I rem,ember visiting India (I seem to recall it being Mumbai at the time) when temperatures were arund 48 degs.
      And this was way back aaround 1958 . . .
      I think you have a lot of catching up to do? 🙂

      • kalabalu says:

        I should visit your place 🙂 where its cool

        • Seenorway says:

          ‘Cool’ being (30 degrees at the moment), but we have been blessed with temperatures between 17 – 22 for a long time now. That’s a bit chilly for this time of the year, but now it seems to escalate. At least for the next 4-5 days to come.

            • Seenorway says:

              You should not! It’s much about what one is used to. Being adapted to the temperatures of a Norwegian spring (8 – 14 degrees) 30-35 becomes ‘murder’.
              In my youth (sailing on the Indian and Far East coast) adapted to temperatures in the range of 35-50 I remember playing soccer in an Indian park in 48 degs.
              It was no picknic, but on the other hand it was quite voluntary! But – important – you adapt to temperature variations much easier being young than old!!!
              That’s one hell of a difference!!! Today I thrive best between 15 – 23 !!! (That’s the way it is!)

            • kalabalu says:

              okay 🙂 so I should stay put

            • Seenorway says:

              Yes! But for quite another reason: Being adapted to +40-50, you’d probably freeze to death if you were unfortunate enought to meet up with one of our colder summer days (around 10-12 degs) 🙂 I can still remember beeing in Calcutta where hundreds of people froze to their deaths during one night – at + 6 degrees C!!! And I remember I and the rest of the crew had great difficulty understanding how it could be possible to freeze to death with ‘plus temperatures’? But they werer probably used to + 25-30 degrees during nights.
