Re: NANFA-- A word of caution...

well said.
since my mom has left i will take all the advice i can get.

a few years back i went to do a early spring snorkle in a favorite place...
north chaickamauga creek. the water was flowing very brisk and i was thinking
to jump in upstream and go w/ the flow downstream kinda like a carnival ride.
i had done this in the year prior but this time i was kinda nervous. the
water was flowing faster and i could not see clearly what was in the water
downstream. i finally decided not to make the leap and had to walk through a
bunch of brush to get in downstream. after recovering from the cold shock i
slowly pulled myself upstream along the edge. just below the point i was
going to jump in from had a fully submerged tree snag w/ all the broken off
limbs facing upstream! i would have been impaled.
always chose caution.
i dont want to drown and i dont want to be eaten by gators.
