What is the difference between a pedal boat and a paddle boat? A pedal boat uses your feet to power the boat. A paddle boat uses paddle wheels to power the boat… so most pedal boats are paddle boats as well.
@OldCatLady I think I would not have seen this, but being tagged made me curious. I would not have suffered in silence, and would be compelled to point out the error (even though others already had).
I’ve drifted away a bit from reading Meh (and even Casemates). No real reasons for doing so, other than that it’s become a bit repetitive, and it is, after all, summer. I have Meh and Casemates set to tag me when I’m mentioned, and saw the note via email that someone had. Since it was someone I liked, I came to see what it was all about.
Nice to see a discussion about grammar (and spelling) instead of unpleasantness.
@mml666 Kayak on class 5 though (provided there is a safe eddy on the other side) can be a lot of fun. I’ve been over class 4 falls in a canoe (came close to looking like a submarine but at least it was upright LOL). Kayak off of a bridge. Now that is fun and you pop up (and about half the time have to roll). Kayaks and canoes on a lake are fun too. And Kayaks don’t wear your arms out as much as a row boat.
Sailboat, canoe, kayak… in some circumstances a raft or inner tube, row boat if I am not going very far.
And years ago I had rather a blast running the river that goes down Ben Nevis (tallest mountain in the UK - is in NW Scotland, from the summit you can see Ireland except that I was never on the summit in except a heavy fog which sucked as I really wanted to see the view - I had worked for outward bound in Scotland) on an “air bed” (aka in USA english air mattress). The rapids had names like the “leg breaker”.
We had the first two teams with the best time, the first couple of men with the best time, the first woman with the best time, and everyone got a small “participation” bottle … And the prizes were different sizes of scotch? whiskey? (I now forget as this was years ago and I don’t drink). We lined up all the bottles by size on the floor along one wall in the staff room - something like 26 or 27 bottles. As there was a no drinking nor alcohol on the premises policy we were taking a risk. But the Warden (director) was out of town so we were safe. Or so we thought. He came back early and confiscated everyone’s winnings.
