Questions About Class Vi River

What is the best intermediate kayaking river closest to Dallas Texas?

Me and my friends/family have been Kayaking a couple of times in a class 2 river and we want to find something a little more challenging (not too dangerous). I have been looking at rivers close to north Texas and can only find a couple of decent ones with good rapids. I need advice on a good river with a steady flow and a decent amount of rapids. We want to be on the river for close to 3-5 hours. Any advice would be greatly appreciated !!

Whitewater Rafting the Rogue River

Help us decide on a whitewater rafting guide/outfitter for the Rogue River in southern Oregon. My husband and I will be attending the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Oregon from August 27-September 2. While we're there, we'd like to try whitewater rafting on the Rogue River. (Neither of us have done this before.) There are at least half a dozen rafting companies that offer basically the same half-day trip on "The Nugget" section of the river, a mix of class I-IV rapids "suitable for novices." All are in the same price range and offer similar amenities. I had no luck Googling for a site where people review such trips. Has anyone used any of the following rafting companies in Ashland, OR: Noah's River Adventures, Adventure Center, Rogue Klamath River Adventures, Kokopelli River Guides, Momentum River Expeditions, Arrowhead River Adventures. Additional advice on neat stuff to do in and around Ashland would be welcome.

down by the river - regex and poker cards

looking for regex expert to help with replacing playing card references Hello mefite regex experts! I am trying to process a string to find and replace playing card references. When texas hold ‘em poker players express playing cards they use a number of formats, for example ‘7-7’ to indicate a pair of sevens or ‘7-8-9’ to show the three card flop. They also show cards with their suits, for example ‘kc-kd-kh’ to show king clubs, king diamonds and king hearts. However, the ‘-‘ are arbitrary, they could use spaces ‘kc kd kh’, commas etc. AND they are variable length, so I need to find ‘A-A’ ‘7-8-9-10-j’ and ‘7c-8c-9c-10c’. I want to find these strings and replace them with HTML (using ColdFusion) and I am looking to the regexp which will allow me to process things like: ‘xCx’ or ‘xCxCx’ or ‘xCxCxCx’ or ‘xCxCxCxCx’ or ‘xCxCxCxCxCx’ where ‘x’ is any one of a number of special characters (space, comma, !, period, -, etc.) and ‘C’ is one of 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9

A Van Down By The River

My wife and I live in an expensive (by non-NYC standards) NYC apartment. Recently, lamenting how much of our salary went down the rent drain, we wondered if we could save money by living in a van. (This is a thought experiment. We're not really planning on doing it.) Is this feasible economically? Let's assume we already have a van. It's big enough for a mattress and our clothing. Parking is free. (Yes, parking is a bit of a nightmare in NYC, but if we're willing to drive around -- or park in Brooklyn or Queens -- I'm sure we could always find a space.) I am assuming we'd keep our middle-class jobs and (other than our "home"), live a NYC middle-class existence: go out to see movies, etc. This is what interests me about this thought experiment. The people I've known who have lived in vans and cars have all been poor. But what if middle-class people did it? Would it be cheaper than living in an apartment? (Let's assume 2K a month rent, which is fairly typical

Help me remember a Spanish quotation about water and rivers and life

Find a quote by a 16th or 17th century Spanish writer that metaphorically compares life with water flowing from rivers to the sea. In a Spanish class a couple years ago, I read a short story by Horacio Quiroga entitled "A la deriva" ("Drifting"). It's about a man in the South American jungle who is bit by a poisonous snake and gets on a canoe, drifting down the Parana, hoping that he will find medical help downriver. (It's rather good, by the way, as is almost anything by Quiroga.) My professor introduced the story with an epigrammatic quotation from an early Spanish writer, which compared the unceasing flow of the world's water from the rivers to the sea with the human journey through life. I unfortunately cannot remember the name of the writer or any particular words of the quotation, so it's not very Google-able. It's not Cervantes. It's rather poetic. We were told that the quote is rather well-known (but the extent of literary fame can be har

Register for Classes: New River Community College?

So I have applied to New River Community College, bu I don't know how to register for classes. The papers they mailed me said i need to speak to a counselor about filling out a class schedule, however they don't tell me a name, a department, a location, or a phone number, which makes that quite difficult. I don't have anyone to contact at the college at all, and because they have multiple campus's I also don't know where to go to get help face to face. If anyone knows the school or can do a better job than I have at interpreting the website, that would be much appreciated because I am totally lost and don't know what to do. If it matters my major is called: AA&S Education I would very much like to call, however, I do not know what number to call. They have a lot of them and since they do not say who to call, that makes calling difficult

What is the simplest way to fertilize my River Birch tree?

I live in central ohio, and this poor tree has seen some better days. It's held on, though, and actually looks really good right now. I've learned it likes lots of water (I can usually get it to green up again if I keep it watered), but it's growing so slowly and the trunk doesn't seem to be getting as wide as it should. I'm not into fussy gardening or expensive solutions, so does anyone have any good all-purpose fertilizing ideas for my tree? The soil it's in is old (my neighborhood is an 80 yr. old "working class" area, and there's clay under about 8 inches of topsoil. The tree is about 4 yrs. old and almost 6' tall but anemic looking. Help me beef it up :-)!

what is your opinion of article "Class Dismissed"?

what is your opinion of walter kirn's article "Class Dismissed" in the article he talks about how 12th grade is a waste of time and money and how we shouldn't included that year and just go off to gollege. here's a copy of the article According to the unwritten constitution that governs ordinary American life and makes possible a shared pop culture that even new immigrants can jump right into after a few movies and a trip to the mall, the senior year of public high school is less a climactic academic experience than an occasion for oafish goofing off, chronic truancy, random bullying, sloppy dancing in rented formalwear and interludes of moody, wan philosophizing (often at sunrise while still half-drunk and staring off at a misty river or the high-school parking lot) about the looming bummer of adulthood. In films like “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” “Dazed and Confused” and “High School Musical 3,” senior year is a do-little sabbatical from what is presented as the long dull labor of
