on the river" here means that you have enough
in the cooler to keep your beer cold. I have
been airboating here in the Deep South in the winter,
and it can be really, really COLD - and we don't
have snow or ice.
It has come
to my attention that some people actually airboat
on ice and snow for the fun of it. I have heard
that airboats are very useful in Alaska, and were
instrumental in building the Alaska pipeline, but
I just don't think I could handle it. I'm getting
frostbite just thinking about it!
A reader took
a ride this past winter and sent me these photos.
I'm sure this could be fun, but I see that much cold
white stuff and all I want to find is a fireplace
and a hot drink.
