Karma's too slow, that's why we need Dharma

"Karma's too slow, that's why we need Dharma."
I love this line, its so true. I thought I heard it in a movie; I am surprised that Google can't find it.
This is sort of a Google search experiment, because I posted that line on utrivers.com on March 10, 2012, and now it is the only Google hit for that line in quotes. I just removed it from there, so it will be interesting if this blog post becomes the only google hit.

A tibetan teacher who has helped me on my path, Khenpo Choga, has the clearest definition of Dharma I have ever heard.

Dharma: right thinking.
Sangha: those who have right thinking.
Thus:
I take refuge in the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha.

North Fork Championships

Wow its been a long time since I've posted here! I went up to Idaho for the North Fork Championships last weekend. It was incredible to watch. On Friday a light drizzle in Crouch let up as we drove over to the North Fork. We took up a prime spot at Juicer, where the largest crowd was. Juicer and Crunch are the two class V rapids on the lower 3 (the race was on the lower 3 miles of the "Lower 5").
Saturday was the Elite race on Jacobs Ladder; incredible V+ drops with gates!
I have not edited the video yet; (need a video editing program), but here are some unedited clips:
