Everyone is completely missing the point. This man obviously knows his rafts. The River Run is one of the greatest things ever invented. Not one, but TWO CUPHOLDERS, dual handles, a rope, mesh bottom, and a separate inflatable headrest.

Edit: Link for anyone who needs a raft. Seriously, I've owned one and that's because it's the only one I ever needed. 3 summers strong. All my buddies bought them and they're fucking great.

u/RadRac · 40 pointsr/gifs

I have 0 affiliation with this product but I saw it a few weeks ago. It helps critters in pools get to safety.

u/KRA2008 · 31 pointsr/videos

maybe it's because the animals now think your pool is TOTALLY LAME and you're a BIG NERD.

u/Kr_Treefrog2 · 24 pointsr/tinyanimalsonfingers

There was a post a few years back about a ramp made to help animals that have fallen into the pool climb back out before drowning. I remember it had a funny name - The FrogLog.

Edit: found the original post

Toadlets are so cute.

There are little mesh ramp animal-saver-things for sale (here's one on amazon) that let any small critters self-rescue when they fall in a steep-sided pool or water feature.

u/FitzChivFarseer · 20 pointsr/EntitledBitch

No. It'll be like a blow up bed? That you can lie on in water :)

u/IHateTomatoes · 19 pointsr/Coachella

I would say its a lot easier to get separated from people than you expect and then the cell service can be spotty to find them. I'm sure you'll stick close to Dad most of the time but even if its just "I'm running to the bathroom then lets meet at xyz"...sometimes its hard to find them at that spot. I know people frown on totems but something small, skinny, and inflatable like this can go a long way to finding people.
Other than that I would say just accept that a lot of people will be drunk or on drugs. This isn't necessarily good or bad...its just a lot of exposure to these things. My advice would be to just people watch and take it all in. See who is enjoying themselves, see who is making a fool of themselves, see who is being sloppy or who is being responsible. This is not so you can judge them but because when you get older you'll be in all of those situations at some point...sometimes you'll be the one way too drunk and can't handle your shit, sometimes you'll be the one taking care of that person...either way its good to be self aware of which one you are and remember what it was like from an outsiders perspective.

u/purple-puppy · 16 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I did this in 2012! I basically went the same route--white dress, neon glittery makeup. I debated between a rainbow wig vs. spraying my hair white, and ultimately went the white spray route because I thought all the rainbow wigs looked cheap and tacky. I was actually really happy with it, because my colorful neon eyes ended up being the only color in an otherwise all-white outfit, which I thought was pretty cool, but it was A HUGE PAIN to wash out, especially since it was white spray on my very black hair... it looked like I had really bad dandruff for, like, a week. For my horn, I went with this (this was before the unicorn fad made a comeback, so there weren't many good horns on the market), which I didn't love, but it worked... I think you can find a much nicer one now. Good luck!

u/mrpine9 · 11 pointsr/Charlotte

Under an hour drive from Charlotte, the Catawba is a good starting point but better options exist in Columbia SC or elsewhere in NC (Green River, Deep Creek, French Broad)

Floating can be a wonderful activity for hot weekends, the Catawba is pretty warm so don't expect a huge cool off.

If you want to make a go of it once or twice a year, DIY and save the $20/person charge of companies.

Some suggestions to get you started:

u/TOGTFO · 10 pointsr/bestoflegaladvice

Nah I could see you just needing to set up like five to ten of those bear spray ones, then have those tiny little black hose ones that spray a super fine mist about to water your garden. You could then have it set to go off by a trigger, motion censor (I think this one could prove problematic for local wildlife), or maybe even have an app for it.

When I read the bit about the pepper spray rigged to the sprinklers, it really got me thinking on how you would do it effectively. Where you would position them and if you could set them off in relay.

That's why I think the multiple big can of bear spray like this or this but they only seem to have a 5 second blast. So having a bank of about 20 or 30, with 3 on each sprinkler system, meaning you can send more 5 second bursts through it.

As I'm in Australia and pepper spray and most definitely bear spray is illegal (without a licence I think) I'd have to find some of that fart spray instead. I could get some Raspeberry Pi's, servo motors and with my 3D printer could cobble something together.

Realistically if he had access to a 3D printer (even without you could managed with duct-tape), and could learn how to do some basic programming, you could knock something up in a month or two of weekends and some after work time.

EDIT: Just found this awesomely perfect for the purpose sprinkler.

And this one for those neighborhood kids who you don't like. Or this, or maybe if you have some Bronies this.

If you're willing to wait a couple days, the River Run 1 on Amazon is a durable tube with two, count em, TWO cup holders.

u/justler6 · 4 pointsr/washingtondc

This is what we do... A quick path is just to take the bridge into VA then on the WVa side over the last bridge hang a right toward harper's ferry and there's a little parking lot. You don't have to pay to park, but they will put an envelope on your car. You can start here if you like or end here.

If you choose to start here, there's a landing area where the rivers Ys and you can get out there and walk a bit... this tubing trip is about an hour or so.

If you use the park area as your get out spot you can go up the river a ways by river riders and launch in on the public boat launch that is right near theirs. Take a look at a map on google maps and follow the river up... We just drove our cars around and you can follow the buses to see where they put in and get out.

From where River Riders puts in on the area that's around their HQ, the ride is about 3-4 hours down to the parking spot by harper's ferry... I would say there's only one rapid that is challenging at all, but a group of 8 of us all managed to make it through just fine, and it was pretty fun.

Tubes from Amazon like River Riders has are about $18 shipped if you have Prime (

Nice! We're going to have so much fun. Get ready to ride the bull. Seriously though, I think we're going to get it.

u/Beckergill · 3 pointsr/Unexpected

I agreed to let my neighbor’s 12 year old twin boys come swim in my pool this past weekend. At one point, I looked out my window and one of them was pretending my pool noodle was his gigantic penis and the other was humping an inflatable whale pool toy.

So yeah- that’s where I got my inspiration. My comment was complete fiction, but its probably close to what happened. Middle school boys never change.

u/willtel76 · 3 pointsr/pics

I've had one for about two years and it works well enough. I've only pulled a few frogs and lizards out since adding it. They aren't perfect but in my case it works. Before I got it carcass removal was a daily occurrence and reaching in for the skimmer basket was like a scene from an Indiana Jones movie.

Honestly, I am pretty damn picky when it comes to tubing. There are a lot of ways for it to go south and be less than enjoyable and I am not about that life. What I would do if I were you (and when I am me on a new-to-me river) is find a livery that does tube rentals and do that for your first time out. What that does is usually puts you on a generally slow and shallow stretch of river that has been cleared of tube popping debris, lets you see if you like it, and, if it is just you and your kids, has the bonus of picking you up and taking you back to where you put in. Then you know for the next time and you buy this or this. We have both in our small flotilla and have used them dozens of times. Some extra pro tips: clip a life jacket to at least one of them so in case you do pop a tube you still have a way to float and pick up a cheap $1 plastic paddle from Goodwill if you ever see them, they are great for pushing off of potential obstacles.

edit- OR drive 2-ish hours to u/tipsycup’s kayak and tube livery and I will handle it all for you! F-r-e-e, plus keto boat snacks!

Intek River Run Tubes on Amazon are legit awesome.

Check out this sweet review. . .
5.0 out of 5 starsAWWWWW SNAP!!!
March 23, 2011
Color: Blue|Verified Purchase
I was also admittedly drunk, but whatevs. The river was hella low, and i got stuck on some rocks several times, but this tube was like "AWW NAW HELL NAW" and i just scootched right over top of all them rocks and sticks and nonsense. The cupholders and handles were perfect for my can o' wine and my Nalgene o' Bootlegger. Not gonna lie, I threw up in the river, but I don't blame the tube. A few people had other brands of tubes, and their tubes popped, but luckily, i had brought an extra one of these already inflated. Ironically, these were the same people who were dissin on these vinyl tubes because "canvas wrapped is sooooo much better." WHERE IS YOUR CANVAS GOD NOW??

I don't know where the tubes are now, i think they might have gotten thrown into a bonfire, but if i ever feel like pukin in a river again, this will be my method of flotation. It inflated and deflated super fast, but it was bulky to carry back to the pick-up point.

Final word -- If you need a tube: BUY THIS JENK RIGHT HERE

u/jillbowaggins · 2 pointsr/Advice

My folks use these on their pool, saves squirrels, gophers, and frogs:
EDIT: theirs kinda floats:

u/azureice · 2 pointsr/Atlanta

Don't buy a shitty walmart float. Just buy a good Intex tube, they are $18:

Much better quality, two cup holders, a headrest, a good valve, thicker plastic. Cheaper to buy this than to pay for one tube rental.

u/StumpyMcStump · 2 pointsr/pools

Frog logs work great:

Supplies must be low though, as no Prime shipping options.

u/HoldingHope · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I would love to visit the Dead Sea more than anything! I missed out on a chance to go, and I'm dying to get to go!

It is between Palestine/Jordan and can be visited on either side. I really really want to go, because of all that salt water, and cliff diving and summer! I'm so very excited for summer so I can go spend every single day on the beach.

Funny, I was missing summer so much these past few days, that I was summer shopping on Amazon! I added this AMAZING volleyball net for the water to my wishlist yesterday. Its $0.99 over, so if that doesn't work, I would love to have this seat!!

Thanks for the contest! Hope summer comes fast for you! :)

Edit: Summertime and the livin' is easy

Are your plants in bloom? I find that bees get a little drunk when they've been sucking down pollen. I put a froglog in my pool and at least it gives anything that falls in a fighting chance. Sometimes bees can even get to it if I don't scoop them out in time, which I also do when it's blooming time.

u/AdmiralBallsack · 2 pointsr/Atlanta

Depends. I tried using the shuttle once and they refused to take me since I didn't have a "dual-chambered" tube, which is bullshit. It was just their way of forcing you to rent one of their tubes if you want to ride with them. Taking 2 cars is definitely the way to go, leaving one at the exit point (Parking costs $3). If you're going to go more than once over the summer, just invest in the tube a life jacket. These are the tubes everyone buys, and buying it costs the same as renting it once. It won't help you for tomorrow, but life jackets are currently $12 on Amazon. So once you make the initial investment, it's free to go as much as you want after that.

I use a different route than what was suggested above: Start at Cochran island, 5450 Interstate N Pkwy Sandy Springs, GA 30328 and end at Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area: Paces Mill
3444 Cobb Pkwy Atlanta, GA 30339. I've done a lot of tubing and this is the best route, and it's very popular. It takes 3 hours. I've never heard of being able to rent only the life jackets, but it may be possible.

I go pretty often, so let me know if you have any other questions. Oh, and here's where you check if it's safe to go, but this is only an issue if it's been raining during the week.

EDIT: I just saw an even better deal for life jackets

u/mtbmike · 2 pointsr/pools

Oh boy a new nightmare for my northeast mind to torture me with. Worse we get in the pool is bunnies so I bought this. Recently watched a chipmunk dive in on purpose to escape my path. He swam directly to this thing and scattered out haha

This is what we use have not had a Problem yet. The Head rest and Cup holders make it worth it. 4 rafts & Cooler $99.99 Those large ones are nice but you will get stuck in a few places and if you head into a tree your screwed. use the rope that comes with to tie them together also This is the best cooler raft we found the sevylor one is cheap, the lazy river one was too small for our cooler.

u/JoeSki42 · 2 pointsr/Denver

My fiance have a couple of Intex River Runs.

Admittidly we haven't used them very much yet, but I've seen lots of other people use them and they tend to be the first thing that pops up when you google "floats for tubing". Lots of Amazon reviews claim they're pretty tough and can withstand even some of the tougher rapids Again, I'm a newbie here too, but when I was looking this up last year a lot of other message boards pointed towards these.

u/brentsopel5 · 2 pointsr/missoula

No problem. A few of my friends have this tube by the same manufacturer as the other. It's $20 but has significantly thicker material (felt like the same stuff as a whitewater raft), cupholders, and a net across the bottom you can sit on rather than fall through. Have fun!

Get a couple ramps you can put on the edge of the pool so they can get out on their own. You’d hate to find one dead.

u/Phaedrus0230 · 1 pointr/Charlottesville

I have one of these. It's pretty high quality and still cheap compared to renting from a company. The only complication is that you need two cars to coordinate rides. My friend also has one of these which lets us bring along a boatload of drinks and snacks.

If you stick with that brand, they have a great locking system to attach everyone together.
