White Water Rafting

We went on a new adventure last weekend. White water rafting. And i learned why they call it white water-because the where there are rapids the water churns and makes it turn white. Exciting and informative!

Scott has his own equipment and invited us out. there were 2 groups of 8

Taking a much needed lunch break. Rafting is hard work! We left the house at 6 am and didn't get home until 11 pm. We rafted down the river like 5 times I believe? the last run one boat started at the top with more rapids. Of course I was stupid enough to want to go down that run. Bridget and I were steering in the front. Scott was giving directions in the back. We were headed straight for a rock and not hearing any instructions from Scott. We hit it and the entire boat flipped. It was pretty freaky. But what an adreneine rush! I definitly want to go again. It was hard work but relaxing when you just got to sit and float down the river at times.

Looks like you and Mike had lots of fun. I've only been once but I loved it. Glad to see you guys doing fun things together, just the two of you.

OH MY GOSH, you have got to be kidding me! I'm happy that you had so much fun, but this would not be on my list of things to do. I only have a few years left, don't wont to cut it any shorter than needs be.

Sounds like a fun!!! I can't wait to go again. Maybe as a family go up to Idaho and do the Snake.
