Rafting – August 19, 2010

After going through a few rough years, I was determined to live life again.  Something I have always wanted to do was to go white water rafting.  One problem…I didn’t know anyone that wanted to go…so one day I just happen to mention it while at the gym with Andrea…and waalahh!  She wanted to go!  So we picked at day and made our reservations.  I was so excited….only to get sick right before were supposed to go.  Ugh.  Luckily, the rafting place let us re-schedule for the following week.  I realized that I was so unprepared for “outdoor” activities…I didn’t have the proper shoes, clothes, hat, etc.  But, after a few little shopping endeavors I was all suited up for my day on the river 🙂  ok, well like 4 hours, but still.  So, hopped on a bus along with 40 other people and took a 10 minute drive to our drop off destination.  They gave us a quick safety lesson (basically, don’t be an idiot and listen to your guide).  We put on life vests, hauled the raft to the river, and away we went!

I must say…this was one of the most fun things I have ever done.  EVERY single rapid I would be laughing so hard I couldn’t barely paddle.  I immediately wanted to go again 🙂  Who knew I was such a thrill seeker 🙂
