Showing J a good time for my own benefit

Yippee! Procrastinating didn't sink my boat! Literally!

J starts camp in the mountains on Monday. I didn't want to drive all the hours there and back in one lump, so I thought of things to break up the trip coming and going.

I mostly thought of whitewater rafting - or at least the wussy version my chicken-hearted son might like - and camping.

We begin travel on Saturday and go out rafting on Sunday. The package includes camping and some meals, too, so we are set.

And it's my birthday weekend. I get to do something I've always wanted to do.

Now to decide if I want the freedom and fun of a duckie (a one or two person kayak) or the confines of the large raft, for which I'd have to paddle less. Ah, to have such dilemmas!

I love, love, love rafting...have great fun!

I've done both raft and ducky...

the ducky was lovely because my husband did all the paddling...I was sorta lame and messed things up...

So I got to just kick back...

but the raft is really fun too, i like paddling...even if I am lame...

You're rafting the New? It's so beautiful there.
