Who knew white water rafting would be such a blast!!
All you need is a nice HOT day, coolers full of beverages, snacks, sunscreen, water cannons, good friends and...oh yeah!... a raft!!
Got up there late morning. Applied our sunscreen (some of us needed more than others!!). Had a couple of drinks, launched off and we were set. Just sat back and relaxed, we just flowed with the river. But watch out!! There are water wars and don't expect that MAC make-up to stay on because they are not friendly wars. People build their own water cannons (that are made out of pvc and are 5 feet long!!), bring out buckets and some of them even try to jump on your boat to attack. No one was succesful at taking over our raft. Our raft had mad women with cannons and mad paddling men!! No one ever came close to touching our raft. We throw 'em a beer for trying though. : )
There are a few fun stops along the way. You can jump off the edge into the river, swing on a rope and even watch some mud wrestling. But my favorite stop was when we stopped and sat on the rocks as the river ran through it. So relaxing.
I do have one complaint. That bus ride back to the beginning SUCKS ASS!! It's long, HOT and full of dark, stinky, drunk people. YUCK!!
Next time, more people, more alcohol and better cannons!!
