mornin all. sorry or my lack of presence this week.
i had the camping trip thursday through monday, spent most of monday sleeping. spent tuesday unpacking and setting up all the tents again in the backyard, as it rained the last day whilewe were packing up. so now the tents need to be cleaned and aired out. then i spent most of wednesday going out to a few different job interviews. i even interupted my camping trip on friday to come back home for a job interview as well. (500 mi round trip i migt add) so, of course i made the trip twice
the trip went very well. everyone had a great time. at one point there were about 12 people with thier tubes tied together while floating downstream, they went over some rapids, and asia's tubewent straight up in the air, and she went straight down in the water
i kayaked the whole time, more fun than tubes. but i did have to keep paddling back up stream to go back to the tubers. it's a 7 mile trip. takes 2 hours by kayak, and almost 5 hours by tube. but of course, because there were so many of us in my group, we managed to make it last 6 hours
and i'll tell ya, we were ALL ready to get off that river by the end of the day lol.
two years ago i finally broke down and started taking a few anemities with me, like toaster and alarm clock. it was only about 5 years ago that i even started taking a tent. well, this year my family went overbaord, waaaay overboard. they took.. two taosters, two coffee machines. two microwaves, a tv, vcr, dvd player, stereo, electric skillets, 4 george forman grills, a juicemaker, a food processor, and two mini fridges
i was in shock!! but, i have to admit, it was kinda nice
i took asia horseback riding for her first time, she loved it, we were riding on an lassapso, apaloopsa, well, whatever it's called, thats what we were on, it was brown and white splotches
took her fishing, as much as i hate it, she caught 5 fish, 3 were small, but one was about 12" bass. i had to help her bring it in. we let them all go. i caught nothing
then we went go carting, and my family was the only one on the track, so they gave us a little leeway since the boss wasnt around, and we played a bit of crash up derby
went swimming, went hiking up to see the gorge and the two waterfalls in the area. only rained the last morning while packing up.
overall it was a great trip. we had 8 campsites in a row, 30 adults, and 16 kids ended up showing up.
anyway i'm back home now, with a fully tanned skull and doing the job search thing every day, hoping to get somethign soon. only have finances to last about 6 weks, so i should be cool.
havea great day everyone!
