An outdoor adventure

Guys, I'm so excited!  This weekend, we're joining three other couples for a camping and whitewater rafting adventure in wild and wonderful West Virginia.   (You might remember that whitewater rafting is one of my Mondo Beyondo dreams!)

I
have not been camping in a loooong time, but I'm so excited to re-live some of my favorite childhood memories of relaxing around a campfire, toasting marshmallows for s'mores, and immersing myself in the peace and beauty of the natural world.  I've got a cooler filled with veggie burgers, copious amounts of bug spray, several rolls of toilet paper, and enough Larabars to feed a small army.

T
he river above, by the way, is the New River, where we'll be rafting.  Isn't it gorgeous?

H
ave any of you been whitewater rafting?  Got any stories or tips to share?

I rafted in Colorado when I was in high school, and it was such a fun experience. We were on level 4 rapids, so there were a few pretty intense parts. My whole body was sore afterwards from paddling, maneuvering, and trying to stay steady. I managed not to fall in the water until the VERY end when we were pulling our raft up onto the shore-- my foot got caught under the bulky raft and down I went! I'd love to raft again someday :) Hope you have fun!
