Cue the Banjos!

Guess where I'm going this weekend? On a FLOAT trip! I couldn't be more stoked. I haven't done one of these in probably 8 or 10 years, and they really are fun! Nothing like winding down a lazy river in the warm sunshine, in the middle of nowhere. The area we'll be floating in is definitely remote hillbilly country, though. Salt of the earth, y'know. This time we're floating in a raft vs. a canoe. It's got to be more comfortable than those hard, wicked canoe seats.

Also, and there really wasn't a choice, we decided to bring our daughter along. She's four, and we think she'll like it. (think, hope, pray, whatever...) She's used to being around water & loves to get wet. She MAY get bored though. What I perceive as "natural beauty" might just be a continuous patch of weeds to her. We'll try to make it fun. What she's most excited for is the CAMP OUT. Ever since we told her about it, she won't shut up about the camp out. What I envision with the campout is a giant lack of quality sleep. I have visions of popping a Tylenol PM around 9 pm or so every night. The only problem with that is if for some reasons I'm kept awake in spite of the Tylenol, I'll REALLY wish I were dead. I'm sure I'll catch a little nappy on the way home, regardless.

One of my girlfriends and I got a wild hair during a trip to Costco, and split the cost of a 10-person tent. So we're providing the condo for everyone! There are about 10 people total going, and we'll have six in our tent. Nice & cozy.

I'll report back on the trip if there's anything report-worthy, such as roving hill-people or giant river dwelling critters. Hmmmm, sometimes uneventful is good too....
