Kayaking

Friday, September 7, 2012

So . . . if you don't hear from me on Monday, please just assume that I died. Or don't. Gah!

Tony and I are going kayaking tomorrow. It all started out with a Groupon email for a "leisurely 6 hour paddle," unfortunately after purchasing I was brusquely made aware that the trip was not for beginners! Just before the woman hung up the phone on me after taking our reservation.

Now, while Tony has kayaked before, I never have.

At least once a week since setting it up in June, as Tony's birthday present, I've thought about her not for beginners message and the 50-60 class 1-2 rapids.

I've voiced my concerns to Tony and even made mention to a few of our friends to see if anyone would want to take my place with Tony for the day . . . but Tony is certain that I'll "be just fine."

Eeek.

If you can't tell, I'm not exactly filled with that same certainty!

I'm looking forward to spending a good amount of the day with Tony, enjoying nature, but I really hope the drinks at the end of the road, which were included in the Groupon, are worth it!

Was it the groupon for the kayak trip in River Falls, WI through Kinni Creek Outfitters? If so, it's not so bad, you'll be fine!

We went for the first time in July. Just don't make any quick or sudden moves! Ha! You'll be great.
We loved it.

HA! I'm sure you'll survive, but I bet you come back with some good stories. :) Enjoy!

I have to admit, I laughed out loud at the "class 1 and 2 rapids" part. When I used to work at the rafting company, we used to call the stretch of our river that was like that the "booze cruise".

I'm sure you guys had a blast and it wasn't as bad as you thought!
