Wow! More fun than I could have expected! The food, the water, the people, the camp fires, etc were all better than one could hope for!

Thank you to the 2 people that fixed the top of my bathing suit.... It chose a very good time to break, if there could be such a thing. Well, some of the guys thing anytime a clasp on a bathing suit breaks is good! The fix held up for the remainder of the float and as far as I can tell it is still together. I think I will wash it and sew it in place. I will be ready for next time. I will also make sure I do not have a plastic hook as the only thing that holds it together. I may just sew all of them in place!

Now, to find the thread about things fishies say.... Debi was collecting them, let us see if she can remember them now!

Great potluck we had; nice to meet newbies and see the regulars as well!!

Was so tired after the float, we crashed early Saturday night 9:30 for both of us, I even came home today and took a 2 hr nap, I feel like I have my 2nd wind!!

What a great time! This was my first POF event and I had a blast! So the story goes ....... To start with I didn't have a canoe partner, not that I wouldn't go solo .. I asked Rhonda if there was someone who wanted/needed a partner and she introduced me to John and Oreo. So ..... off we go and low and behold John and I are from the same town! What a small world~! We get started - talking - laughing - checking out the all the fine gals and decided we were going to figure out who the hottest gal on the float was ..... from gravel bar to gravel bar we checked them all out. Then we lost track of the raft with our "choice" onboard. And the story continues ...........

Oreo was a total blast to have on the boat ... not to mention the gallon of "lemonade" and impromtu plastic bottle of Tequila Rose. I think Oreo did more paddling than John did for the 7 mile journey back to safe haven, as long as we could keep Oreo him jumping in other rafts while the lemonade and "Rose" was passed back and forth from raft to raft. As we meandered the winding river, skipping rocks and enjoying all the fine people out having the time of their lives; we told jokes, rammed a few rafts, canoes and other debris (rocks, trees, etc.) John and Sheila walked the river with Oreo paddling away ... then we caught up with the "raft". John pulls out the "Rose" and the Merrimac "hottie" decides to give the ole Rose a try ... we end up on the next gravel bar ... waiting for the rest of the flotilla to catch up. John was having so much fun he chose to tell her "she was the one" we thought was the Meramec hottie! And I thought that was a guy thing between John and I. John, the gals on the raft know who ........ ( Check out the gal in the purple hat!)

So, on down the river we go and there is Bryon waving away, yelling GO RIGHT - GO RIGHT .. I couldn't hear him and I thought - from a distance - he was fishing .. not so. We made it down to Bryon and pulled over on the gravel bar. We stayed there forever it seems watching rafts and canoes get jammed in obstuction on the bend ... we laughed and laughed~~~!!!! I'm glad no one got really messed up there. Not far to go we made it back to Indian Springs. John, Oreo and I said our goodbyes and that was the last I saw of him .. Time to wash up and go to a pig pickin!

Headed up to the luau ... and low and behold there was "Sweet Meat" the KSHE pig all laid out on the serving line .... good thing someone put sunglasses on him ... then you didn't have to look him in the eye before you ate him! Great job on wonderful dinner! And thanks Bryon for grabbing the dull knife and finishing the pig off so everyone could have seconds ... thirds .... well you know.

Thank you so much!! .... to those that made this weekend a total success!!! I am happy to have met such a fine group of folks and certainly plan to join your adventures in the future! Hope everyone had a safe and pleasant journey home!

I thought you guys like the cold water..... Someone was using the water cannon because the water was cold! Once you get in the water it was awesome, crystal clear too! So if a guy uses a water cannon to test the effects of cold water on a woman, isn't it only fair to check the cold water effects on that same guy? Talk about a man running, not walking on water.... Paybacks dude!!!!

p.s. Thanks to St Louis Computing for my sun shade for the float! (Hat)

I think I was OUT of the raft at least as much as I was IN the raft, I am not a swimmer.... I even rescued several jello shots! The water was too crisp to miss out!

Hey Saint T,

If you do a search you can download a free batch picture resizer so you can resize your pics in groups instead of one at a time!

I've not tried any of them out yet, but I did download a few to try a while back when I was doing pics for one of the parties.

He said it was Kirk with a K as in Star Trek.... He was a great captain! He did keep his shirt on though... I find it odd, 2 of the guys that wanted sunscreen on their backs had the shirts on afterward.... Surely that is not the only way you guys can get a back rub! The sunscreen apparently worked for Lance, no burn!

Thanks Captain Kirk!

Also a thanks to Joni and Debi for being such great outdoor girls, Debi thanks for letting me share your tent!

Oreo's dad... thanks for the alarm in the wee hours Saturday morning, thanks for bringing Oreo, awesome pet! Thanks for the Lemonade on the float! I didn't even drink 1/4 of the Lynchburg Lemonade I brought! Small world Oreo's dad, we went to the same High School within a year of each other!

This weekend was incredibly awesome, don't know if it could be topped! Everyone was exceptionally wonderful, thoughtful, kind, fun, etc!

WOOO WHOO... what a trip. ... And FINAL only 30 minutes from home WOOO WHOO .. It was so nice getting to tell everyone "Have a Safe Trip Home" instead of them telling me that :D :D.

I really did enjoy myself and gosh darn it .. it reminded me of how much I miss camping , floating. (Anyone up to do it again before the summer is over drop me a line...psst girl or guys.. just don't like doing things by myself).I could have used a little less drama on my raft but after I said who care and threw my hands to the air and water (literally) it was FUN rafting from then on :D. OHHH special thanks to Tara and Dana you too helped bring me out of my slump.. hehe.. and as I said before " I can't believe I fell out of the boat and I wasn't even drinking

Then I always LOVE meeting new people and that I did. From the people from Kentucky to those that lived all over the state of Missouri :D. And to be told by many that OUR group is soo friendly and fun. What a compliment and to think I am a part of it. :D

Well hope to see you all again and any time you want to come back to "MY neck of the woods" just holler at me :D :D :D

adding a note to say Jerry found his flashlight from Friday night, musta tossed it in the bed of his truck instead of the lock box like he thought. Thanks to those who helped us locate it, even though it wasn't left behind!

Annie, hope you can get back to your car alright..those keys will turn up eventually.

I think he was recovered from the women in the bathroom while he was showering before he headed for home. I don't think he had any more alcohol though.... The other guys were hopin I would show up wanting to use their shower too.... Craig, would you have driven home at that point? LOL... I took the 50 cent cold, timed shower instead. Since there was no place to hang my stuff or a dry place to dress, I dressed from the waist up and wrapped the rest of me in a towel, walked back to the camp site, got in my sleeping bag and took a nice little nap. Sorry Bob that I ignored you, but I doubt you will even remember trying to talk to me...
I think the lemonade had taken over!

Okay Rhonda... I have a few pics.....
