Float trips this year
Posted: 8/9/2012 6:54:47 AM
If i'm still on here, what a freakin joke, If you arn't tall dark and handsome and have a harley no one answers emails. Yet they **** cause these guys cheat on them, well DUH. This is the last year i'll be free, starting my business full time in Jan and will take all my free time. I'll be selling my kayaks in the spring since I no one wants to hit the water. I've floated twice this year.
oh well I'll keep my eye out, but usually when i get past august i'm hitting all the yard sales and flea markets to build up stock for the winter and probably won't be free.

I'd like to but that was way too much work for only 8 ppl to show up and then the drama afterward. I'll keep an eye out for rhonda's pig roast.

Just saw the therpist, i'm 70% which surprised her, should only be at 40% tops. So we're in just have to figure out funding now and make a call lol. I havnt call yet but last yr they charged an extra $10 for kayaks.

I'm having surgery this week on my shoulder but I'll make it, i'll be stiff and still sore . It was a blast. Not sure this yr but they did change a little extra for the kayaks, but their more stable then a canoe and you can get around alot better. My brother and i was just paddling from one raft to the other.
Go for the pot luck dinner friday nite, it was a great way for everyone to meet and get to know some folks before they hit the river. Last yrs food was great, the fire was warm and the people awesome.

They have that posted at the resorts, but not until august 28th. Then no jello shots, beer bongs, keggers, beads. But you can still get a ticket if you litter any of that stuff or nudity lol. But i think most of the rangers are gonna be down at the bull float this weekend. The river will be ours hahahahahaha

Anyone interested in a family friendly float?
Posted: 7/30/2009 5:09:30 AM
I spent an hour last nite writing up the event and sent it to the moderator for approval, but since i'm mean and have a negative attitude i'm gonna pass. I have it saved and if anyone is interested in taking the event over i can email the all the details.
thanks and you all have fun

Wow, where did that come from? Check the post again, i put midnite and i was having fun with it is all, i wasnt upset or mad, i knew you said ya was gonna be late. You and sam was trying to put up an old but very good shape tent. I just stepped up when you all got tired of messing with it lol. I stood back and was trying to figure how to set it up(the cross arms),I didnt think i was being negative about it. I would have given you my extra tent if 2funnyhaha didnt need it first and my brother offered for you to crash in the camper instead of your truck. We all was teasing about the how the truck was packed. I"m sorry if i had sounded mean it was not my intent, it was all in fun. I thought it was one of the best trips i've had in yrs.

I wrote the moderate and if its cool i'll post the event at washington state park for the 16th a sunday. Its has very limit rentals and usually all reservated the weekend before so you'd have to be quick to rent or bring something to float on. I've seen ppl in tubes float it but you dont have any place to put lunch or drinks. I float that section a cpl times a yr so i know it like the back of my hand.
But being limited cant guanitee alot ppl will go, worth a shot

No, they put in 6 miles up from hwy 67 and st francios state park. They offer a 6 mile and 2 mile float. This time a yr you'll drag alot doing the 6 miler and the 2 miler isnt worth the money in my opinion.

Looks like me and my brother are in, think i got it all worked out finally(i think) . He's off friday so we'll be bringing his camper and it wont be after dark this time lol. Sounds like its gonna be a party on the river and end up in the bar hehehehe. I dont want to miss this one for sure. A great way to end the summer with a BLAST.
ps i dont want to step on you toes rhonda(only time i'll mention this promise), but if anyone interested in a family float for the kids around the 9th or 16th, email me. Its not gonna be posted as an offical event, just if you want to do something with the kids before school.
sorry and thks rhonda

I called washington state park, their too small to set up for anything real big, they have like 8 canoes and a cpl rafts. You can look up their website just type in washington state park desoto mo, and see their price's.
If you pass it around by word of mouth(emails lol) instead of officially setting up an event, might be able to set something up the weekends of the 8th or 15th. I have my own kayaks so i dont have to rent. Its a 3 mile float and i've seen ppl on tubes or even small rafts and takes 3-5 hrs to float depending how much swimming you do.
Spread the word and see what we have

I wouldnt see why no kids, just remember ppl are gonna be drunk. But even on our adult float, i didnt see anyone naked and it was a party section of the river. This section is pretty mellon, it will be our group you have to watch.
Sin dont count me out yet, just a bunch of crap i have to deal with and lately i've been in a pretty deep funk and having a hard time getting out of. The empty nest syndrome and realizing i'm gonna grow old alone and i dont like cats hmmmmmm.
oh well

After 4 yrs i get the hint, I think its easier not to date then to keep getting disappointed.
BUT anyway if you want to do a day float, i could make a few calls and see what i can do. You can maybe post it as family friendly but not limited to. I'd ask the moderate too. Washington state park on Big river is a nice float, its a 3 or 6 mile float. Its in my neck of the woods and i know it like the back of my hand, you saw me working on my float trip i know what i'm doing lol.
But with the float on aug 21 coming soon, you might not get too many ppl OR you might get alot that want to do something with the kids before school starts. who knows

Not sure i can make it out that far the next cpl weekends, plus I'm broke so i couldn't afford to rent anything or camp. If your interested in something a little closer and doing a day trip, there's a new outfitter in eureka, don't know much about them, and Washington state park south of desoto but their limited on the number of rafts and canoes available. If you need any help on that holler. Sorry cant be anymore help but this summer has been pretty crappy and I'm deleting my profile after the float trip on the 21st,which i don't think i cant make either, i guess I'm fun but not datable.

Gonna have to pencil me in, dosnt look like i'm gonna be able to make it til at least saturday morning if i can go at all. I have to put my kid first, unlike my ex, his welfare is more important then my dating life. Probably why i've been single for pretty much 14yrs now, but he's the last of the 4 i raised, so i only have 3yrs left and i'm free lol.
Have fun and if anything changes i'll let ya know
