I met up with James a few hours later to get ready for the canoe trip- he came and picked me up at the apartment; we hung out with my landlord and had some drinks.. (I’m sure you can see where this is going already) Finally we made it to the house after a bunch of last minute errands, made some food and finished packing stuff up before heading to bed.
More jello shots and drinks were had during the day and I was pretty buzzed out.. not gonna even try to lie about it. It was an awesome day- and my only complaint was the amount of mosquitos that were eating my face.. well every part of my body.. but I seriously got at least 10 bites on my face.. Ugh.. pretty gross.
We stopped floating down river around 5:30 and set up camp on a beachy shoreline- and started a massive fire. Drunk people are funny… Just saying.
Woke up around 6:30 and cleaned up some of the aftermath of the previous night- restarted the first from coals and made some breakfast, before breaking camp and repacking the canoes. By the way.. there were more jello shots first thing.. like before breakfast. More drinks and floating happened and eventually we made it back- packed up our shit and drove to get some dinner before heading back home.
It was so much fun! 19 miles floating down river.. uncounted jello shots and drinks and laughs.. Great way to end the summer!
