White Water Rafting
So last weekend I went with 5 other friends white water rafting! I mean, it was only in Minnesota but none the less, it was a blast. We woke up early Sunday morning to drive 2 hours North to Cloquet, MN. We were all able to go in 1 raft, we listened to rules/what to do, ect and got into the water! It was a lot of work but oh so much fun. On our first rapid we went down it and I noticed that I kept paddling but was not going anywhere, I looked back and only 1 other person was in the raft! We lost 4 people including the 2 boys who were steering. We didn't have instructors in our boat so they ended up having to kayak over to our boat and help us to pick up everyone in our raft. To get our friends, you have to put your knees on the side and your arms under their arms in their armpits. Well to pull them in they basically are laying on top of you. So because there were 2 of us in the boat we went to pick up the 2 people. Jenna got Steve and I got Steve's girlfriend Kate. All people saw was Steve laying on Jenna and Kate laying on top of me. It was funny! After that little incident we were awesome. I would say the best raft and we worked together and the day was a blast!!!
