Our adventure began in Maupin, OR, a huge mecca for rafting adventures. Its great to know river guides and people who own their own gear, so this weekend basically cost us about $40 each. Awesome I know!! We (after 2 hours) found a place to camp, and I was finally able to crack my first beer at 3pm on Friday. I was hoping for a noon-time starting, but it didn't happen, c'est la vie.
Saturday morning bright an early we got up and got geared up. We headed down to the launch site and then proceeded to wait and wait and wait, since there were a ton of other boats waiting to launch. But once we got going, it was amazing!! Mr. Man and I were in a boat with my friend's brother T*, joined by two other boats, 11 people in all.
