I was fortunate to be invited on a river trip earlier this month. I was invited for an overnight river trip on the racoon river. There were 5 of us on this trip.
We got all of our geared loaded up and we set out for the put in location. The put in location was highly congested with many people preparing for a party down the river. It was a little nerve-racking trying to get all of our stuff into the canoes and kayaks and into the water with so many people around trying to get their tubes, beer and music launched down the river.
