Part II of Rafting!

Saturday, down at the New River Gorge, we climbed at Summersville Lake!

(Watch out, we know Karate!)

It has such a great distribution of climbs in all ranges of difficulty that everyone was able to climb what they wanted.

That night, to have another successful bonfire, we ordered out pizza from Pies and Pints. It worked out great!

Another Left Hand Milk Stout, can I go anywhere without it??

Split another big bottle of Rogue Chocolate Stout. Sebbie, the woman on the bottle, rocks!! Woot!

Yay, smores!

And of course, another Young’s Double Chocolate Stout. I am so predictable.

We all turned in kinda early since we had to wake up at 5:30am to go rafting the next day! I was super nervous because when we woke up it was freezing! I couldn’t imagine getting in the water!

I even opted to wear the wetsuit, I was scared of the 61 degree water and 45 degree air temperature!

We had a blast! The rapids were awesome! I think we paddled a little too well and nobody really fell out. In the morning the air temps were so cold that the water actually felt warm in comparison, but it was the opposite in the afternoon and I started to freeze. I can’t believe how fast the day went on the water! Six hours later, and we were done. Successful rafting trip!

I was beat. Jack and I took turns passing out on the 5 hour ride home. It felt so good to get a hot shower and pass out.
