1. Lay in tube
2. Allow current to push tube down river
3. Avoid debris or large outcroppings of rocks in river by remaining conscious and giving a crap
|This isn't really us. We're too dumb to remember our camera.|
|What'd you say???|
|This seems comfy!|
Minute 45: Mom manages to pick up the pace but when she floats past us, we notice that she has one leg out of her tube and one leg in the water. "I'm stuck!", she yells at us, as if we're gonna do anything more than laugh and point. I tell her to push up using her arms and pull her leg out of the water. She manages to push herself up but instead of pulling her stuck leg up, she somehow gets her leg that's out of the water INTO the water and now all we see coming out of her inner tube are her little hands holding onto the side and her wicked witch of the west voice calling out "I'm slipping!!!".
At this point we are all glad we are already in the water otherwise it would make peeing ourselves pretty embarrassing. Her little midget legs are kicking uselessly in the 3 foot deep water and she's convinced she's going to drown but somehow, god willing, she manages to find the strength to hold on long enough to get to 6 inches of water so that she can stand up and back up into her tube and resume her stranded tortoise position. We all breathe a sigh of relief.
|Me? Not blind. Next!|
