Lazy River Innertubing, Sat 9/29, Bakersfield
Let's do some lazy river innertubing! The best way to spend a hot day is soaking in a cool river. This adventure is all about having fun so think of everyone as a new friend! Folks on this meetup will be everyone from kids to late 60's. The meetup starts at 1pm. I recommend arriving by 12:30pm. After some things at the beginning (e.g. waivers, safety talk, maybe some ice breaker games), we'll get in the water and begin our lazy river float. We'll have a small cooler. After 1.5 - 2 hours we'll pull over and have a late lunch: Subway sandwiches, chips, & bottled water (included). Then we'll get back in the water and float for another 45 - 60 min to reach the finish. My best guess is we'll end between 5pm & 6pm depending on river speed and how long we take for lunch. Optional: dinner afterward at Rusty's Pizza. Everyone must: A) know how to swim; B) wear shoes that won't fall off - no sandals, crocs, or bare feet permitted; and C) wear a life jacket. Message me to bring kids. No alcohol or glass on the river. ----YOU MUST BE ABLE TO SWIM---- You must be able to swim to attend - no exceptions. This means you can swim the length of a pool in the freestyle stroke or back/side/breast stroke. Doggy paddling does not count.
