River tubin'

  • Jun 7, 2014 · 1:00 PM
  • Tim's Place

DESC There's an awesome river right next to my place. It has 2 mini-dams that you can jump. I did it twice so you know it's legit. :) The other parts of the river is pretty relaxing so you get a nice mix.

LOGISTICS Near my house about a 50 yards walk to the river. There's a running trail to walk back to my house where you can shower/clean up if you want to. Takes about 45 minutes to tube from my house down to constitution park.

COSTS I saw a tube for $6 at walmart. Old shoes to get wet in. River is free!

Welcome to summer!!!

See what to bring >>>

      No, thankfully or I would have been freaking. As it is, I'm trying not to think about it too much!

    Sun is coming up, weather is high of 82, water level is lower but still tubeable. Also bring a towel if you want to rinse off after.

    This was going to be one of my ideas for the event planning meeting.

    It's fun and kind of relaxing and a good way to cool off if its hot. Tow a cooler with lunch and (canned!) beer and its a great day.

      Well I live right near the river so we could take a expedition whenever you're free. I'd be thrilled to have an excuse. ;) I scheduled this for the majority but it IS a repeatable and flexible event.

    • Derek M.

      Thats cool. I hope you guys have fun this time around!

    I am going to try this. End of the school year makes things hard to commit.

    I can't make this one, due to Mario Kart event at same time, but I am interested in future tubing events.
