    I used to float down rivers all the time as a child in Honduras, and have always wanted to take my husband to try it. Where exactly did you park at the start? I’d love to get some friends together and go out there this summer. Thanks for any additional information you can send me 🙂

    Fun! I floated the river in San Antonio with my friends once. It was really crowded and mostly just about drinking, but it was fun, too.*

    I haven’t been tubing in years! We would always get a big group and just float and of course, drink. 🙂 That sounds like the perfect post race party to me!

    I used to float down the river in PA all the time, but a few years ago my friends and I did here in Florida at Ginny Springs. We used inflatable pools and had like 6 of us in each, great for the cooler too.

    Sounds like an awesome day! We used to float down the Ichetucknee river all the time in college (or as a few people called it- the “Itch Me Touch Me” river). We’d just tie our drinks to the back of the tubes and let them float through the water- the river was cold enough that they stayed pretty chilled! Ah… makes me long to live in Florida again 😉

    You need to put your drinks in a mesh bag and hang them from your raft into the water. The water keeps them cold enough, no cooler needed:)

    That looks like the perfect post race activity…so relaxing 🙂 We used to jump off this huge rock in Waimea Bay, and I would have those same thoughts as soon as I got up there…should I really do this?? And then after I jumped, I’d be the first one climbing the rock to do it again 🙂

    Ahh.. you the the 2 hour one I have never done. We always start at the KP Hole and do the 4 hour trip. If I am not mistaken you all could have done the 2 hour one again if you wanted.

    PLEASE tell me no one in your group complained!!! Every single time we go out the girls that are always eager to go start complaining in the first hour. ANNOYING!

      We were on a time limit, which is why we went the shorter route. 🙂 And no one complained – everyone had a blast! I think we just complained that it was over too soon, but some of the group had places they needed to be.

    Have you been to Blue Spring State Park? I went there when I was in Orlando for a bachelorette party. It’s amazing! And I heard that in the winter there are manatees. I would highly recommend it!

    Oh ya…. Derek’s my kind of guy. I would have had my tube hooked to his since he was packing the beer!! HA!! Try the Bud Light ~ Lime-A-Ritas ~ in your blender and add a lil ice ~ put them in margarita glasses ~ soooo good 🙂

    You were brave to jump of that rope! If I wore a strapless top, I’d be afraid I’d flash everyone!

    not to ask a stupid question, but how did you manage to bring beer and cans onto the river?
