So this weekend was pretty much awesome, started out with just the idea of going kayaking and biking Saturday, but that changed when Dionne said that we should go camping Friday night at some legit spot that not many people go to. So all day Friday I was taking orders from her and packing and packing and packing and searching and searching and searching for things... She really likes to plan these camping trips, luckily my uncle had nearly everything she was listing out, which would have cost a small fortune if we had to go and buy all of it.
Anyways, she arrives here at my uncles (where im at for the summer) and we head off to Albertsons to get some "Instant Pancake Mix", (Apparently you just add water, which is legit.) Since she wanted to make pancakes in the morning. I, on the other hand, found some small pizzas in our freezer and figured I would try and cook them for dinner over the fire which worked out amazingly if I do say so myself.
Anyways, before all that, when we arrived we setup the tent and immediately went swimming, something we both agreed we wanted to do. The lake itself actually was not very cold, though it still took me a few seconds longer to jump in (I was being a vagina about the cold water) but after I jumped in I got used to it fairly quickly.
So we swam around for a bit looking at some small cavern things whilst crashing my knee/feet into hidden boulders. (this reminds me, Dionne is creeped out by rocks under water.. lol)
Anyways, fast forward about 20 mins and I decided to take some pictures of the area before it got to dark to do so, I also got some good pictures of the sunset along with us showing off our completely ripped biceps. those pictures looked much cooler on my camera screen since we were completely blacked out.
Just before we went swimming.
The surrounding area.
Camera was out of focus when I took this, couldnt tell on its screen. but the fullsize picture is terrible.
And then of course, here are two pictures of us looking absolutely ridiculous. Like I said, they looked so much cooler on my cameras screen when out bodies were completely blacked out. Don't laugh to hard. I think Dionne looks way more hilarious than I do hahaha.
So after that we built a fire and sat around it for a few hours and just talked. I also tried Bud Light for the first time, that shit taste like shit, didnt even drink half of a bottle. Apparently its an acquired taste that takes about a year to grow on you... Not sure I could keep drinking it for a year.. I think I look way cooler than I actually am holding that beer... as you can see below.
And because I have been writing this for the last hour and going into way to much unneeded detail I think will just fast forward this last bit.
After sitting around the fire we went to sleep, woke up, packed up, came back into town, unpacked, re-packed, grabbed the kayaks/bikes, drove out to the bike drop off point (as indicated in the map i made in my previous post), took a quick picture to compare how burnt we get after we finish this course.
Take note of how we are not sunburned at all in this picture.
We then drove up to the 1st dredge, unloaded the kayaks, Dionne complained about them smelling like rain water for a minute, and the cast off on our 7.25 mile kayak trip.
We then kayaked (like bosses, people be jealous and starring) through the 1st, and 2nd dredge and then pulled a mad double kayak 360 snapping a shot of us and the bridge in the background.
It was so damned windy at this point that my hair completely curled up and blown back making me look all funny throughout the rest of the trip.
fuck that wind.. that wind was completely trolling us the entire way I swear to god. If I could punch wind in the vagina, I would.
Anyways, we then way later on went through some extremely super intense rapids.. Do you see those white caps!?
We finished the kayaking part in probably around 3 hours. From which, we parked the kayaks and jumped on the bikes.
Then took our 7.45 mile bike trip all the way back to the 1st dredge, this took us about an hour, much faster than the kayaks with basically the same distance.
Once we got back, we packed up the bikes and took the one last picture to compare how burnt we got compared to when we started. (refer to the picture of us at the bike drop point)
In this I may look burnt, but I actually did not get any sunburns. However, Dionne did. hahahaha...
With that, ends an amazingly fun weekend along with a really awesome kayak/bike trip where, apparently to Dionne, we burned like a million calories.
Man.. blog posts are intense. took an hour to write this. I think I need to hire somebody to write these for me... or atleast do some of the work... I mean, damn...
