Today was a nice and relaxing day. I woke up and played with the kids a bit. I ran out to get a quick haircut. I am tempted to buzz it all just to make things easier. I might on a really hot day. Alisa, the kids and I jumped in the car and made a trip out to REI. I needed new sandles as the ones I have had forever, broke. I did not have any luck finding the ones I wanted, but it was nice to get out to see the area. On the way back home, we stopped by the St Anthony’s Lock to get some more information. I got to see how the lock sysyem works. I got to give the youngest one a big piggy back ride back. It is the little things that make me smile.
Once I got back home, I spent my time organizing photos and updating my social media outlets. Jeff made burgers for dinner and it was a chill evening. The neighbors were having a little get together. Alisa invited me over to chill and socialize. I was told of the river conditions. There were a few adventure hounds that encouraged me on the journey. I got back in and packed up and organized my gear. I understand the volume of the current water levels and it is not making me too comfortable. I am still going forward. It will be an interesting day!!
