We took the kids at our church on a 5 mile canoe trip down a section of the Flint River. They had a blast. The adults however .............. What we failed to research in advance was that due to the drought at that time, the water levels were extremely low. The lightweight youth happily floated down the shallow river. The heavier adults repeatedly hit bottom. We had to get out of our boats and carry them for over half of the trip. We turned over, got soaked, and totally worn out. We all complained, but looking back, it was really funny. There is one lady in the church that has never been seen in public without her hair and makeup fixed to perfection. Her husband managed to turn their boat over and she got soaked!
That has been almost 10 years and the church is still talks about it sometimes. They long since forgiven the DH and now they all say they loved it.
