Tubing on the James
We put together a last minute trip to the river last Saturday. Everything fell together and we were unloading the bus at Pony Pastures in no time. The water was cool and refreshing, the sun warm and bright. Our group consisted of five members: Jane, James, Adrian, Gabe, and myself. Our cooler was full to the brim when we hit the water, but nearly empty as we approached the nickel bridge. At the same time I spotted some kids playing in the water nearby and decided to paddle over to see what they were like. The rest of my group swam over and we all became acquainted in no time. Our new friends shared some box wine with us and solidified themselves as tight bro's. The rest of the trip was spent on the rocks and in the rapids as we finished every last drop of booze together. We followed our new pals out to the road and they drove me to the bus afterwards. They has actually noticed the SWEET-bus earlier that day and were stoked to receive lifetime invites to all of our trips. The day was a complete blast!
