    Does this mean you aren't going to be making any civ 3 moves today?

    :mad:

    Just kidding. I bet that would be fun. Just don't get wrapped around a tree at flood stage.

    It was fun, until about a mile before the truck when we hit a tree and flipped the boat.

    There were four of us, I was in the front. When the front of the boat hit the tree, the back of the boat buckled under and I was tossed out into the freezing cold river.

    We all went flying, the river was roaring. I tried to grab a tree, but then realized that was stupid and floated down until I could swim to shore.

    Luckily no one was hurt.

    Crazy man, crazy.

    Freaking life jacket, saved my ass.

    I had a Cards Jacket I got for Christmas.

    It is probably at Fort McDowell by now. Long gone when the boat flipped.

    We had some good pics, but my buddy lost his digital camera when the boat flipped over.

    I am as sore as I have been in years. We never had to paddle either cause the river just took us down the river.

    When I went into the river I felt like I was in a washing machine for about 5 seconds and then popped up 30 yards from the boat. Crazy thing was my buddy Mike, popped up at the same time in the same spot.

    Then I tried to grab the tree. Let go, and realized my pants were at my ankles.

    We got out and then my brother starts yelling that the boat was coming down towards us.

    Me and Mike, (who had just told me his finger was broken), dove straight back into the river to save the boat.

    My shins are smashed and I feel like I have pnemonia.

    When good trips go bad.

    You and the other guys will have some great stories to tell on your next trip. These kinds of things bring back the best memories and laughs during the next camping trip.
