Sore butts, bruised egos

Click here for photos, there is a good sequence of Oak Springs. When you get to the page, click next for about 5 photos or so.

Here's Boxcar, a pathetic run at it I might add. As you can see, I was quickily ejected from the boat. Once to the page, we are the next 6 photos.

And Finally Wapinitia, this seems to be the only one we didn't loose someone on. LOL. 3 photos here.


So it was that time again, me birthday. It has become a bit of tradition to go rafting on this day for the last few years and this one was no exception. This year we decided it would be cool to ride our motorcycles over there, that was pretty fun. Other than a sore butt after a couple hours, the ride was fantastic. We got there without incident and man was it hot. Some drinking was done, no wait, a lot of drinking was done.
On Saturday, the Army Corp needed to drop the water level to what was a never before seen low (according to the OSP officer I was talking to) in order to try and retrieve the body of a poor soul that had been pinned against a rock for more than a week up in white horse. Due to that low water, the raft trip was interesting to say the least. Lots of rocks that are not normally exposed, and some that are normally exposed were twice as big.
When the company gets the photos on the web, I will post a link. Stand by for those, they should be good.

All and all, good times with good friends.

Too bad your bike is blocking that awesome Fatboy next to it! :)

Looks like a nice ride...too bad about the guy in White Horse.

Good on ya for riding your chop that far, Bro! Most guys I know are bar to bar at best.

Those stock fatboys are little boring. I poured all over that thing this weekend, checking it out. Not that great!
