    I have been on vacation this week and finally got everything caught up around the house......So I got some me time friday and hit the water with my paddlin buds.

    We camped at a state park and hit two nearby creeks
    The first creek took us about 7 hrs to run .we got back to camp just in time to set up camp before a thunderstorm came through.

    The last creek we ran is where I took most pics....It was about a 5 hour float and had 2 old mill sites and the old power building on it ....was real interesting to see all the old sites.
