    Leash, thanks for putting all this together. I know it wasn't the easiest thing to do, but you are amazing and I for one, am looking forward to this mini vacation... :D

    Hey, do we know which run we're floating yet? I may have overlooked that; if not, I generally recommend a 'shorter' run for a group. If you get out and play, you're still pooped when you're done.
    I think I'll do my own thing for food, although I might be willing to barter when I get there ;).
    What times of day are people showing up?
    Have people reserved their watercrafts of choice yet (I haven't. Good Lord, I can be a slacker. By the way, any job openings where you are?)?

    Amy, That would make sense. I will let her call her Julesy then. I thought it was so cute and that is a cute name. I just didn't want her calling her by the wrong name. Just has recently taken to calling me and Jeremy by our first names. It's funny coming from a 3 yr old.

    Christine,
    I am very excited about this weekend and it was my pleasure to put it together. I apologize to everyone for my obsessive, anxious actions/posts re: the trip. I get like that cause I just want everyone to really enjoy the trip. I'm the frantic hostess at parties too. LOL!

    -E-,
    Girl if I can squeeze my fat butt into a swimsuit and strut around without a care you can too. You are tiny and should be proud of your cute body. JMHO.
    We have not decided on runs yet and I don't think anyone has reserved canoes yet either. We can work that out on Sat. We won't have any problem getting canoes there.
    Christine and I will be there on Friday night, I think Amy and John said they were coming down on Sat.

    Tim's making me wait until he gets off of work Sat. (2:00) so we probably won't even get there until 3:30 or 4:00. Maybe earlier...I drive fast.

    John, No you didn't miss anything. I guess it would depend on when everyone got to the campsite.

    Amy did your or Tim want to float?

    We won't be floating...on a raft anyway. I just plan to dip myself in the river by the campsite most of the time.

    Are you coming too, Medic?

    This could turn into a very lively party even with the low numbers!

    John,
    Before 10am or so. That will give everyone plenty of time to do the short run and even enough for the longer run if you don't stop alot.

    Tim just informed me that he works until 3:00, not 2:00. *$&@ Oh well, as long as we get there before dark.

    Ok, for anyone who will be showing up tomorrow : I'll be coming in around dinnertime, I *think*. I won't be able to make a float; however, I'll bring some swimfins, a miniraft, and masks for the kids/ parents who want to play some in the water (I think. I gotta make sure the step brother didn't make a haul of this stuff.). Hopefully, I'll see some people I recongnize tomorrow!

Thanks again Christine for taking me to Sam's and carrying the food down. We hung out in the river til about 4pm, then came home and crashed. It was alot of fun thanks again to everyone who came down for making the weekend so much fun!

    I'm still not caught up on sleep. I couldn't get back to sleep after Tim puked outside the tent and then I could hear racoons over there eating his puke or something. [face_sick]

    I'm tired to and feel kind of yucky. I didn't go to work tonight and I laying in bed reading and wishing I could eat something. Ugh! I came down to get some water and thought I would check the boards.

    Raccoons and puke, ugh! The vodka and not sleeping the night before, knocked me out. Thankfully I did not hear the raccoons. I hope Tim feels better. I get migraines too, it would suck to have had one out camping.
