Today begins the stress. The day before a major river trip everything has to come together. 30 meals for 16 people, all gear inspected, and everything has to be broken down and packed into 4 canoes and 8 kayaks. I love it!
The best feeling is when your boat enters the current of the river and you become released from the stress. If you forgot something, no big deal, there is nothing that can be done.
I pick everyone up at 1pm. Friday at the SLC airport. Then we drive the 3.5 hours to Moab. Then one last huge dinner before putting on the river. The boys are very excited, mostly about smores and sleeping in their tent riverside.
