    Two weeks ago I went white water rafting with some buddies on the North Fork of the American River.

    Water was SUPER FREEZING cold and the rapids were a "class 4+++"! Here is a pic of me getting nailed in the face (left of the pic):

    ... and the river swallowing us whole:

    My most favorite job was working at WildWater in LongCreek, South Carolina. I sold T-shirts and such, and checked in our guests for the day. I had to lock away keys and other personal items, and I always joked about getting the car if the owner didn't come back from the trip.

    Looks like a blast to me. I've always wanted to get out there and do something adventurous, but recently, more than ever, I have been stuck to my computer screen working [​IMG]
