DPT Summer Trip


From the idiots who helped* plan "Key West 2008," "Key West 2009" and "Savannah 2010"... we bring you...

WHITEWATER RAFTING 2011!!!




We're driving up to Tennessee for Labor Day weekend, renting cabins and spending one day on a raft. Many of the details are still being worked out, but put this trip on your calendar. Tentative plans are:

Drive up Friday, September 2nd. It's about 8hrs drive.

Whitewater rafting down the Ocoee River on Saturday (all day).

Sunday, we'll do whatever activities we can find in the area (hunting squirrels?).

Monday, return to Tampa.

**UPDATE**

The cabin has been booked! As of right now it will cost $100 per person for the entire weekend...that price could go down if more people decide to join us. Features include: room for 18 people, hot tub overlooking the river, indoor swimming pool, grill and smoker, game room, hiking trails, and three canoes we can use. The cabin is located in Ellijay Ga. about 15 miles from where we will be rafting.

Either way, this trip will be a nice change from our normal "stumble around some city wasted" outings. As in - "stumble around the mountain woodlands wasted."


*the term "helped" is used very liberally

Over/Under on people drowning?

8 hours to Tennessee? Doesn't it take longer than that?

Chandler said...

8-10 depending on how you drive and how many pee breaks.

Sounds awesome!

I like to pee. Might take me 11 to get there.

Karen and I rented a cabin in Elijay last fall. It is only about 8 1/2 hours from Tampa if you drive like a normal human being (about 15 miles over the speed limit). Sounds like a kick ass cabin. Have fun.

Will it be you, Mike?

You should see pictures of the cabin. It's badass. Also, the whole trip should cost like $250 or something. Much cheaper than our previous summer excursions.
