Thinking about river tripping

One of my favorite hobbies is river rafting, as you might guess from the various photos that I've put up. I'm planning a trip for late spring on the lower Grand Canyon, often referred to as "Diamond Down". Diamond Creek is one of the very few launch sites available on the canyon, and it is relatively easy to get a permit. The trip goes through some real nice rapids and ends at Lake Mead.

Today, I'm daydreaming about launch day. Rather that than another work Munday. The photo is from my trip launch last spring. My boat is the big old ugly orange one in front, which I call "The Great Pumpkin". Oh well, only a few months to wait.

How will I pass the time?
