Today is the day of my white water rafting adventure with Matt & Monique, John & Erin, Marla & Greg, Heather, Rick, and the other Gilli1; Rob & Marina. This is if you recall, item #202 on my Not-So-Bucket-List list.
Rafting! Are you crazy? you query, knowing full well that I just had surgery 2 weeks ago to fix my hernia.
And of course, the answer is Yes. Yes I am crazy.
But I’m not that crazy. While I did make the trip to Ottawa to hang out with this collection of misfits, I have opted to sit out on the actual rafting fun. Instead, Erin and I are going to wander around Parliament, check out the market, pretend to be tourists, and basically enjoy the day.
While I’m disappointed that I won’t be able to cross this item off of my list, I am happy to say that since I flew here last night, I can update item #195 (travel once per month for a year). For those counting, I’m sitting at 8 travel destinations requiring a flight in 8 months. My list thus far includes Hawaii, New York, Ottawa, Calgary, Ottawa, Nova Scotia, Chicago, and Ottawa again. Two thirds of the way to my goal. W00t!
Anyway, we’re off to the market. Happy Saturday all y’all.
1 Where Gilli is of course the plural of Gillis.
