Well, the dry season is upon us, so blog posts are becoming few and far between. Thankfully, there's some fun stuff coming up in the next couple weeks (diving, Wausau trips, a mud volleyball tournament), so hopefully things will liven up a bit on this site. To kick off the fun times, there were two noteworthy events this weekend.
First, there was a great party last night that was hosted wonderfully by Brie. It was for several occasions, all centered around Meaghan: her upcoming birthday, her engagement to Nick, and to send the two of them off to their new home in Massachusetts. Congrats to Meaghan (and Nick) - can't wait to come out and visit you guys!
Second, Caleb, Dennis, and I headed to Taylor's falls for the afternoon. As much as I normally loathe driving that far such mild water, we had a pretty good time. There was a decent wave for surfing up at that top that gave some fun rides, though you definitely still had to earn them on the paddle back up. There was also some good eddy play and Dennis got a chance to put his new boat through a few more paces. All in all, it was a pretty good way to spend a few hours.
As a testament to the recent changes to the paddling community, that was the first time this year that I'd been part of a paddling trip without any women paddlers. It was great to have some river time with the guys, but it's also great to see the number of ladies in the paddling community now. Good times all around.
Here's to some fun in the coming weeks!
