We spent July 24th up at the Brown’s property agian this year. We thought it would be fun to take the kids tubing down the Price river. We rounded up all the tubes we could find at home and headed up. The kids of course thought this was a blast, well all but Kenzie who was with Russ and to worried about me to have any fun. She cried the whole way down the river. This trip was supposed to be nice and relaxing with little action, ha ha ha. I ended up riding with Natalie and between us we had 1 snow tube, 2 floatiung rafts and 1 noodle. That was a receipe for trouble. We started out alone and ended up together. She was a tropper. We were so sore after the ride, with all the musle tightening after going over the rapids on our bellies and leg hanging in the water. Our poor chins were cut and bruised and the whole time we had smiles on our faces asking ourselves who’s idea this was.
There were 15 of us total and we actually came out alive and laughing. Mike was lucky enough to catch a snake with his finger. Poor little guy thought Mike was an even match. LOL But he did grab onto his finger and was not about to let go. I was the lucky one who caught the one and only fish thos day, I really wasn’t to excited about that, there is nothing worse than catching a fish between you chest and chin and have it flop around your face. Poor Natalie, I think I ruptured her ears with my screaming. I sure wish I had my camera with me down the river to catch some of these moments. Looks like I should invest in a water camera for the next go around.
Colten and I drew out for the Turkey hunt this year, Russ did not. Russ was our personal guide, but by the end I think he was a little sick of us beginners. I have never hiked so much in my life. It was really frustrating this trip when we hike all the way up the mountain and on our way down, we had two run in front of Colten and were gone so fast I missed them. We got in the truck and drove up the road and seen then crossing the road.
I realized quickly that hunting isn’t as east as it looks. Poor Russ, the opening morning he was up the mountain like a goat and me, well I was struggling. I was out of breath and coughing, I even had to stop to puke, good times! I made it up the mountain to sit for a total of 10 minutes before Russ said there were to many people and it was a waste of our time. I ended up falling and sliding most of the way down the mountain feel in a snow bank while jumping and the whole time I was laughing to myself. I really had no business being on that mountain like that.LOL
Colten was a good sport, we dragged him around a lot and his poor feet were frozen. he didn’t think much of waking up at 4:30 to get on the mountain by 5:30. He sure did have a blast once we stated seeing them. We were not successful but we had a blast doing this together.
The most amazing thing to me about the hunt was watching and listening to the moutain wake up in the morning. i never realized how many birds there really are in the woods. The owls would hoot and the deer wake up around you.
