This is just not the time of year to be swimming in TEE shirts & cutoffs!!
Im not sure, but that may have been me and my buddies. there were 5 of us in our own raft. we werent prepared for double drop, went in sideways and ate it. we did somehow manage to get back on the raft and finish the river. we probably should have had on more then sleeveless shirts, when i hit the water my adrenaline was pumping so hard i couldnt even feel it.
