|Paddling Down the Russian River near Healdsburg, CA|
This year the weather was perfect, and we didn't even have to move the date to July! There were 46 people canoeing, 3 people kayaking, and about 55 people at the BBQ.
There were a few notable absences this year. Mike and Christy however, had the best excuse, with the birth of their son, Nolan, one week before the trip. Congratulations guys! Nat, Beener, Teri, Sanjay... I know you all had good excuses, but we missed you guys and hope you can make it back next year!
Thanks to Doug, Loi, Tasos & Jen for contributing photos! This was the first year in a long time that I have brought a little waterproof camera down the river so I actually have a few of my own pics to post this time. However, I still love to check out photo from friends. I've poached a few for this blog and the slideshow, I just hope I've got all the photo credits somewhat correct. There are over 80 photos and comments in the slideshow (link below) if you like to see more. Anyway... here are a few of them.
