The 'Skips are off for the weekend. I have my first of two whitewater races this weekend. Looks like there will be about 4 familes + a friend and German exchange student will be staying at one of the rental lodges at James River State Park. We plan on having a good old time, sharing meals, stories, hopefully not bandages this weekend. I look forward to these two weeks so much every year. Next weekend the race will be back in my hometown in Pennsylvania on the Lackawanna River during Riverfest.
