White-water Rafting

Last Weekend. I went white-water rafting in the Kern River with Troop 11 Scouts and as my family as a vacation. My family and I went early because we didn’t want to drive in the dark and we wanted to get our tents up early and get settled in and relax the rest of the day.

When we got to camp it took a long time because both of the tent poles broke, but we still got the tent to work. We also put an air mattress for my grandma in her tent.We barely got the bed to fit be we did. Later my dad and grandma made  delicious  carne-asada tacos while we were waiting for the Troop 11 scouts to show up. When they showed up our patrol set up the tent and our sleeping bags and went to sleep.

The next day we were preparing to get on the rafts by getting life-vest on and ores. The life vest were so tight I couldn’t breathe. The instructor said if you can’t breathe it is on right.

My dad,mom,uncle Shawn and two scouts Peter from the Rhino patrol and Ventura from the Kodiak patrol was in our raft. We went down many rapids and when we got to beaver pond the instructors made a slide with the rafts. We went on a class three rapid and our raft quickly fell over on most of us fell in the freezing cold water.

Quickly, We all got rescued by the other rafts. Later that day we went to have lunch at the Pizza Barn. After I was full of pizza i went to go take a nap. We had a good time at the campfire , there were many skits and jokes that made it a good night.

Ill talk to you later.
