HEAR YE, HEAR YE........LET'S FLOAT WITH EESUSBEJESUS!

I'm very seriously on the verge of making airline reservations for the weekend of August 1st to find out if that death float is "ALL" it is supposed to be. Who else will go then?

That would be FUN. Rollercoasters and death drops from high up have become boring.

Oh boy. I'm thinking you might be disappointed, Space Cat. I've actually fallen asleep on the death float.

Can somebody tell me what the death float is, and is it in Idaho?
Because that would be a crappy state to go to on purpose I think.

Don't tell him. Make him take the quiz.

Holy crap that quiz took forever, for those of you who don't know, it's a place in Orofino Idaho, and the death float takes its name from someone almost stepping on a snake, not from the rapids you encounter. It's just a prosaic place to go rafting in the middle of nowhere. But Lodi apparently likes it.

Does that mean that you aren't interested? I guess you don't want to share a room with an older woman?

Sure, as long as I invite the older woman and what happens in Orofino stays in Orofino.

Don't worry guys, I'll bring all the supplies, floss, because I'd hate to see anybody get a cavity on vacation, sunscreen, so no one gets a tan, (or gets cancer), the bible, so we can avoid sin and reflect on our lives, and preperation H in case anyone else has a problem like mine. Wet blanket? Me? Lodi, I'll PM you with some grammar tips when posting in the BBS, it's one of my pet peeves and I'm constantly correcting people. Boy, this trip will be swell! Thanks for inviting me guys, you're the greatest!

We all can float anytime. If we can't do it all together, we can do it separately. I'm always up for a day in the sun with friends & beverages.

Don't poopoo the 1st class people. I upgrade every time I can (never pay full price). I do it for the free drinks.

Scott just reminded me that I got "him" a floating party island for Christmas last year, complete with back rests, cup holders, and a blow up palm tree. Oh yes, a good time will be had by all.

I already own the floating oasis. I was just putting it up there to show what it was.

The floating oasis is awesome except we can only keep the palm tree semi-erect.

dang - after readin thread I went to go find a pic of us floating down the brazos - but stuck when I found my pic of our dog & cat - they would crawl on top of my husbands truck and just "hang out". We lost our kitty several months ago - so this went up instead - going to find the float pic though and put up else where!

Ya'll will have to have fun without me, but I'll be there in spirit

Is the water cold in Idaho in the summer? If so, I'll definitely just whine if I come, better let me know.

In 100 degree temps, the water is absolutely refreshing. The river is called the Clearwater for a reason. Its a lazy float where you can look down and see fish swimming at the bottom of the river. There are some deep holes, but there are also a lot of places where you have to "butt up."

So far I have reserved 4 rooms for the float and can add more as we need them. Two are suites with full size hot tubs and 2 are just rooms with decks overlooking the river. The big suite will most likely be party central. After floating, we will pull our rafts right up to the deck of this hotel. If you would like to see it, go to bestwestern.com and put in Orofino, Idaho. Party central will be found in the virtual tour, the 4th picture. You can look around the room. Make sure you look at the rest of the pictures on the site, not just the virtual tour.

Tex said he's out shopping for a new speedo. (psst, hey buddy, you're supposed to put the potato in the front).
