On the second day of or camping adventure we went rafting. We went with Jim Thorpe river Adventures on the Lehigh River. They were fairly mild Class 2 rapids as this was the first time for the kids and they aren’t old enough for the faster water. It was a fantastic trip and a good time was had by all. Since we were camping in the boonies we had no idea where to eat. We needed to pack a lunch for the rafting trip. We hadn’t seen a store anywhere. We ended up stopping at this little hole in the wall sandwich and doughnut shop. Breakfast and lunch, check! Those sandwiches were awesome! Really good and they held up well to the beating they took as we rafted. The first half of the day we were the project raft. Always in the back and getting stuck. After lunch we became super-rafters and somehow missed the rocks and navigated our way through the rough parts without incident. We ended the day on a high note and took the bus ride back to the raft place. We took showers, and were off to the campground to attempt to build a fire.
Scouts or not, I suck at building fires. We got one going well enough to make some smores and heat a couple of hot dogs. The rain and wetness may have had something to do with it but fire just wasn’t our thing on this trip.
