Tubin' the Guadalupe

Mr. & Mrs. 140 took me camping with them to New Braunfels in beautiful Comal County, TX. We spent six freaking hours floating the Guadalupe River on Saturday, finally getting dry at 7:00pm. It was a slow, freezing cold ride on an overcast Hill Country day, but it was still a blast, and I have the bruises from the ride down the rapids to prove it. Every once in a while I forgot to lift myself up and would take a rock right on the butt or on my back. I am proud to say I wiped out only once and while I did lose my hat, I never lost my beer or my inner tube.
Today was perfect tubing weather - 92 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. The next camping trip may be to my favorite place in the wide world - Garner State Park & the Frio River. It's got clear water, gorgeous scenery and lots of hot South Texas cowboys. Nothing chills that kind of heat like the Rio Frio, which lives up to its name.
