Trip Introduction:


Last spring, after planning out our kids' summer schedule I noticed a "hole" in the couple weeks between when summer camps ended and when school started. I had a week of vacation time that hadn't been designated for anything & took the opportunity to take two of my three kids on a canoe trip. My oldest, currently a junior in high school, was already back to school when we left for the trip otherwise he would have probably joined in.
