Blueway Vacation

As mentioned awhile back, we are heading down to Tennessee for the next week. After much deliberation, we have decided to bring our families on a multi-day canoe trip. Actually first, we're meeting in Chattanooga for an afternoon, followed by a day of whitewater rafting on the Ocoee River. Then, we're doing the canoe trip.

Our good friends, the Chaffins 3, put us on to this idea. Over 50 miles of the Tennessee River has been designated the Blueway. We are starting in downtown Chattanooga, and paddling for 2 1/2 days, with some stops at the rope swings and the river restaurant.

Our families really like each other, so we strategically decided to use them as bait against one another. And it worked! So Rachel's brother and two cousins will be coming to meet up with us and Eric's 3 sisters and brothers-in-laws (to be). Good times await, and we're quite excited. We could not have down this without the Chaffins 3 (the baby played a key role), and we're very grateful. I hope none of us die. Or get maimed.

I remember rafting the Ocoee a few times with some of you when I was at Belmont.

I hope you all have a great trip. I'l be seeing you at the wedding.
