View Full Version : Our trip down the peace river

Saturday morning we loaded up some trucks and went to where the halfway river meets the peace. It's an annual event called paddle the peace.

The actual event is about a 2 hour paddle but we decided to go all the way to peace island park where our trailers were parked. Took us about 11 hours, 4 cases of twisted teas, 5 cases of beer and a bottle of vodka.

Weather was beautiful and even though we all got sunburnt, flipped a few kayaks and yes I fell out of our canoe once we all made it safe and sound and had a blast.

Had to wait to link my camera with the computer to get photos off. Best part of the trip was no cell service for 11 hours. Left it in the trailer for the day.

Looks like fun! Haven't been up that far in B.C, hoping to get out to Salmon Arm in a few weeks for some boating though.

Looks like a whole lot of fun! We used to float down the Illinois River in Oklahoma when I was a kid, on inner-tubes!

Got back and had about 10 missed work calls and not one really had to be made before Monday. Was great to leave it behind.

Love Salmon Arm. I grew up in the kamloops area so I played a lot of ball there as well as golf.

We did the same thing. Our parents would drive us up to east Barriere lake and we would float the river down to my friends house right in the middle of town.

The canoes were a buddy of mine. I found a 14' aluminum on the local bargain finder for $300, picking it up tomorrow. The kayaks are nice but we want to be able to take the kids as well. It's a lot of fun ACC I highly recommend it. Were talking about starting from farther next time and camping on the side of the river at the mid point somewhere

I'm on call 24/7/365 so I am pretty much married to the thing and it rings constantly. Even when I don't go out and do the work myself I still have to schedule it. A few times a year I just tell the guys to phone the contractors themselves and shut it down. Feels great.

Half of our guys text the other half are older and refuse to text so ya I still have to take calls.

As far as social media I do it all the time (maybe a little too much) but I try and get out on my weekends and do things and then go back and post about it after the weekends done.

If I take ang or the kids out to a restaurant I put my phone away in here purse. Pretty much anything can wait for me to have a nice dinner with my family.

I realize it as soon as my office phone starts ringing. They track me down no matter what

6'2" 230ish ATM, one of the guys kneeling is over 6' but I outweigh him by at least 60lbs. Angie (blue bikini) is 4'11". We were laughing when we saw the picture because it looks like Im a chaperone on a highschool trip.

It's not that damn deep for goodness sake. There's nothing at the bottom anyways. Most of that matters is around the surface.

Sorry that we pervs came to ruin your beautiful thread :)
Angie looks beautiful. She looks so different here than in the other picture. I didn't recognize her.

That other picture was last summer and she's bulking right now so she's put on a fair amount of muscle. Also has bangs ATM and her hairs not as blonde because she went red for a bit (she knows I like trashy red heads lol) but is slowly going back blonde.

She competed around the time that other pic was taken (won overall fitness at the BC championships). I have no doubt with her gymnastics background she could take a serious run at her pro card but she isn't really interested. She's loving the 5x5 were doing now and is thinking of trying a power lifting comp in the future.
