We bought a camper several months ago and figured in order to make it pay off we needed to go away for the weekend once a month. This is hard with our jobs. We've managed to do so in April, May, June and now August. This weekend we went out to SW PA. Our campsite was right on the Youghiogheny River. It was a gorgeous setting.
The campground we stayed at offered kayak rentals. While we had never done this before we decided to be adventurous. We rented two for Saturday morning. They drove us up river about three miles. There were not any instructions which made me a bit nervous. We did know the section of river we would cover was pretty tame with just a few gentle rapids. It was a beautiful day. We ended up spending 3 hours in the water both Saturday and Sunday. The scenery was gorgeous and because we went out early each day we nearly had the river to ourselves. We spent the weekend planning on some kayaking back home. Our son and DIL have kayaks that we can borrow until we see if we really want to invest in our own
