What, no 6 star ratings available..???The trip with Adam/Shelly, Jim/Tom was even more memorable than our first in 1984, which was bitchin'.
Galloway was my raft. I felt a kindred spirit with Jim, and besides, we're both big-time geologist enthusiasts.This little ditty, sung at the Low/No Talent night (favorite..!), sums up my second memorable time on this special water.GRAND RIVER
An ode to Gallo/Jim/Tom and Dubie/Adam/Shelly, and friends on a most excellent escapade
Sung (loosely) to Moon RiverGrand River, mile after mile, we’re traveling in style, this day…
With guides skillful, ever cheerful, each morning they greet us the very same way..!Great coffee, and hearty breakfast too, then off to use the loo,
(… but only for a poo)
(… with such a Groovy view)Days drifting, with friends both old and new, multi-generational too,
… lessons ‘neath the storied spires
… of which we never tire
… and tails of which I‘m sure are true (!)Camp’s chosen, when the day’s run’s done, post zipper-line we crack a brew
Gourmet dinners, our chef’s, winners, then afterwards maybe a wren-run or two
… and a circular raucous ensuesTrip’s closing, sad to see it end, I’ll miss you all my dear old farts
Once more an adventure, has gathered us together, more wonderous memories to hold in our heartsGrand River, mile after mile, we’re traveling in style, this day
With guides skillful, ever cheerful, so grateful we had you to show us the wayyyyyy.Humbly,DMTI'll be sending this Ode to Jim as he asked.
He may have some fun with it, and he knows we have a dream to dory down with him...En masse, the group loved the trip. And for us older ones, we were our parents in 1984, and to expose our kids to what we were exposed to, well, check off that item off the big list.Thanks for all you do. It worked again.Cheers,Dave
