    White water rafting

    July 15, 2017 in the United States

    We had to wake up early AGAIN because we were going white water rafting!! 👏 👏 👏 white water Rafting is where you go on a raft and the current pushes you on the river! In rafting, from highest to lowest there are 5 levels. Today we will be doing level 3. It was my first time and I was hoping there were no 🐟 fish. It took 1 hour by car and 10 minutes on the white water rafting bus 🚌. Me,Conor and another boy were the only children. The rest were adults. A professional photographer called Chris was there and He used me as the model for the opening slide! He chose me because he said "You look like you have a nice smile." 😊 I was on the first photo holding a "enjoy the video sign!!" We got everything set up and Adam (a leader) chose Ivan for us, because Ivan was the most experienced and the best for children. We got on our raft and off we went. The Truckee river is a very clear and a very shallow river and is 5 miles long. We were allowed to swim in the 'Swimming holes where the water is deep and calm. Me and Conor went in the Swimming hole twice and it was VERY cold, the water was app.15 c and Conor had goosebumps! We used our paddles when Ivan said to used them. When we were on our first rapid the drop wasn't that big. On the second drop, it was deep and the third level rapids, (there were 2: 'Jaws' and 'Pinball') I was most scared about pinball because we were the 'ball'. When we went on Jaws there was a HUGE drop! Water came in from everywhere and me and Conor's teeth were chattering!!! It was freezing, colder than summer in Ireland 🇮🇪!!! Conor was going to cry because he didn't want to go on Pinball, but I told him "would you rather stay in this river for the whole night, or just do Pinball" and he replied "Pinball" and after all, Pinball wasn't scary.
    That was veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery fun and I want to do that again!!!!!!

    Camping Thaoe Forest

    September 29, 2017 in the United States

    Stau, Stau, Stau.....Wir haben heute 8 Stunden im Auto verbracht und sind bis Einbruch der Dunkelheit nicht am eigentlichen Ziel angekommen. Kurz vor sieben haben wir uns dann dazu entschlossen vom Highway runter zu fahren und uns ein Schlafplatz zu suchen. Gleich danach haben wir auch einen wunderschönen Campingplatz gefunden, der an einen Bach liegt mit Glasklaren Wasser, wo wir allerdings ganz alleine sind. Eine Vertrauenskasse, eine Toilette, etliche Stellplätze, aber sonst nichts - keine Menschenseele. Ein Auto war noch etwas weiter abseits von uns zu sehen. Nachdem wir unser Auto zum schlafen vorbereitet hatten, kochten wir uns noch ein paar Nudeln. Als es immer dunkler wurde, machte sich ein schlechtes Gefühl bei uns im Bauch breit. Da hier ja die Braunbären zu Hause sind und es auch nicht unüblich ist das sie sich über Campingplätze und ihre Mülltonnen her machen, beeilten wir uns mit dem Essen, räumten den Müll sorgfältig in die großen verschließbaren Mülltonnen aus gefühlten 3 Tonnen Stahl, aus Schutz vor den Bären, und liegen nun im Auto.
    Das wird ne aufregende Nacht 👌

    Around and up to Donner

    July 19, 2017 in the United States

    We stopped off to look at the island where the crazy "look at my toes" hermit lived but you can see the haze is still thick. Franklin took a few pots shots with the "cannon".

    It wasn't long up to Donner Lake where the kids helped set up shop. We had a nice pasta dinner and then - our first screen activity in a couple weeks - we watched "The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly" with the laptop on the dashboard. Well - with watched the first half and finished it the next night. Samantha liked the movie but isn't convinced Clint was particularly "good". Still - it wax the perfect movie given all the land we'd travelled through.Read more

    Paddleboarding Donner

    July 20, 2017 in the United States

    After a quick breakfast, doing laundry, and cleaning 1000 miles of bugs off the windshield, we took Samantha's advice and tried paddle boarding. It was great - though taking pictures while boarding was a challenge!

    More pics and a scramble

    July 20, 2017 in the United States

    We kept going through the tunnels (about 2 miles worth). We had to scramble a few times through washouts, and Franklin impressed us with a great climb up to the roof!

    The view at the end of the tunnel was great!
