Tubing is groooovy

In Hawaii, we have the beach and so many different activities - surfing, snorkeling, kiteboarding, etc. etc. etc. and etc. In Texas, they have rivers and tubing! It was fun. fun. and fun! Close to San Antonio run 2 rivers that people generally tube down - the Guadalupe River and the Comal River. Both waters originate from springs, making the temperature fairly cold but, comfortable during the summer months. We chose to tube a small section of the Comal River next to the Schlitterbahn Waterpark. Gnarly! I'd do it again!

It started off fairly flat and calm - lots to look at, very scenic, and everyone in the area was having a great time.

Then, came what the locals call, The Chute. Dun dun DAAAA! I like how they paint the walls of the chute red. "If yall see red, yer pretty much f@*&ed!"

Almost instantly, we went from "horse and buggy" speed to what seemed like "Ludicrous" speed and as we began to spin like a careening race car out control, sides scraping the walls of "El Chuto", sparks flying, and all the world seemingly a blur, I thought of 2 things. When is my tube going to pop? How will I save the beer I brought? As luck would have it, we made it and I am here on my blog reporting from the ends of earth.

Dogs tube too!
