Today was another typical travel day. Up early, a quick breakfast of cereal and yogurt and quick departure from Helena CRC. We spent a grand total of about 7 hours in the vehicles today. We did the long stretch from Helena MT, to Lava Hot Springs in Idaho. This was awesome, for a cheap tube rental you can go up and down the river a few times.

It’s a small river with gentle rapids that takes about 20 minutes to float down. Rule number 1: never get out of your tube. A few of us, Frank, Katie, Emma, and myself all fell out of our tubes. Some of them were lucky enough to get back in but Frank and I were not; and we have the bruises and bumps to prove it. All in all, it was great fun and nobody was sunburned.

After the river, we packed everything into the vehicles and made the short 2-hour drive to Liberty, Utah, where we have rented a house through Airbnb. This place is great, a full house and yard. We have settled in and the crew is making supper. We are looking forward to a restful night of devotions, bonfire, and fellowship. There have been some great memories already, and we are only getting started. Can’t wait for more.
