4 People 12 Times (August edition)

So this is one of those cheesy photos that a vendor takes of the tourists and then rips them off by charging $20 for a package. But I'm a sucker for that sort of thing, especially since I didn't take my camera on the raft for fear of it getting wet. Plus, it serves as a perfectly serviceable photo for the 4 people 12 times series, which you can read more about in this post.  My family spent a wonderful, leisurely couple of hours floating down the Truckee River.  When asked if we went white water rafting, DH Paul replied no, it was river rafting.  When pushed as to the distinction, he said, "white water rafting is when you have to worry about staying in the boat. River rafting is where you worry about keeping the beer in the boat. All paper Club Scrap.

It is such an important point of clarification ;-)
I'm really looking forward to these types of activity as our kids get that little bit older and can old their own physically.

A very important distinction indeed....and I would only ever choose the second type!And the 'tourist' photo is a really good one.

It's a great distinction. I have a similar photo from a white water raft trip in Colorado many years ago. I wasn't too worried about staying in the raft, but we sure couldn't have had anything to drink during the trip! Gotta find that photo and scrap it! Thanks for the memory!

One of our favorite activities when visiting Tahoe - and I love Paul's description of what river rafting is ;-) At our house we just call it "truckin' on the Truckee"!

HAHAHAHA i TOTALLY agree... the Truckee is a "float trip" not river rafting... looks like fun, tho.. and i'm a sucker for those photos, too because they are the only ones that have all of us in them.
