One of my favorite float buddies these days is Ms. Jen Spears, owner of Roots Massage here in Bend, OR. Jen had the great idea of floating during the Pink Martini Concert. What a blast. It was sort of a “who’s who” of Bend running into several raft guides and boats full of folks from the companies they guide with, tons of families in Canoes, and best yet, my co-worker/supervisor from Patagonia@Bend/Triple Crown Thru-Hiker/Author/Athlete sponsored by Hop Valley out of Eugene, Mary Moynihan. Mary, an accomplished raft guide, was floating in a punctured raft she had patched after finding it in a rubbish receptacle (location unknown). Absolute Legend. Oh, how I love the river, and all the colorful characters on it! See you on the river this Friday?
