Spontaneity. It ain’t my thing. I like a plan. I like to know any and all details. I’d pretty much rather stay at home, because at home I have more control over the situations. You get my drift? Trey is much more spontaneous than I am. He doesn’t worry about the small details, time schedules, the what if’s, packing, etc. He leaves that up to me. I wish I were one of those “laid back, go with the flow, I don’t care if the sun comes up” kind of people. I’m just not. Well, with ALL that being said, Trey started talking about a camping/canoeing/rafting/St. Louis trip. Naturally, I think this is perfect timing (sarcasm added) since I have gone back to work after being at home over 6 years. Well, he WANTED to go, so HE planned. It was like PULLING teeth to get any details out of him. Finally we sat down and I explained that my anxiety levels go UP when I don’t have a clue about what is going on, and if he wanted me to calm down then I need to be in the know.
I started nearly a week in advance with the packing, sorting, washing, arranging at home, and then all the planning for my sub too. It was a j-o-b. But I managed to pull it off and last Thursday we headed out at 3:00 PM on the 4 hour tour to Eminence, MO.
Our humble abode the next morning...
The guide was taking us to our drop off spot. Kind of like "Man vs. Wild". He was warning us about snakes and such!
