The camping trip at Huzzah Valley in Steelville, Missouri was a great time.  The weather on the day of the float was nearly perfect.

I got some more good use out of my $50 Woolrich straw hat.  I may have overpaid at $50, but I’ve had it over a year now, and even though I haven’t had it on very much, it seems to hold up well on the days that I do wear it.  It stays on my head for as much as 8 hours on those days, and it still looks brand new.  Not too shabby for a straw hat.

Jessie had never been camping, and she liked it.  Or at least she says she did.  Sleeping was a bit uncomfortable due to the humidity, but it could have been worse.

Anyway, I’m keeping this short.  I can’t wait to do it again next year, or possibly sooner.
