After the water was balled out and had
started back down river, the water fights
began. Some of us grabbed bailers and filled
them with water, while others paddled
silently up behind the enemy raft. "Now."
The signal was given, and we bombarded the
enemy boat in a cloud of water. Too often we
got as wet as the raft we attacked.
Sometimes, when we hurled bailers full of
water at other rafts, the water ended up
hitting our own crew.
The missed shots occasionally led to
mutiny. Thus, there was a greater chance of
being pushed overboard by an angry
crewmate than of being knocked out of the
boat by a rapid.
Once, we went over a six-foot waterfall. A
guide had to accompany each raft over the
falls, so our boats went at staggered intervals.
The guide's instructions were simple. "Just
wedge your feet underneath the tubing and
lean toward the center." Those onshore,
waiting their turn, heard laughter, screams,
shouts and more curses as the raft tumbled
like a roller-coaster through the white water.
Back onshore the frightened paddlers were
easy to discern; they did not say a word.
Their faces were blank as their turn to go over
. the falls approached.
' After a few more rapids on the river, we
came to the flats. A mile and a half of very .
shallow water stretched before us. We ended
up doing more walking in the shallows and
pushing off rocks than pad dling.
Once we headed toward a large boulder
and couldn't decide cn which side to pass.
Cut, the current decided for us. The river
pushed the raft up high cn the rock, and as
we slid to one side someone yelled, "Now
what do we do?" But the water pushed us cn.
Somehow, we untangled ourselves and
crawled back to our places. '
In the shadows of the mountains the wind
picked up, and through our drenched clothes
we felt the autumn cold.
After seven hours of paddling, laughing
and getting wet, we came ashore, As we
climbed the hill and crossed the road to board
the bus, we joked about how heavy our legs
felt. The aches from muscle exhaustion felt
Our fingers were red and numb. Someone
said it was time for a beer, a backrub, dinner
and a few hours of sleep. i
The next day on the balcony of the dorm, a
friend described the trip quite appropriately.
"It was like being out of time. We were the
only ones on earth and nothing else existed,
nothing else mattered."
