Kayak Trip – British Columbia, Canada.
[Things you should know: Â Lacey is my sister, and Ed is my uncle, and Shane is a friend]…
Last night we camped up the road from the Chilliwack (river in BC that tried to eat me alive). We found a nice little spot up on a ledge in a clear cut just past mile marker 96. We had a great view from up there, but the campsite itself was a mess. There’s a reason it quickly became known as “Camp Serote“. We got there near dark, and were totally worn out from the days river run. We chatted a bit, then decided to head off to bed. Â Lacey and Shane set up camp on the ground, I took the back of the truck, while Ed crawled off to bed in his tent.
As we were drifting off to sleep we started hearing strange noises. It was like a flying frog/bear/bird thing. It was really creepy, and kinda freaked us out because we could NOT tell what it was. WeÂ figuredÂ it was some strange bird swooping around and went to sleep.
Awhile later Lacey woke up to the sound of rocks rolling down the mountain behind us. She freaked. She litterally jumped out of her sleeping bag, directly on top of Shane. She was screaming. Hysterically. (more…)
