Default I ride rivers

Just wanted to share this experience real quick with you guys.

So today me, my buddy and his gf decided to go buy a raft and some ores and hit a random river and just go for it. We actually bought a pool "party platform" and loaded up with beers and some jack. We hit the river and 4 hours later ended up at the assistant to the attorney general for the UK's house! The caretaker was dope as **** and gave our lucky asses a ride back to our car. A total godsend and made the trip that much better that we didn't need to walk back for who knows how many hours.

We talked about walking back the first hour, but after that it was pretty much too late. Lucky for us we ended up at this mansion with nobody home, but the caretaker came back just at the right time! Awesome ******* night for me

I was gonna bring the camera but I felt like it would have lasted 5 minutes before it hit the water.

The guy we spoke with is the care taker for the mansion we showed up at. He said the house is owned by the assistant to the attorney general for the UK, and this is one of his cottage homes that he only stays at a couple weekends during the year. This place was gigantic as ****!

We pulled over at just the right house. As soon as we realized nobody was home we jumped in the heated pool to get the river **** off us. Then just as we picked everything up to start our walk the guy pulls up. He could have been a raging lunatic seeing we were in his gated mansion property, but he was a cool ******* dude.

I just checked with google earth to see how far we actually went.

3.24 miles down the river on a pool float.
