So at the end of April a bunch of us went white water rafting in Jim Thorpe, PA. Jim Thorpe was a Native American Olympian who was stripped of his gold medals when it was discovered that he played semi-pro baseball. Can't the Native Americans catch a break? What's weird is that after he died his wife sold his body to the town that would pay the most. By purchasing his body and naming the town after him, Jim Thorpe, PA literally got its name on the map.
Then there was a battle between the town and his tribe over his body. To find out what happened click on the title link.
Okay enough learning, back to me.
It was my first trip white water rafting, and although it was cold as all get out, i had a blast. Here is a picture montage. Enjoy.
