I've had enough sports for the next 2 years! Yes, the adventure weekend was fabulous, and apart from some bruises, being very tired and every muscle aching, everything is great.
We left on friday morning around 08h15, drove over to the spot where we decided to meet, and left there around 09h15. Jess & Johan, who also brought Maarten & Enid with them were only 17 minutes late, but that was not entirely suprising :)
In the afternoon we had a 'small' kayaking trip of 10 kilometers, and although it was the same distance as last time, this time it was much harder to complete. We had to get out a few times, pour a whole lot of water out of our kayak - which had become a submarine - and continue. After arriving, we had a few drinks (non alcoholic) and headed over to the bungalow.
After having a whole lot of food - spaghetti - we did some games, goofed around for a while and started a night dropping around 23h30. Funny thing is that we only knew the dropping would take about 2 hours, but we didn't know what distance we would have to travel to get back. Upon arrival the guide who explained it all mentioned the distance we would have to go - if we followed the ideal route that is : 8 kilometers! Aaarrrgghhh... anyway, after we completed the trip, we were very glad that we arrived. Maarten did a very very good job at map reading and guided us without too much problems.
There is more to night droppings as just walking thru the night. It also includes walking thru very very dark woods, getting stuck in mud and getting dirty all over. Yey for sports :)
Saturday a game of paintball was planned, and that was fun as well. Very fun fun indeed, ask Joco, who was the first bear that we need to shoot 5 times... Lol.
Saturday evening a few other people came by and we had a very good BBQ, lotsa of Sangria and other drinkable things, usually mixed with some form of alcohol. Went to bed around 3'ish and woke up around 11h00.
Sunday = Challenger parcours, so we hung in rops, rode of cliffs and things like that. The Deathride looked very very intimidating, but the second you jump off, you forget the anxiety and fear and just enjoy the ride down. We finished by completing the Commando Bridge, but by that time most of the group had given up, so it was just Wim, Enid and I who completed it.
Monday meant leaving, having breakfast and arriving home around 15h. Cleaned the apartement, went to pick up the ferrets and crashed completely around 21h00. Phew.
