10 Year Anniversary

Well this past Saturday was Jon and I's 10 year wedding anniversary. We've actually been together for 14 years if you can believe that. :D So we dropped Boogie off with her fabulous grandparents for a weekend of spoiling and headed to the North GA moutains where we had a cute little cabin reserved. First Jon wanted to do a bit of Off-Roading, I have never done this before but figured what the heck. It was so much fun up steep hills down steep hills, over lots of bumps, enjoying the beautiful forest on the back of a 4-wheeler. It was great until.....we took a trail that was no marked most difficult but turned out to be most difficult once we got to the bottom. For those who might contemplate going Off-Roading at Beasley's Knob outside of Blairsville GA, let me just warn you away from trail 93B as it is marked at the bottom and 93H as it is maked at the top. Not the funnest time of my life. Very very steep slope we went down from the top, and about halfway through, the sliding rock verticle decent, on a 4-wheeler, there is a boulder, a big one that you have to go down on a 4 wheeler. I climbed down mind you cause I really didn't want to flip on the 4-wheeler. Jon went down okay at first...that is important right first. Then the four wheeler started to roll and Jon bailed thank god and the 4-wheeler proceeded to roll 4 times down the mountain. OH FABULOUS! I was done, just wanted out of the woods, 4 1/2 hours of trail riding followed by ATV flipping was enough for me. So we finally found our way out without anymore inccident and headed back to the cabin to rest of for......

WHITE WATER RAFTING!! Woo Hoo!! Now this is will recommend if you are looking for something great to do. It is a must try at least once in your life. I didn't want to go some the tame Nanahala, so instead I signed Jon and I up for a full day on the Ocoee, this river includes the Olympic Whitewater Course and it was AWESOME!! Class 3 and 4 rapids, Jon and I sat in the front so we got the full brunt of the water splashing fun, and I only fell out of the boat two times. Woo Hoo!!! Once I went head first straight over Jon's head, head first and took him and two other people with me. Go me! The rapids were amazing, and we got to swim in the river twice for quite a while, which was so amazing. Jon rode the bull through tw oof the rapids, which meant that he sat on the front of the boat with his legs over the edge holding onto a strap while we went through 2 class 3 rapids. It was fabulous, I am so sad there were no pictures of that. I highly recommend rafting on th Ocoee, do the whole river, not just half it's so worth it, and we went with Rolling Thunder River Company, and they were fantastic. I can not wait to go again.

So that was a great anniversary weekend. Our little cabin was right over a beautiful creek and Jon fished for trout right off the porch. (caught a couple too). There were a couple little cascades there so we could leave the sliding door open and listen to the water too. It was so relaxing and wonderful, I can't wait to be able to do it again. :D

Once I get all the photos uploaded I'll post a few so you can see the fun. :D

I will second the recommendation for rafting! I haven't been on the Ocoee, but loved the Nantahala when we went (when I was in middle school)!

I saw the pics you sent me and LOVED them! And what would a trip with my brother be without SOME sort of incident? :)

Can't wait to see ya'll at the beach!!
