Here is how it went down: We were sitting tightly while going on board. It was hard, but we managed somehow. Then, after a little bit of rowing and caring for each other, the boat selected its favorite channel (sadly it was “Lifetime”) and we started drifting along the steam. The steam was hot, so the boat started lashing out at the beach. All we could do is sit and hold fast. Someone started unhurriedly calling for help, but stopped when the boat turned over.

“Oh, my, the boat seems to be tipping over…. That’s a pitty. Excuse me, sir, but I might need some help here in a minute. No need to rush. If I end up stranded, please look for me. I’ll be rowing left and right. I’ll probably be screaming and laughing as well, remember that.”

Excuse me! Could anyone help me here? I think I may be drowning, and it would be such a pity to die today, I mean, specially while I could be laughing and screaming while the drifting is over.

Don’t rush the coast gaurd, it makes things stressful. Pace your screaming. And laughing.

Does not extend from the raft for more information. The collapse of a series of rapids, raft can swing I do not think this is a sign. Raft swing is normal, it must be down for several minutes. When you travel, the surrounding natural wonders and you will be required to observe a period of time.

At the same time the camera raft
Raft, but the food
Smoking in the raft

Raft is a waste of land, nor
E-mail the body raft.

“Sir, when you have time, I wonder if you could help us. Our boat’s turning over and we need help, we could drown. No hurry.”
