|Blaine and his grandson.|
Our friend Blaine graduated from Princeton in 1955, and every year his college roommates come out to New Mexico for a rafting trip. They’ve been doing the rafting trip for plus or minus 13 years and have rafted many of the great rivers of the Southwest. The Princeton trip also includes good friends of Blaine’s that he has met over the years rafting, and the 55ers always have family members – wives, kids, grandkids – along too. There are about 10 people who go every year, and last summer we were 30. We ranged in age from 13 to 87!
|This was the year that Blaine's wife got us all matching t-shirts in the Princeton colors.|
We were lucky enough to be invited on the Princeton trip for the first time a few years ago, and it is so much fun to spend a weekend on the river with this special group of people that has been doing it for years. It’s like a rafting family.

Until next summer!
