Booster Blues – 2/100

Booster Blues – 2/100

Yesterday I mentioned getting the COVID booster shot and while I am not feeling awful today I am definitely not at the top of my game. So I am using it as an excuse to whine, complain, and be a bit lazy. According to CNBC I don’t get to complain too much though. Still I would rather spend a day or two feeling sluggish compared to the alternative.

Mexico Multiday Rafting on the Usumacinta river

Yesterday I mentioned that I will be spending 8 days in the Mexican jungle rafting the Usumacinta River. I am going to post about this trip leading up to it but have a slight delima: When I am on the river I will have no access to the Internet (oh the horror), so I am going to need to come up with scheduled posts for those days. My thinking is that I will have a post that mimics the itinerary of the guide website (warning 1990’s website) but we will see what I come up with.

Here is a video of the trip:

Video from the river guide of the Usumacinta multi-day rafting trip.

We are going with a group of friends who are serious rafters. They did a 30 day trip down the entire Grand Canyon a few years ago and think that this river is a great one for us to get our feet wet. From watching this video they consider the biggest rapids on the Usumacinta to be fun but tame. Since I will be manning the oars of Kate and I’s boat I am slightly less nervous now, maybe.

The trip takes us to a couple of Mayan ruins that are only accessible via the river. We will be guided through them by local Mayan descendants. I am really looking forward to that part of the trip too.

We are just over a month out and have pretty much everything ready to go. I may be binge watching various rafting videos on Youtube to refresh my whitewater knowledge. Also trying to figure out if I want to get a new GoPro for filming the trip. I have one now but I think its a GP 3 and they have come a long way since then. If you have any suggestions feel free to leave a comment.

  1. Man, what an amazing trip. I’m jealous. 😅 I’ll be due for a booster here before long. Really not looking forward to it as the second doze of Pfizer was a pretty good sucker punch for me personally.

    • Thanks we are getting more and more excited about the trip.

      The side effects of the booster aren’t that bad. I am just sluggish and have a mild headache. Taking it easy today so no workouts or chores. Its nothing near as bad as when I had the real ‘rona 5 weeks ago. That was not great.
