Family Adventure for a Cause

Alan and Paul (SOS and DancesWithSandyBottom) will not be the first father - son team to participate in a WaterTribe event, Michael and Brian Collins (GreyBeard and ChefRamen) finished an Everglades Challenge in 2002. and 2003 (I believe ChefRamen was a high school student at the time).

But, Brian and Marissa (Capt'n of the 0'dark 30 and Super Boo) will be the very first father - daughter team, and Boo will have the distinction of being the youngest Triber. Welcome to the Tribe Boo. Father and daughter will make their final plans after they finish the Kruger 100 Challenge this weekend.

Those of us who follow the Captn's blog, have been reading about her exploits for awhile now. Super Boo, just 11 years old, has become quite the adventurer, and, she's quite a paddler. Not just for fun and adventure, Boo's planning to give back. Her blog, The Adventures of Super Boo, and her participation in water based challenges and adventures will be dedicated to raising awareness and money for breast cancer, an illness her mother is currently fighting. And, to do it all while playing with Dad will be moments to treasure forever.

I'll bet KiwiBird is just chomping at the bit to be the first mother - son team when that 'wee' one is a bit older.

You bet she is! And there are some interesting discussions on the subject at home... But I'm taking the wee one's ever constant gurgles to be gurgles of assent.
