About 5 years ago, some friends and I embarked on what we figured would be an annual Memorial Day weekend tradition of floating the Illinois River. The first year, a bridge collapsed about 20 miles away from us. The second year, it was cold and rainy the entire weekend. The third”¦well”¦the third year never happened and the tradition stopped.
Now, after seeing this new picture surfacing of Amy Mcree, Maggie Carlo and Jessica Schambach, I’m think it’s time to get out the ice chest, paddle
and pipe and float the Illinois again.
p.s.- A big thanks goes out to the person with the email address Mark.Rogers@koco.com for sending this picture. We salute you!
