Michael had just graduated from college and it was a chance for a father and son bonding experience. One challenging thing about the experience personally was that whenever I was Michaels age I had been tossed from a canoe trying to shoot white-water rapids in Minnesota together a life-threatening experience. Once I was beyond the canoe the river kept tumbling me repeatedly and pulling me under giving me only seconds to capture a breath. The experience had been very real in my opinion and I never forgot how fortunate I felt to outlive the rivers forceful pull. Even though I had also been with an Outward Bound experience along learned the gap between “real” fear and “imagined” fear, thinking about shooting rapids in the raft, in a very strange country, for nine days, was causing some distress for me personally.
