NM: 10:00 AM
We start the day's float. There are big yellow wasps flying everywhere. Not aggressive, but they are drawn to the colors of our gear and crawl into our cups and bottles while we're eating breakfast. Neat-looking bugs, but Tim hates them. He's got a thing about bees, can't help ducking and swatting whenever one flies by. No wonder he gets stung so often. I'm feeling evil, so I tell him I think they're the kind that stings tarantulas, paralyzing them so that their larvae can live off fresh meat.
