This past weekend was the second annual champlemerisle. Last year Lauren and I built two rafts based on this video of "camping rafts" and this year we built two more that combine into one big one. Also new this year we camped out on the sandbar. Despite covid about 12 people safely attended and had a blowout good time together. Here's a minute and a half video I threw together.

Can't wait to do it again! See you next year!
