“Do you think we do too much on the weekends?” I asked my 12-year-old son as we sat around the campfire during a late-summer backpacking trip to Deer Lake.

“Yeah, I really haven’t hung out with my friends much this summer.”

“So, do you still want to float with Grandma and Grandpa next weekend?”

“Yeah, I want to—that’s tradition.”

If there had been other people around, they would have seen the pride on my face. Not only were we up at this pristine alpine lake, next week we would be rafting the Missouri River—the fifth river of the summer.
