14/f can’t swim and ask to go whitewater rafting?
I am 14 and my friend ask me if I want to go white water rafting trip for a three day vacation. I really don’t know how to swim should I go. I am afraid to tell her that I can’t swim. I love outdoor camping and that what we will be doing but the rafting part scares me. She told me the water will be cold so I will need to wear a wetsuit but that is supplied there. Should I go
I can swim but not that great. I never swam in a river before
If you are afraid of the water you need to be honest and not go on that part of the trip. Particularly with the cold water situation, you are at higher risk of panicking and even endangering other people.
Meanwhile, there is no excuse for anyone, child or adult, to not know how to swim. Everyone should know how. You should really take a class and learn that skill as soon as you can. Most cities have a YMCA or YWCA or community college that offer basic swimming classes. Swimming is not difficult — you don’t have to be superfit or athletic to learn simple water safety and how to handle yourself with basic strokes and get over your fear of deep water (fear is the main problem for non-swimmers and the folks who have to rescue them).
Opening my own shop or buying a franchise?
I want to open my own outdoor/sports shop that sells hunting and fishing supplies, hiking and camping gear, etc. but there is a lot of headache with opening my own business, so I thought about buying a Bass Pro Shop, or Gander Mountain franchise.
The closest Bass Pro Shops are an hour and 42 minutes, and the other is 2 hours and 34 minutes. The closest Gander Mountain is 2 hours and 40 minutes away.
What do you think would be the best route to take? I am leaning more towards opening my own shop, that way I can personalize it more, and add on throughout time.
Is your net worth $1,000,000? If not, forget about a franchise.
Another Excel Question.?
I got this worksheet that has like 1500 products listed in it. and in column D is there category. And there is a total of 56 Categories. What i would like to do is Make a sub category in Column F. Is it possible to have it say. Look up column D and then see it is a cordless phone then automatically fill in D as in office supplies? or if it was camping gear. it would fill in as Outdoor? I know i could use the If function but that only allows a few IF’s i have 56 categories so dose not work for me.
I don’t know if this answers your question, but I know in excel you can create lines and add a background to a cell. You could also combine two cells at the top by pressing a button, which i thinks is a sort of an a. Hope it helps!!
We do not have cable TV – is there a way to catch the Yankees games? For free, if possible.?
My father in law is coming to visit for about 11 days starting tomorrow. We got rid of cable awhile ago. He is older and has just a few real pleasures. One is watching the Yankees play.
Do you know how we can supply him with one of his few favorite pass times? We do have high speed wireless internet. The other thing he likes to watch, and so do I, is M*A*S*H. It is not on HULU – any way to watch on internet? (I could start up netflix again but it always takes a few days to start. He will be gone before we get many DVDs.)
Now don’t worry – we have other activities planned… Taking him to a play tomorrow, camping in a cabin next weekend, water skiing show Tuesday evening, outdoor jazz concert on Thursday, etc.
Are you out of market for the Yankees? You didn’t say where you are.
MLBTV is a great way to get any games and for 11 days, signing up is just dollars a day.
