I'm Shannon, and I have PRGD...

PRGD = Post River-Guide Disorder

  • Losing focus when the weather gets warmer
  • You find yourself enjoying the smell of dirty wetsuits or poly-pro
  • Your car and your clothes are way too clean
  • Any song that reminds you of summer makes you wanna cry
  • Hopeless daydreaming about quitting your "real job"
  • You're thisclose from packing your car up and hitting the road with your dog
  • Air conditioning makes you sneeze
  • Dirt roads remind you of put-in
  •  Spending too many summers with your hands on the oars, feet in the sand, sun on your face, carrying heavy objects, living in your bathing suit, reading, swimming, talking about life with random strangers, doing dishes in the dark, hiking in the desert, sharing a house with your co-workers, eating deli sandwiches, and making life-long friends.
  •  I'm still trying to figure this one out! Can you help me? (besides getting on the river, of course!)

You're never cured, you will always be in recovery with occasional relapses. Try taking it one day at a time and remembering the mosquitos, cracked feet, and groover duty. And you can always call and I'll talk you through it.
