Canoe Trip 2002

 
Duy: This is gonna be great, Dude.

Steve: Note to self- kill, everyone, for waking me up so early. Oh well, at least I get to go canoeing. Man, it's freezing...

Sean: Man, I hope Steve isn't mad at us for waking him up so early.

Tri: Hi... yeah, I need directions to War Eagle Resorts- yes, I'll hold... while I strike my POSE!

[Yes, this is the first shot of the day shot early in the morning after a stillwater police officer stopped by and checked the trunk for any alc... i mean, dead bodies... Other than that, these VASA men are ready to get their roll on. AL'IGHT!]

 
Benson: Steve, isn't it too early for "3-Fingers"? Hmm... I guess not.

Sean: Man, I don't think any of these moFo's have ever been canoeing before... I'm screwed.

Steve: It ain't never too early for "3-Fingers," fool! Holla...!

Duy: Gimme my canoeing stick, sucka!

[Can you feel the love? It may not be evident, but it's there. VASA love. One love for all.]

 
Girl One: Smile for the camera... 'cause it's about to get SMMMACKED!

Girl Two: Tehe... you should do it.

Others: Just keep rowin'.

[This is the group of friends that Lisa brought up. They were fast. Maybe they just didn't want to play with us... Neah...]

 
Vincent: I'd like to give a shout out to my moms.

Jiron: Canoeing is cool, but the sun needs to come out.

Jennifer: Um... I don't know if I should smile. These guys are from OSU... I mean, don't they ride horses and carry guns?

Betty: Sure you can! It's VASA!!!

[And now, meet the OU crew. Um, there's Vincent, Jiron, Jennifer, Vu(behind Vincent), & Betty... I think.]

 
Lisa: Lucky me... in a boat with three guys. Yeah, I'm happy.

Steve: 3-Fingers, fool!

Duy: Man... is Steve in a gang?

Tri: Uh... 3-Fing... Fingers... Hey, Steve, is this how you do it?

[3-Fingers indeed. And this isn't the end of it.]

 
Benson: I forsee a day of many, many camera clicks.

Sean: I can't believe these guys... Ain't nobody rowin' but me... If they weren't my only ride home, I'd sock it to 'em.

Tri: Wha color esth mah ton?

Duy: ...I don't wanna see that again. Close your mouth.

[Four men in one boat... Let's hope they make it out alive.]

 
[Ah, group pictures... proof that more than just officers go on a VASA trip. This'll come in handy during recruitment. 'VASA' on three! One, two three- VASA!!!]

[Oh, by the way, can you guess who is taking the picture? You don't win a prize or anything, but let's give 'em some credit anyway.]

 
Steve: Aw man... I can't believe I missed that pass! Did you see me? I fell off the canoe perfectly... *sigh* Yeah, I planned that one. 'Pretty funny, huh?

Steve: Ha ha ha. Look at Tri! Ha ha... What's the matter, fool? Not strong enough to get back in? Ha ha...

[The things our president does to keep us entertained. His leadership will surely be missed.]

 
Tri: Hey... Can I get some help here?

Tri: Stop laughing, Steve... It's not funny! Huh...

Tri: Man... I can't believe you guys...

[Should I laugh? Should I help him? Should I push him back in? These were the thoughts that ran rampant in our little heads while watching Tri try to get back in the canoe... Goodtimes... Goodtimes.]

 
Steve: I don't even have to say it.

Duy: Me too, me too! (Puts 3-fingers up) Yeah, sucka!

[Everyone is just exhausted from falling into... I mean, jumping into the water and trying for dear life to get back in the canoe. Who needs life insurance when you have good friends? *sigh* We're still cool- right, Tri?]

 

Steve: Row! Row for dear life!!!
Lisa: I'm rowing as fast as I can!
Tri: First it was rabbits... and now fist... es-ses!???
Duy: Rabbits? Man, if this was 'Nam, I'd have that rabbit roasting in a fire, Dude.

[I don't know. I just don't know. I ran out of stuff to say. Can you blame me? I can't have a clever quirk for everything. The laws of physics just won't allow it. I talked to Newton myself- he said, "No." Sheesh... This page has like 15+ pictures or something.]

 

[Um, remember that wedding ceremony and brief honeymoon that we talked about(link)... or at least, I talked about? Yeah, well I'll let you fill in your own captions here. And... GO!

First... ... ... ..... ......... yeah, and I was like... . .. . ...... .... ... .... Nuh uh!!!.. ....... . . . . ... . ... and .......... ..... .... ........ ................. Mmm hmm,........ .... . .. . . . Quit lying!!! What happened next!?!.. ...... . . . .... ... .... .. *GASP* I won't believe it! ...Suit yourself, but my internet download don't lie.

WhoooWee! I need a fan!!!

You have an unclean mind- 'just filthy... *tisk*tisk*tisk* I'm telling Cathy and Anh Vu! They gonna beat you up!]

 
[This shot was taken with the sun out. Apparently, we haven't seen it in so long that no one knew how to act.

So we just sat there...

...looking at the camera...

...with the sun shining down on our faces...

...not knowing what to do...

...Damnit.]

 
[Clouds!

Yes! CLOUDS!!!

Everybody smile!

Wave your hands or something!

Heck, throw up 3-Fingers or the Peace sign!

Let's celebrate!

Wooohoo!!!]

 
[Question: What do you do after canoeing? You go to Pizza Hut for food. Good, now what do you do after pizza? You take pictures outside because your Asian...]

Sean: But I'm not Asian...

[Yeah, but you speak Japanese, so that's good enough for us.]

 
[Left to Right: Vincent, Jennifer, Vu, Betty, & Jiron.

They may be from OU, but they're still cool...

until we take their coolPoints away!

...yeah, that was lame.]

 
Awwww... They're sooooo cute!

[And so we end our journey with these 3 hard working VASA men taking their well earned rest on the car-ride home... to a place called Stillwater, Oklahoma. And no, they aren't afraid to wear their VASA shirts.

Where will we go from here? Only time will tell...

VASA love. One love for all.]
