Have you ever done this?

Ryan Davis, the executive director of Boys and Girls Clubs of Kootenai County, enjoyed a great day of floating on the Coeur d'Alene River with, son, Sam, and wife, Jame' -- until the arrived at the Snake Pit. That's when Jame' Lou realized that she'd left her key fob in the car upriver. Three. Miles. Up. River. In 92 degree heat. Oh well, shrugged Ryan, who is always up for an adventure. There's no cryin' in Coeur d'Alene River floating. So he began the hike back, in flipflops and shorts. Afterward, he acknowledged: "I am not in shirtless running shape."
