LET ME SAY TWO WORDS: Family reunion. Let me say five more: Four boys, plus a spare. This ain’t “The Waltons,” folks. This is the Carlsons, from Cordova, Alaska, we’re on a river rafting trip during our 2001 family reunion, and we take no prisoners. Especially boy prisoners, we’ve got enough of them already, so many that my cousin, Hank, says upon departure, “You boys better hang on, that falls up ahead is called Dead Man’s Falls,” and someone else says, “Dead BOY’S Falls,” and nobody argues. Cathy even says, “We might have to sacrifice one to the god of the falls,” and Matt isn’t quite sure if she’s kidding.
