21 Jul 12 Awesome Vacation!
A few weekends ago, 6 of my friends and I drove 5 and 1/2 hours to go rafting on the Penobscot. We were a little hesitant at first since white water rafting seems extreme and I heard many rumors about there being giant spiders in the cabins. However, we did not anticipate having one of the best vacations ever!
The bunk houses were excellent; not a spider in site! The staff at the lodge was very friendly, and we even ended up booking our cabin for an extra night to extend the fun. The rafting excursion itself was incredible. As seven 23-26 year old girls from Boston we thought our guide would be a little off-put by us but Luke was great! We couldn't have asked for someone better to coach us along the river. The best part (besides surfing and the waterfall) was when we saw a moose! He was just taking a bath in the river as we all drifted by, without a care in the world.
I would absolutely do this trip again and we might even make it an annual vacation! Thanks 🙂
