16 Jun 11 Rookie Rafting
My girlfriend and I had always wanted to try white water rafting and when we finally got the chance…we jumped at it.
We could have never asked for a better experience than the one that we gained with Northern Outdoors. From the friendly staff, the great accommodations, the delicious craft beer and of course the rafting trip…it was truly a great weekend.
While the weather wasn’t the greatest the day that we went rafting, it was rather appropriate as for first timers, having a bit of a grittier day enhanced the experience. We also could not have asked for a better guide. Dave did the best job anyone could do with our inexperienced group, and kept us working and motivated through the rain and cold. Every one of us left the river knowing we will be rafting again.
Heading back to The Forks Resort, there was a sense of camaraderie and accomplishment throughout the bus that continued through lunch and as everyone shared a beer (or two). My girlfriend and I were just upset that it was Sunday and we had to make the trek back to Boston as we truly were not ready for the trip to end.
All in all we were very happy with all aspects of the vacation and have not stopped encouraging our friends to do it themselves. We have already started planning our next trip and seriously can’t wait!
Thank you Northern Outdoors!
