19 Jul 12 Stepping out of my comfort zone leads to the experience of a lifetime!
This was my first whitewater rafting trip ever, and I can't believe that I waited this long to try it! I've never been much of an adrenaline junkie or a risk taker before, but I wanted to step out of the box and try something new. My girlfriend has rafted before and suggested it as a nice getaway for the two of us. It was AMAZING!. Josh, our guide, was great and put everyone at ease. He stressed the fun we were going to have and took complete control of the trip. I felt completely safe and secure with him, and that allowed me to relax and enjoy the entire trip. The exhilaration of the upper Kennebec was only equalled by the beauty and relaxation of the lower.
The picnic lunch was outstanding and the facilities were awesome as well. We combined our rafting trip with camping, and the result was an experience that I can't wait to repeat. We're already planning to come back and tackle the Penobscot. Thanks Northern Outdoors for opening my eyes to a whole new kind of fun!
