What a Thrill

I had no expectations as to what this white water rafting was all about. I had been tubing before but that was when I was in college. That was a very long time ago. I was a little nervous, excited and really wondered how I would react to this venture. When my girfriend and I immediately raised our hands when asked who would want to sit in the first row seats of the raft, the guides looked at us and said, This is going to be interesting".

All I could do was laugh and smile wondering what he knew that I did not. When we finally settled in and were about to hit the first challenge, Big Momma, I yelled and screamed and then proceed to fall into the middle of the boat, and could not move, felt like a turtle on its shell, Janet fell out of the boat. Our guide Josh was very expert in getting people back up into their seats either from inside the boat or outside. He was a fantastic guide. He had wonderful stories and loved to talk.

The lunch was also very good and expertly organized and presented to so many people. By the end of the trip I was so excited I was exhausted. I love all the pictures and was amazed at how great the actions shots were captured. I will definitely be back for another challenge…watch out Josh here come the J x 2.

All the guides and staff were very pleasant and helpful no matter what kind of questions was asked. There was always a smile on their faces. This experience was one I have wanted to do for a very long time; it was on my bucket list.

Thank you so very much for making it so memorable. J (aka Turtle) & J will be back!!!
Thank you again Northern Outdoors
