Hi Social Fun, it's time to start thinking "Summer" so let's head out and do some white water rafting on the Penobscot River. We will be there June 21-23 (June 21st is the first day of Summer!) and will be rafting on Saturday, June 22.
Call Northern Outdoors at (800)[masked] and tell them you want to reserve for June 22nd. Be sure to mention that you'd like to raft and lodge with the Trailblazers group.
For Lodging call the same number to reserve a campsite, cabin/text, or bunkhouse at Penobscot Outdoor Center. Campsites are $13 per person, per night, plus tax. Cabin/tents are $23 pp/pn for 2 to 4 people. Bunk houses are $25 pp/pn for 4 or 5 people. Here's a link to the Penobscot Outdoor Center where you can see the lodging and other amenities like the restaurant, bar, and giant hot tub. http://www.northernoutdoors.com/site/resort/penobscot-outdoor-center.html
Sat morning we will paddle Class IV & V action in the granite-walled Ripogenus Gorge of the Upper Penobscot River we will paddle through a series of steep drops followed by pools on the Lower Penobscot section. We will have lunch at noon (provided by the rafting company) and continue with rafting the rest of the day!
You can rent wet suit there if you need one.
Bring your underwater camera if you have one!
After the rafting trip we can head to the pavilion where the campsites/cabin tents/bunkhouses are. They have a grill restaurant/bar, beer & wine only, indoor hot tub IN the bar (seriously). And maybe an evening around a campfire.
More information will be coming out as the date gets closer by.
Let me know if you can carpool or if you need a ride.
Members of the Trailblazers Meetup group will also be there!
Looking forward to do some White Water Rafting! Think Summer!!!!!
See you there!
