IS THIS YOUR FIRST TIME?

This trip is a good introduction to whitewater rafting with a lot of floating and  the rapids are fairly easy. There are two-man and three-to-five-man rafts available and each raft is unguided so you determine your own pace. The cost includes all food, all rafting gear, transportation to the headwaters, the transport of all your camping gear to the site, and an evening party with music and dancing on Saturday night.
The Upper Cache is a class 3 whitewater run through a volcanic canyon, accessible only by water. See more info at: http://www.gotwhitewater.com/ />
Saturday: Drive up, park your vehicle, load overnight gear on truck, load self, small cooler for raft and water guns onto bus, get driven up to starting point, listen to instructions, get in raft and rowrowrowyourboat... (lunch provided on the boat), swim, squirt each other, get out of raft at destination, get gear, pitch tent, drink free Margaritas, eat appetizers, dinner, join dance party, dance under the light show, sleep.
Sunday: pack up gear, load onto trucks, eat breakfast, load small cooler and self onto bus, take bus to new start point, get in boat and row again, have lunch, squirt each other, swim, watergun war, get out at finish point, find gear, buy pictures and shirts, drive home.

RIVER MENU (The food is plentiful and delicious)
Appetizers: Tons of treats served right after you get off the boat, including MARGARITAS! **Please bring ID to camp for free margaritas until they run out.  (Note:  not sure if they are still serving margaritas anymore, so don't count on this for sure).
Dinner: Mesquite grilled NY steak, a free range breast of chicken, or a veggie burger, with an Idaho baked potato, sweet corn on the cob, pasta, sauteed mushrooms.
Lunch (Sat & Sun): Turkey or ham, jack and cheddar cheese, fresh sourdough bread, chips.

    had a great time despite the long walk:)

    July 22, 2013

    • Stan H

      Yeah, that was a bit of a hike, but the quiet was worth it.

    My name is Josey Summer. I am missing a teal blue tent bag with a zipper down the middle and handles. There were 2 labels on the bag. One label was silver duct tape with my first name (Josey) and the other label was colorful duct tape with my last name (Summer).
    The bag contained a tent, tent poles, a sleeping pad, tennis shoes and some clothes. I really appreciate your help.
    Thank you[masked]

    July 22, 2013

    • Stan H

      Hey Josey, sorry to hear about the bags. Hopefully whoever took your bags calls Whitewater to return them.

    Got Friday camping! Leaving from Concord, can pick-up/car pool one other person, no set leave time.... let me know if anyone is interested!

    July 17, 2013

  • Stan H

    A last minute cancellation has opened up a spot on this trip. First person to contact me can take it.

    July 16, 2013

    • Stan H

      The spot has been taken.

      July 16, 2013

  • Anne

    Hi Stan, I wrote to you through your meetup message about two things. Let me know if you received it, please.

    July 16, 2013

  • Michelle C

    Got it, thanks. Do you have me down for friday or do I need to call them?

    July 15, 2013

    • Stan H

      Sorry Michelle. Hard to keep track of 45 rafters plus all the cancellations and flakey ones. The trip details above mentions overnight camping and the extra $29 fee. You only paid $149 so I assumed you changed your mind on Friday night camping.

      July 16, 2013

    • Stan H

      Michelle, text me if you still want to go on Friday night.

      July 16, 2013

  • Stan H

    Thanks Phil. I had you down for paying for both rafting and Friday night camping/etc, but didn't show an RSVP on this meetup. I thought you were part of my evite group. Thanks for the correction. You're all set.

    July 16, 2013

  • Phil

    Hi Stan,

    I am planning on being there Friday night (and I paid you in addition to the rafting trip). Let me know if you have any questions.

    July 16, 2013

  • Stan H

    BTW, I have the following people who paid for Friday night camping:

    Josey Summer
    Rose Quinones
    Lexine Alpert
    Vivian Snyder

    July 16, 2013

  • Stan H

    Is there a one day raft only no overnight option ?

    June 12, 2013

    • Stan H

      Works for me. Not sure how you will find me in the crowd though.

      June 13, 2013

    • Stan H

      Might have to hunt down and find my tent once I figure out which one I am going to bring. That is if you get there before I take down my tent. Any idea what time you arrive?

      June 13, 2013

  • Lisa A.

    If anyone can not make it, let me know. I did this last year and had a blast.

    June 10, 2013

    • Stan H

      I have an extra spot for you if you want it.

      June 12, 2013

  • Stan H

    Latest status:

    42 rafters are going
    15 will be joining us Friday night for dinner, late night movie and first choice camping spots. I will pick a spot where we can all congregate together.

    For those who are joining us Friday night maybe we can put together a spreadsheet to see where everyone is coming from and what time you can leave so I know when to expect you and maybe we can drive up in a convoy (so nobody gets lost in the dark).

    Only 6 weeks to go.

    June 8, 2013

    • Stan H

      I will probably leave early Friday too. I have a couple of friends coming from Alameda as well so we can see if we can figure something out.

      June 12, 2013

    Rose, I just received your payment. Thanks.

  • Stan H

    Wakeup slackers!!!!! Only a handful of you have contacted me so far (thanks to those who did) so to avoid any more effort on my part I changed the rest of your RSVP's to Not Going.

  • Gary C.

    Sorry, Stan! Not sure I can make this due to some unforeseen family issues. I don't want to take anyone's spot. :(

    April 16, 2013

  • Stan H

    If you are NOT going please change your RSVP.
