World Famous Gauley River Gorge Adventure (Class 3-6 voted #2 USA, 5 in World)

Date: 09/14/2014 -- 7:10 A.M. (Safety brief, gear setup, etc)
* We will need to drive up Saturday the 13th to stay the night nearby
to raft adventure location.*

*I received a drastic discount by booking this trip in advance! If you call Adventure West Virginia and give them the reservation # of[masked] (last name Davis), you can book w/our group for 50% off making the trip only $99 each which includes full day trip and meal.  You can also opt to rent river jacket and wet suit for only $20 extra, well worth it!

Here are the links as well if you wish to see the website w/the deal dates and contact info as I listed above....there is also a lot of other links to find out info about the area and river too.

This link will give you information on what to wear for a late summer/early fall trip of this nature; however if you don't have everything needed they will rent you a wetsuit and raft jacket on site for additional $20.
