    I showed on location at 10 am sat and you already left, I did look for open spots in 2 other companies, found the afternoon trip for 79 dollars difficult section.... But, that was not scary, those who sit in the front half will get wet, second half just splash, the guide can make it easy for you or can make you fall out of the raft, we ask for the second, 2 fell, not me, was fun, I think we can do it with my raft almost same size, and take advantage of being with other people, we can do easy class 2 and 3 in Leigh valley in PA, can we plan this some time in August? I will share photos after I pay for pictures..

    Hi, I did some research and rafting even though looks definitely like a fun event it is too violent for my needs :-) I will sign up for the Lower River half day once we arrive - so I will start with you guys but spend only half a day on more mellow portion of the river :-)
