*** SOLD OUT ***


In the Victorian era, extreme sports were limited to teatime without doilies, writing witty satires about earnesty, and riding a penny-farthing down a mild incline. Today's Groupon would shock such staid sensibilities: for $17, you get a two-hour Blaster whitewater-rafting trip down the Kern River from River's End Rafting & Adventure Company (a $35 value).

Featured in Bakersfield Life for its summertime thrills, River's End and its certified and experienced rafteraunteurs lead thrill-seeking water wanderers on fun, exciting, and safe adventures down the Kern River. During the two-hour Blaster trip, rapids-romantics begin their journey at the mouth of the Kern Canyon and encounter Class-II (moderate) and Class-III (moderately difficult) rapids, suitable for voyagers of all skill levels. River’s End’s energetic adventure guides will navigate and talk about the river’s wildlife and propensity to gurgle ‘70s lite-rock as rafters head down to Lake Ming on a 3.5-mile jaunt (float time is 1Hr). The tour departs four times daily and is suitable for groups, families, and gung-ho whippersnappers aged 6 and up.

You can coordinate with each other for rides,

Or you can meet at David's Place (my place)

at 7:30AM on Saturday morning for Carpool

Carpooling from David's Place: Since we are camping overnight, you'll need a safe place to leave your car overnight for the weekend.  To be extra safe, let's carpool from my house .  I live in a safe neighborhood in Monterey Park and there's no problem with overnight street parking at my place.  I'll email everybody my address for carpool a couple days before the event.

Let's plan on meeting at my place at 7:30AM and leave by 8AM .  It's a 2-hour drive to get to Bakersfield.  So let's try to get there by 10AM, have a big Brunch, some time to set up camp and settle in at 12pm at our campground before our White-Water Rafting Expedition at 2PM.

Be sure to save my cell # (626)[masked] to have handy with you in case you need to reach me for anything.  Emotional support provided for an extra fee.

    Wonderful...thanks David & JinLee! Since the event is closed out, I can't change my status to "RAFT."

    May 3, 2011

  • David

    Krystal & Lily, we worked out an exclusive special deal for our group where you still get the deal for $17 instead of full price at $35. We've reserved the company's whole service for that day, so they will only be serving us on June 28th. As long as they know you're with us, you're fine. But you should make a comment about it where you're asked for your GroupOn code.

    May 3, 2011

  • Lily

    I have the same question as Krystal does. Where can I find my groupon code?

    May 3, 2011

  • CHARLIE

    Thank you Paul for your questions and a great one too. Entourage had done our due dilligence and already have our reservation in place for June 18th. The outfitter does require one more step for the reservation. Please stay tune tonight for final instructions and have your Groupon Code ready for this final step. This is gonna be one Rocking Trip! Entourage Yeeha-ing down the river... not just 10 or 20 but 75 Entourage! "Lets Rock"!!!

Since we started organizing for this group a year ago, we all the same philosophy for running a great group, and we stuck to our core values: quality events, meaningful connections, value for the time you choose to spend with Entourage, and last but not least, an excellent team of good people on our side.

    This is a prime example of 3 of the most dedicated organizers on all of www.meetup.com . Which organization out there has the pull to attract 50+ people to an event in a matter of less than 17 hours? The amount of time, energy and effort that goes into planning an event of this caliber is astounding...a huge round of applause for the Big Three, Kungpow, David, and Jinny! Bravo!!!
