We're rafting!! This is an all-day trip that starts in Lotus, CA, at 10am and ends around 4:30pm. We MUST be on time as they do not wait for late-comers!! This is a whitewater trip, so there are Class II and III rapids along the river, and the water is extra high and fast this year!

**TO SIGN UP** Comment below or message me with your email address. I'll send you an email with a payment link and instructions on how to register. The company will only hold these unpaid spots for me until May 6th.
