Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3y-bowhXqdQ

Ticket: $68 (includes tax) they dont offer group discounts on saturday. FYI... Sunday price is $60 (includes tax).Rates Include: all necessary rafting equipment, life jacket, free parking, shuttle service to/from the river & professional river guides.

Time: 8:15am (meet at Macy's Parking - 500 W Germantown Pike, Plymouth Meeting, PA)

Transportation: We will rendezvous at plymouth meeting mall (Macy's Parking) and carpool from there to 1519 Pennsylvania 903  Jim Thorpe, PA 18229

Lunch: Bring your own lunch that should be wrapped in ziplock (watch the video above) or buy lunch at Poconos  (hoagie choice of turkey or veg, bag of chips and bottle of water) for $8. If you are bringing lunch - no alcohol and no glass bottles.

Clothing - Bring your bathing suit, shorts, rivershoes or old sneakers. Always remember to dress for the weather. Bring eyeglass straps if you wear glasses. Remember to bring your sunscreen. Never forget a towel and change of dry clothes, but don’t bring them with you on the raft. Otherwise you’ll have a wet towel and no dry clothes at the end of the day. Leave them in your car and get them after the trip. NO FLIP FLOPS & NO BARE FEET!

Having done this once before, i would suggest that we carry extra water bottles, light snacks and refreshment. Paddling for 2-3 hrs will require you to be hydrated.

Each raft will carry 4-5 people. The guides will be alongside in kayaks (ref video above). Its gonna be exciting and a lot of fun. any questions, pls post in comments below.

      also for June we are limited to the following dates - June 1 thru 15, 22 & 23rd. There's a ballgame meetup on 22nd. Unless ppl want to do this on sunday 23rd, which i think is unlikely, our only option for june is the 15th

      I'll do 15th. Might not be able to make it on the 27th.
