White Salmon white water rafting

Summer is almost over and so is the white water rafting. Most rafting end in August so this is now or wait for next year. Go online to http://www.blueskyoutfitters.com/whitesalmon-rafting.php and book the SUNDAY 8/24/2014 for the 2:30PM timeslot. I just booked and there are plenty of slots left. The cost is $65 + $4.55 tax. Just pay online. The location is about 1 hour drive from Portland. We can meet at Starbuck and carpool or just meet there at least 10 min before 2:30PM as recommended. All the details you can find on the webpage. The class-5, 14-foot Husum drop is optional. Here is the itinerary:

We'll meet you at BZ Corners. Here we will hand out wetsuits, booties, life jackets, paddles, and helmets and get the chance to meet your guides for the day. After getting suited up, we will walk across the street where our river journey begins. The guides will go over river safety skills and other things you'll need to know for the day as well as answer any questions you may have. After going over paddle techniques on dry land, we're off! The river trip itself is about 3 hours long. Start out in the middle of the most challenging rapid, and your adventure begins. Before we reach the waterfall, we will stop at a beach along the river to teach everyone what to do to stay in the boat. You will have the option of getting out of the raft before we go over. This is the highlight of our trip, where we will have a photographer taking pictures of your plunge. Then, we'll tackle the class III rapids of the lower section and view some of the most beautiful sights on the river. We will end our trip at Northwestern Lake and then shuttle you back up to your vehicle.

    I changed the meet and greet at Fubonn to 12:15PM. We will leave at 12:30PM sharp. My car can take 3 people for those who want to carpool, else we will all meet there from 2:00-2:30PM at 1255 Hwy 141 White Salmon, WA 98672. The forecast for Sunday is 90+ so bring your sunscreen and cool off in the cold river.
