Let's go to Columbus and play on the $30 million dollar white water course. The river course is fun with 2 wild places. If you swim it is an easy get out.The attached picture shows the wildest of the two places and easy to portage if you have a change of heart but I'll encourage everyone to try it, There is a video of me swimming this rapid on my Facebook page.
If you have never done anything like this before well here is the best chance you'll ever have to learn. It is wild and as safe as it gets. it isn't technical just straight forward and keep on paddling.
Wearing of PFDs is mandatory by order of the City of Columbus and enforced. Skirts a definite, Yes. Helmets are a good idea for safety and I will be taking 4 spare helmets for those who may need to borrow one. Please RSVP with me personally if you need one.
You can read about it online or you can just do and play. I will be going down Friday afternoon, staying at the Days Inn and returning on Sunday. Probably leaving after one run of the course Sunday.
The Days Inn is a nice (not great) hotel but it is the closest one to the river (almost walking distance). There is a Waffle House across the street from the hotel and some great and inexpensive places to eat a few blocks from the hotel. On Friday night they block off Broadway Street and have FREE live music so bring a folding chair. Saturday they have a sidewalk sale of foods and crafts.
DAYS INN info, I have blocked 10 non-smoking rooms at $55.68 each per night.DAYS INN info, I have blocked 10 non-smoking rooms at $55.68 each per night.
