summer adventures continue

Ocoee River, Tennessee

Having rafted only once before in my life, I was a bit apprehensive about this adventure.  My memories of a similar experience in Colorado from nearly 15 years ago are laced with stress and fear.  However, there was no way that I was opting out of this when both of my siblings and their spouses, as well as my 50+ aunt were signed up for the adventure -- pride was on my side.

Awesome.  Really, that's the one word.  AWESOME.

We booked through the Ocoee Adventure Center (on a recommendation) and had the fab Mark Miller as our guide on the same river used for the Atlanta olympics;  he gave us lots of adventure and fun.  I would do it again. And again. And again. And again.

Young One and I are now visiting a dear friend in Boston.  It's a long overdue visit that I saved for the last of our Stateside travels.  Good Times.


  1. Looks fantastic! I will have to bookmark this and do this with the boys when they get a little older. Glad you are having so much fun!

  2. That is an adventure indeed!
