|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.
