Let's have some fun and do some whitewater rafting! We'll drive up Friday after work, camp Friday and Saturday nights, and return home on Sunday. We'll be able to see and hear the river from our campsite. This trip is all about having a good time and meeting new people so think of everyone as a new friend! ---SATURDAY--- After breakfast (included) we'll take a stroll through the giant trees! They remind me of the trees in Avatar. They are 1,500 years old and 20 feet thick. This easy walk is 1/2 mile long, paved, and wheelchair accessible. Then we'll head into town for rafting and will have Subway sandwiches, chips, and bottled water for lunch (included). Our 6 mile rafting adventure will begin with the rafting guides giving us a safety talk, then they'll take us down a stretch of the river that has Class III rapids (beginner/intermediate), then shuttle back to the start to take us down the same rapids a second time. Also, we will have a group of adventure addicts doing a Class IV run as well. Everyone must wear a life jacket and helmet (both provided) as well as sturdy footwear - no sandals, crocs, or bare feet permitted. Actual rafting trip length will depend on river's flow rate that day. Probably 2 - 2.5 hours for the class III run and 4+ hours for the class IV. After rafting we'll break for dinner at restaurants (with flush toilets), and we'll be able to take showers (bring your shower supplies). Then we'll meet back at the campsite to roast marshmallows around the campfire and play group games like Catchphrase, Scruples, and Cards Against Humanity! ---SUNDAY--- After breakfast (included) we'll pack up camp and prepare to head home. Optional: a hot springs visit on the way back! It's an amazing spot about 15 minutes from the parking area with tubs of hot water next to the river, plus a rope swing and jump rock. ----MISC---- Kids welcome! Please contact me for minimum weight and age. Sorry, no pets for this meetup. The drive will take 3.5 hours from LA + traffic. Arrival time on Friday begins at 6 pm. I'll be helping everyone connect for carpooling! Each car will decide when and where to leave. We will all be meeting at the campsite. Directions from the market to our campsite will be emailed the day before to everyone registered! ----REGISTER---- To register for this meetup please message me your email address! - Class III: $129.99 + Paypal Fee - Class IV: Message me your email address and "Class IV!"
