So Dave, Nate, Tom (Sgt), and myself planned a small trip to WV for rafting.

Sat we rolled down.

We met in Flat Rock at Kate's kitchen, a great small home cooking spot for breakfast.

Then we hit the road... destination, Hocking Hills for a camping night...

Looks like a great time. I've been wanting to go rafting again for a while. Did the yough in PA twice. Want to go back and try the "Duckie" inflatable kayaks through them.

When you were in the raft you didn't wear your leathers? Fonzie wore his leathers when he jumped the shark. Did you at least do the potato potato potato sound like the guys on South Park? ��
looks like a good time. Camping off the bike, there's nothing like it.

What did you like better? The rapids or the surfing?

Mudpuppy

I liked the rapids better. Never knew what to expect. At some points we were completely underwater. Very adrenaline fueled stuff. I'd do it again in a minute.

Gas Man
09-04-2015, 01:01 AM
Yeah I'm with ya. Rapids were better. Surfing is just endurance of how much water can the boat take and how much will you drink.

Mudpuppy
09-04-2015, 12:49 PM
Plus rapids you can kinda see what's coming up and how long it will be. Surfing it's like being in a toilet bowl that might be plugged - not sure if you are going down or round and round or getting out.

Gas Man

Yeah that's a good analogy
