Where: Upper Gauley River, Hico, WV (Phone: 800-822-1FUN)
Join TYJP and other outdoor enthusiasts on the Upper Gauley River, arguably some of the best white water rafting on the East Coast, for the weekend of October 10, 2003. You do not need to be an expert paddler (although it is recommended that you have some paddling experience) to enjoy the Upper Gauley River. However, the Upper Gauley River contains several "Class 5+" rapids, so you should not be afraid of getting wet. On the bright side, in the past few years that we have been doing this trip , no one from our group has actually fallen in! For those that are adventurous, there is a cliff that many people jump from.
For more information about the Upper Gauley River and Mountain River Tours, the outfitter we have been using for the past several years, please visit MRT's web site:
You must RSVP with Mountain River Tours quickly, as the available spaces are filling up fast. Do not wait until the last minute. See below for details. Depending on weather conditions, you may also want to think about renting a wet suit (or bring your own).
We will be camping in the Mountain River Tour's campsite Friday night, October 10; however, there are hotels in the area (approximately 30-45 minutes away) for those who don't want to rough it. The campsite is nicely equipped, with modern restrooms and showers. We are tentatively scheduled for the 7:30AM rafting trip on Saturday, October 11; however, depending on demand, we may be bumped to a later time instead, or possibly even earlier if demand requires it (hence the need to RSVP as soon as possible; see below). Both breakfast and lunch will be supplied by MRT. Based upon weather and other factors, we will decide whether we will continue to camp Saturday night, or head to a hotel instead. We will then head home on Sunday morning, October 12.
Please contact Mountain River Tours directly, at 1-800-822-1FUN (1386). To ensure your reservation is entered correctly for our group, use our reservation number, 29802; the trip is under the name of "Michael Cohen". Please be prepared to supply your credit card number for a charge of $105.44 (this includes the $99.00 base cost, plus taxes and fees); we were able to get a $35 discount as this is the last weekend the Gauley will be open.
Once you have made your reservation with Mountain River Tours, please send a note to Michael Cohen ([EMAIL PROTECTED]) including the following information:
* Are you interested in carpooling up to West Virginia
