Tim Made My 60th Birthday!

By: Cathy M.

I chose whitewater rafting to celebrate my 60th birthday. What a blast! I enjoyed the experience so much. The staff was professional, kind, patient, but adventurous. Tim, our guide, was cool and very much into the outdoor adventure. Everyone in my group had a memorable experience thanks to him!
