Rafa G. from Venice, CA went down the Merced on May 29th with a group of four. He got back to us with some feedback and sweet video of their trip:
As usual, we had a fantastic time rafting with AO. Our guide, Joe, was great. I also had the chance to chat with a few of the other guides on the bus ride to the put-in point, and they just seemed like a really cool group of guys. They were all handing out sweaters on the river for people who were unprepared for the cold, including me and my group. The food was great and well laid-out – the hot chocolate was an especially nice touch on such a cold day.
Yes, feel free to contact me about trips next spring. Cherry Creek is still in my sights – just trying to find the time to hopefully squeeze it in this year.
It’s best viewed if you up the resolution to 720p, otherwise, the video is grainy and blurry. Please share the video with Joe, as I know he was interested in seeing it. I may post more video of the rafting alone and will let you know if I have time to do it.
