Tom Sawyer Float Trip July 26, 2009

July 31st, 2009

Feedback from a family rafting trip (Granny, Poppy and their 3 grand daughters) on the Tom Sawyer section of the South Fork American.

Hi Gregg,

We were so glad to have the opportunity to raft with All Outdoors, after our 30 year break from rafting!!!

We had the time of our lives on our Tom Sawyer Float Trip (July 26, 2009)! As you know, we were sure our 5 year old granddaughter would have a great time, but we were a little concerned about our 9 and 11 year old granddaughters having enough of a thrill. Not to worry….all 5 of us had a ball!

Our guides Annie and Erin were terrific and kept us on the move with kayaks, inner tubes, blackberries and foolin’ around. The day was varied and, for our first-timers, the rapids were exciting. So what if our 11 year old and I went through Barking Dog backward and paused on a rock in our bright blue kayak where everyone on the river could see us….we were stroking in unison!

We believe there was one special reason for our fabulous day…Erin! She made it happen for us from the moment little Nicole maneuvered to sit next to her on the bus…it was that instant. Her love of kids and of the river carried the day. Each invention was more fun than the last…even the cookies and that wasn’t even on the water. She is amazing!

Our thanks to Annie and Erin and your crew, and our congratulations on providing such a great program.
