Also, we have formed a partership with NARR and now offer rafting trips on the New and Gauley in West Virginia!

But if you're looking for way more fun in the summer, come down here to NC and we'll get you all in duckies and run the Nantahala!

Hey, Just read the comment you left for me on my page! Congratulations on the move! Rafting makes a great graduation gift; and we now have a partnership with NARR in West Virginia. If you're looking for a trip on the New this spring or any of our rivers down here in the SE, just let me know.

Also, we do team building and have leadership programs using outdoor activities as a framework. If you send me your email address, I'll send you what we've got. Perhaps you can collaborate with us or the program we're using to expand leadership training programs with whitewater rafting, ropes courses, or other such programs.

Hope to hear from you soon!
