whitewater class V survivors club

We met Ali our guide for the day at the Arkansas river tours center and went through the safety rules and how to hold on safely. We were driven in a mini bus to Pinicle rock recreation area were we got on the raft for our class 1-3 rapid tour. We saw a beaver and a beavers dam and a baby big horn sheep. Then we stopped for a lunch that consisted of cookies, build your own sandwitches and tortilla chips. Then we had finished and set off to Royal Gorge where the class 4-5 rapids were! you are supposed to be 16 or over to ride the harder rapids but because we had a guide that had 20 years of experience we were allowed to do it. Some of the class 5 rapids were called soda fountain, boat eater and lethal weapon!!!!!!! At this very moment we are at the Windmill resturant eating our appetizer onion rings and breaded mushrooms awaiting our meals, yum yum please post your comments.
