First Trip of the 2019 Season

Our first trip of the 2019 season took place today, March 12. The Neely family joined us for a PM Racecourse trip. Because the weather was threatening, we dressed them in wetsuits, with rain gear over that. Weather-wise, it’s a little early, but we wanted to accommodate folks on Spring Break.

The Racecourse was running at 700 cubic feet a second today, which makes it Class 3 in difficulty, and a level that anyone can handle. We offer two Racecourse runs a day. One is at 9 AM, and the other at 1 PM. These trips meets at the County Line River Access, which is where the trip ends. We leave your car there, and take you to where the trip begins. Our first trip of the 2019 season!
