My two kids and I (they are 11 and 13), went with HME on the Nolichucky River for a day white water rafting. We had a good, fun time. The river wasn't too cold and the weather was perfect. The guides were very knowledgeable about the river and took everybody's safety to heart. Our raft flipped over (nothing we could do to prevent it) and the guides were right there making sure everyone was ok. One of the other rafts/guide picked up my daughter who had made it to shore up river from where we all were. After checking everyone over and making sure no one was seriously hurt, our guide helped us back in the raft and we were on our way. Due to the safety briefing that we had before we even made it to the put in point really helped a lot.
The guides made the trip fun, even stopping in a couple different places to let us swim if we wanted too. The lunch was nice too. My kids loved it - stopping on a rock formation and eating lunch WHICH the guides put out for us. Sure we had to make our own sandwiches but who cares. The rest of the trip was uneventful and the Nolichucky River and gorge are beautiful. We will definitely go again and use HME!!!! Thanks Lombardi, Alex and Parker!!! You guys rock!!!!
