“Bob & Pati's Verde Adventure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2003

We have gone down a lot of rivers in the USA. Oregon, Alaska, Washington, Colorado, and of course, California. I grew up on the Kern River. The Verde is one of the best, with a special attraction of hot springs to rest in along the way. Our last trip was during an epic high-water season, and there were some fools on the river. By fools, I mean people who had no experience or right to be on the river at such a dangerous time. It is right to assume the raft company that rents to these folks couldn't care less about their clients or the people who have to rescue them. Waivers are easily dismissed in courts anyway. Plan ahead!! Bring food, water & an emergency blanket for warmth, just in case.The Verde is a mystical water experience unusual in such a desert setting. Cherish the experience and beware of the babes in the woods, (or in this case, the babes on the beach in the midst of hypothermia.) And plan to pick up at least one 'Gumby' who got lost or was stranded. Good deeds always get rewarded.
