What a great time rafting with Sheltowee. Granted, the Cumberland is not one of your whitewater daredevil rivers at the present depth, but it really didn't matter. Chasidy, aka Mama Bear, was the perfect guide -- kept us off the rocks, in the raft and laughing the whole way. The scenery is spectacular, safety was taken seriously and the day couldn't have been better. My only disappointment was being towed the last five miles because of calm water. I would happily have paddled out. Still, the camaraderie in the raft made up for that tiny glitch in an otherwise perfect day. And the calm waters allowed us to stop and dip in for a swim. So there's your silver lining.
As for lunch being not so great as other reviewers have mentioned? Well, it is what it is. It was a decent sub, cookie, apple, chips and water. It had been sitting in the cooler in the raft for several hours, but where else would it be? It wasn't that bad, and quite frankly, I didn't make the trip for the lunch. I can eat lunch anywhere. I made the trip for the experience and the day in the outdoors. I was not disappointed, and I will definitely come back again. I will be grinning for a long, long time with memories of yesterday. Thanks, Mama Bear and Papa Smurf. It was quite a day.
