So my husband wanted to go white water rafting on a more adventurous river this trip, we had already done the Watuga, and I thought it was great, but he wanted more excitement. 18 years ago he took his oldest daughter with HME and they both still rave about the Nolichucky. I was a little hesitant, more like scared to death! We arrived and got on the bus, stopped for a little breakfast and continued to our river drop off. Erika was to be our guide, and now that it is over, I would ride ANY river with her!!! My heart was pounding as we entered the first rapid, my hands clenched on a death grip on my paddle, I was concentrating so hard on her instructions, it was great! I looked over at my family, huge smiles and laughter at the cold water splashing over them. One rapid after another, Erika guided us through safely and efficiently and made the best of every rapid. My girls rode the "bull" which means to straddle the front of the raft, 9,10 and 13 got the ride of their lives over "big eddy" and we got to "surf" , I relaxed and really started to take in every moment. If you want a great family experience, one that 20 years from now, everyone will still talk about, then HME and the Nolichucky is the one, and if your lucky Erika will be your guide!
