This is a day white water rafting trip with Superior Whitewater Rafting Company. It is approximately a 2-1/2 hour ride on the St. Louis River beginning in Carleton, MN. We need to be there by 1:30 p.m. We will put in around 2:00 p.m. I did this run last year and we had a blast! There is nothing to fear – you need not be an expert. There are 4-5 people per raft and we have expert guides that help us out as we need it all the way down. They give us a couple of breaks on the way down. You will be able to swim and chat with others. Then we get bussed back to the beginning.
The total cost of the rafting trip is $40. Transportation from the Twin Cities and food will be extra. For those interested in having supper on the way home, we will be stopping at Tobies in Hinckley. The Rafting Company offers a refund only if severe weather or inadequate water levels force cancellation of the trip. With all the snow we have now, we should have lots of water and a great run!
Last year we were able to park our cars at REI in Roseville for the day and carpool up. I understand that this may not be an option this year. I am open to another place to safely park your car for the day so we can save some gas.
I have to send the Rafting company a check for the total amount, therefore, I need to recieve a check from all those planning to go by June15.
Trip size is limited to 25 people, but may be able to accommodate more. The first 25 checks received get a place on the raft. Contact Karen for the address to send your deposit to.
Estimated cost: $40 plus gas/food. Deposit: $40. Max trip size: 25.
