White Water Rafting

After a long break from reckless / adventerous activities, we ( JJ, Niranjan, David, Sly, Timir, Kastubh, Abhishek and myself ) finally set off to the French Broad River. The overtly enthusiastic Niranjan had contacted Nantahala Outdoor Center to arrange this exhilarating ride. He got group discounts for 35$ a person. (Hmm .. I still got to pay him ). The location is a 3 Hour drive from Greensboro.

Everyone Survived

The NOC guides mentioned that they offers special discounts for volunteers helping maintain the cleanliness of the river ( We did see some trash .. car tyres, plastic wraps and the like on the river banks ).
