Within the last week, Adventures in Whitewater launched it's first commercial overnight of the 2017 season. This also happened to be our first ever commercial overnight on one of my favorite stretches of river- the mighty North Platte!
As one of the staff of this overnight, I got the opportunity to guide a boat down this stretch, and take part in the festivities that are included in the overnight trips.
We all met at the put-in at 11:30, and got everyone outfitted. We set each guest up with a wetsuit, PFD, and helmet, and got on the river. Now, due to snow on the road to our normal takeout, we had to cut the normal trip duration in half- we did a 10.5 mile stretch instead of an 18 mile stretch. This allowed us to take our time- we camped right by the river at a campsite I've started calling "forest". We unloaded the gear boat
