13th Annual Adams Gauley River Trip

WhooHoo! Gauley Season is less than 2 1/2 months away. And you know what that means! Time for our Annual Gauley River adventure. Once again we are holding it during GauleyFest weekend. If your coming plan on Thursday Sept 18th thru Sunday Sept 22nd. Looks like the NPS has bought the Wood's Ferry access so it looks like private shuttles should become a whole lot easier. Hopefully they will have something ready in time for this season.

Typical fun at the put in
What better way to spend a weekend than it beautiful Southern West Virginia. Gauley Season as all whitewater enthusiasts know is a world class whitewater adventure. With 100 rapids in a 24 miles stretch, Boaters from all over the world descent on Summersville, WV in the fall coinciding with the drawdown of Summersville Lake for the winter season.
Frequent carnage on the Upper Gauley (not our raft)

Sometimes the butt pucker is the only thing keeping you in the raft

Guarenteed releases of 2800cft brings the famed Upper Gauley back to life.

Space is limited to about 8 people this year because we only plan on bringing the 14ft Riken and the high adventure 12ft "To Boatly Go. ." raft.

Notice the "Logo" and "Theme" on a 2003 trip OOPS!
I haven't gotten to run the small raft too much in recent years because we always have a large group. I really love the HUMUNGOUS ride in the teeny boat.

Drop me an email as soon as you know if you plan on going with us this year.
