New Changing Rooms Almost Finished!

Just wanted to touch base here and let everyone know that Outdoor Adventures, Inc. is getting very close to finishing the new changing room facilities!  We have been working very hard on the new building and think that it will be a great improvement from the previous building.  Not only will there be five new changing rooms, but also more restrooms, showers, and sinks.  This means more room to change, shorter lines to use the restrooms, and an even greater experience for our returning guests!

Check out the new changing rooms on Flickr!

Around the Outpost

A lot of times, people who live in amazingly beautiful areas such as the Great Smoky Mountains start to take the beauty for granted after a while.  Then, every now and again, a beautiful scenery catches the eye while driving to work.   Outdoor Adventures is so lucky to be located in such a beautiful area.  Tucked right into the mountains, resting along the Big Pigeon River, and easily accessible, Outdoor Adventures is not only FUN, but also a BEAUTIFUL place to visit!

Here are a few photos of the outpost in Hartford, TN...
(These photos were taken in late fall, so keep in mind summer has a lot more green!)

Our Guides Never Quit!

You know you love what you do for a living when your not "on the clock", but doing exactly what you would do if you were.  That's how rafting is for a lot of us out here on the Pigeon River.  When our guides aren't working, they're out running other rivers gaining valuable experience and skills that help them on their home river.

Tomorrow is the last Cheoah River release of the year and all the guides who are still around are making the trek to Robbinsville, NC to run the class V river!  Even though the weather report says 30 degrees and snowing, we are all totally up for the experience!  To all Cheoah paddlers...have FUN and be SAFE!

A couple of our guides going down the Cheoah made a record for the first raft to successfully run the middle line of Bear Creek Falls!  Yay!  Go Brooke and Creech!
