FLOATING THE LEHIGH RIVER AT JIM THORPE, PA

Six Brave Souls vs the Mighty Lehigh River

 

 

ON JULY 20TH, SIX (6) BIKE CLUB MEMBERS DEPARTED ANN’S CHOICE AT 7:15 FOR A DAY OF RIVER RAFTING WITH POCONO WHITEWATER IN JIM THORPE, PA. ARRIVING EARLY AT 9 AM, WE VISITED A NEARBY BAKERY TO ENJOY A SNACK OF A STICKY BUN, MUFFIN OR JELLY DOUGHNUT.  

 

 

THEN AFTER REGISTERING, SIGNING AWAY OUR LIVES AND OUR FIRSTBORNS, SELECTING A LIFE VEST AND ATTENDING AN ORIENTATION, WE PICKED UP AN OAR AND BOARDED A BUS FOR A 25 MINUTE RIDE TO THE LEHIGH RIVER LAUNCH SITE IN  JIM THORPE, PA. 

 

WE TOOK OUR POSITIONS WITH FRED KEILL IN THE BOW OF THE RAFT; HARRY SHUSTER & DOT ANDERSON ON THE PORT SIDE; DICK REPPERT & CLAUDE DONALDSON ON THE STARBOARD SIDE, WITH CLARENCE GOOD AFT HANDLING THE STEERING OF THE RAFT.

.



 

THE NEXT TWO HOURS WERE SPENT ACCLIMATING OURSELVES TO MANUVERING THE RAFT SUCCESSFULLY DOWN THE RIVER.  THIS WAS NO EASY TASK AS WE LEARNED WHILE GROUNDING ON ROCKS TWO OR THREE TIMES AND GOING AGROUND ON A BRIDGE PILING. WE WERE DEFINITELY THE OLDEST CREW ON THE RIVER THAT DAY. WE WERE CONSTANTLY BEING ASKED IF WE WERE OK. WHEN ONE LITTLE GIRL ASKED WE SAID THAT OLD PEOPLE LOOK THAT WAY ALL THE TIME. I THINK THE GUIDES GAVE US SPECIAL ATTENTION AND WERE ALWAYS THERE TO ASSIST US IN AVOIDING OBSTACLES AND GETTING FREE OF SNAGS. THEY HAVE NAMES FOR MANY OF THE PROMINENT ROCKS AND SNAGS AND WE HELPED THEM FIND QUITE A FEW OTHERS. WE EVEN OFFERED TO HELP THEM MAP THE RIVER.



 

AT ONE POINT DOT DID GO FOR A SWIM BUT HAD TO BE HAULED OUT BY TWO OF OUR GUIDES.

 

AT THE MIDWAY POINT, FOUR (4) MILES DOWN RIVER, WE BEACHED OUR RAFTS AND CLIMBED UP THE BANK TO A NICE PICNIC GROVE FOR A LUNCH OF HOT DOGS, CHIPS, MACARONI SALAD AND A BANANA. 



 

CLAUDE WANTED SOME SPECIAL ATTENTION SO HE TOOK A TUMBLE OFF THE STEPS COMING UP FROM THE RIVER, SCRAPED HIS ARM AND GOT SOME TLC FROM ONE OF OUR SWEET YOUNG GUIDES. 

 

SOON WE REBOARDED OUR RAFTS AND COMPLETED THE LAST FOUR (4) MILES OF OUR RIVER VOYAGE SUCCESSFULLY.  THE TEMPERATURE THROUGHOUT DAY WAS 96 DEGREES, HOWEVER WE NEVER FELT HOT BECAUSE THERE WAS ALWAYS A NICE BREEZE AND WE COULD ALWAYS SLIP INTO THE WATER TO COOL OFF,  IF NECESSARY.

 

ALL OF US ENJOYED THE TRIP AND RAFT FLOAT EXPERIENCE.

 

ps Jim Thorpe, PA is in the Eastern United States; It was a Whitewater Rafting trip; and it was a Challenge to get down the river.
