I had been to the Grand Canyon 30 years ago, up at the rim looking down. Now that I’ve had this experience, it’s like a lot of people go to a baseball game and experience it from the stands, and have a good time, you know, and say, “Okay I’ve been to a Major League baseball game.” But this is like going to fantasy camp. This is participating in the game. This is getting on the playing field. This is mixing with the players. This is the Grand Canyon fantasy camp.
I brought my best friend here, so I don’t have a whole lot to say. I think I have a lot of pictures to show. I think it’s an opportunity that most people can handle. A lot of people will definitely be out of their comfort zone, but it’s not totally physically demanding. You can participate in any level you feel comfortable at.
I felt very peaceful, and at ease. Even the rapids, I mean they were fun, but you’re very at ease through the entire trip. It’s a very relaxing trip. You can be anywhere on the raft, you can be on the safe side of the raft, you can be up front getting drenched, you can be relaxed sitting in the back almost falling asleep. And no matter where your eyes go, you’re going to see something very unique.
We had a fantastic group of people here. We didn’t know each other. I think you come as strangers and you leave as friends. If this is something that you aren’t interested in, you ought to become interested in it, because this is something very unique. You’ll never get a chance to do something like this.
