Ahh, the weekend approaches.
Okay so it’s only Wednesday, but that means that tomorrow is Thursday and on Friday I’m heading to Oregon! (After work that is). For the past 2 months my weekends have been filled with SCUBA diving and well… more SCUBA diving! But this weekend will be a little different. In talking with a prospective business partner and friend, I was invited to his family’s house in Medford, Oregon to visit and I accepted since I’ve never been. He also mentioned he and his father were going White Water Rafting, something I’ve been wanting to do for a few months now. This just seems like an excellent opportunity to see Oregon, have some fun and work on a new business project – searchNrecovery.com.
I don’t want to delve too deep into the business project, so let’s just say it’s a SCUBA related venture. Since both Ryan (my friend) and I are now MSDs (Master Scuba Divers) and we are close to becoming DMs (Dive Masters) it might just turn into a niche little business.
Without digressing too much, from what I understand we are rafting / kayaking down the Rouge River, a Class II rapid. Unfortunately being that it’s only a Class II, it probably won’t have many obsticles or dangers, meaning a little less excitment. In the past, whenever I’ve looked into rafting, it’s been down the Kern river, a Class IV. Class IV have erratic waves and holes, large obstructions, waterfalls, ledges, etc. I’ll let you know how it goes when I get back – hopefully I will have some pictures!
