Thanks for all the tips! Given that my wife is already not keen on the idea of a rafting trip, I'd hate to blow it by going into this blind and ending up with a bad trip.
The Lacota site makes it look like they have some pretty good food!
Zack, if I go with ART, will you guys feed me better than Lacota?
ART is Arkansas River Tours right?
I take it that all these places start their runs near Buena Vista? If so, is there a particular hotel in the area that is good for under $150? We plan to drive up in one day and arrive at night, do a 2 day river ride, and then meander back towards California at a leisurely pace stopping at a few places along the way.
My wife thinks the ART river and rail one day thing is plenty of rafting. The boys and I think the 2 day trip is what we want to do. As of now seems like Lakota or ART 2 day run is what we need to decide between. LPR seems about the same too???
