First time poster and relatively new rafter. I rafted the New River once a couple years ago and am going with a group at the end of September to do the Gauley Marathon. We booked it through ACE (not sure if that is good or bad, heard mixed reviews). Safe to say I am really excited about this and was wondering what tips or pieces of advice you can give me. There is a group of 6 of us going. 2 have rafting experience, 2 have minor rafting experiece (me included) and 2 have no rafting experience. Thanks guys!
