I have had to hike customers out of the room before. You can come back down to the river in a small eddie between Sock and Bowling Alley. Definitely want shoes for the hike though.

It's Last Chance. You can tell by the ledge sloping up on the right. Compare it to 4:38 of this vid:

Good point. Nervous energy maybe? Good run anyway.

Rafters have to do that or they die of boredom.

most of it is line up, sit and look at scenery, punch wave, look at scenery... thats why you go rafting.. if i was with this dude i would stand up and push him off the raft and tell everybody to crack a couple brews open and enjoy the float.
not so much pulling a yeti but just you know pointing out the obvious

If I were captaining a paddle raft through Westwater and my crew quit paddling in the rapids I would not be happy.

I did captain a paddle boat through WW once with bunch of newbs from my work at 15,500 cfs. I don't want to do that again. I'll let the paddle boating to commercials, give me a pair of sticks any day.
