Some video I edited/uploaded of my son's first rafting trip. Just watch - it's short - I think you'll smile!

Nice man, taking kids on a river is an awesome ordeal! I think you have a little addict on your hands now. Dump the commercials and go private!

Little man sounds like he loved it, great video and memories. Kids thrive on the river and outdoors.

I only own a 1 man 11' Cat right now (plans to buy a 2-3 man cat next year hopefully) - but the trip I was on was a father-son boys trip with 7 adults and 8 kids so even if I owned my own raft I wouldn't have been able to accommodate it so going commercial for this trip made sense lol.

My dad started taking me at that age and I just started my 4 year old daughter with a trip down the N. Platte and Radium-State Bridge a couple weeks ago. Absolutely memories that last a life time!

"Daddy! Do it again!"

I started taking my girls down the river as soon as they where out of diapers. My oldest is in her second year guiding in Utah, an my other daughter when she graduates is sure to follow. They both love the river.

I have actually just purchased a raft for that reason. My kids love water and instead of buying a new kayak I figured its time to get them into it. Although, 15 years ago I never would have thought I would be buying a big boat just to haul my family around.

This is the old guy thread!

Had my daughter on the river and on skis when she was two.
She was rowing the MFS & GC as a teenager.
She quit college to be a river guide and ski instructor.
Saved me a fortune in college tuition.
Now I'm about to become a Grandfather!
Going to need a bigger boat!

That was great! We took our niece at nine months to blackrocks and at the age of 10 on a 21 day Grand Canyon trip with a couple Lodores in-between. Now she wants to do the Grand again and were aiming for the Salmon next summer when she's 12. Kids love the outdoors when you get'em out there!

My daughters first trip.

I finally talked her into going this year. BTW there is a big rock in the wave train of Joe Hutch that will sneak up on you at this level. She just about went out and I thought we were going to have a yard sale. We had a great Aug trip.
