    Yep. And by the time they get there, whatever is going to happen probably has happened already. Please keep us informed!

    Prayers for anyone involved...

    Just talked to Jay, he just got off the river & all is well with his team. The Chopper departed slowly, and the Ambulance departed slowly. Jay is going to call the local Fire Dept./Ambulance and get back to me. The Chopper was here for an hour plus.

    LINK to what happened.

    "An English mountaineer who stood atop Mount McKinley only days ago is dead as the result of an accident during a weekend rafting trip on the Kenai Peninsula's Six Mile Creek."

    (It was a NOVA client)

    SO-SORRY I was praying for a different ending-- Brings back too many memories from years gone by -
    My thoughts to all. Am sure NOVA did every thing they could!! It is the "nature of the beast"
    Tall mountains and hair water-- The EDGE is ever so close. But for some reason so full filling.

    Just some reflections-

    Safe boating,

    Very sad for all involved. NOVA and Chugach Outdoor Center are both top notch companies. From my one trip with NOVA safety from the company, the guides, the safety boat nearby, and set safety on the shore were #1 priorities from what I saw......not just a line in the brochure.

    I guess sometimes the line between the thrill we love and disaster is just a razor thin margin.
