Wise River Rafters

Virginia Outdoor Center should be applauded for their patience, common sense and white water safety first attitude. They should be rewarded for their attention to public safety and their willingness to "Just Say No" to those who are hankering to get out on the high water and are no doubt needling them to break their own good sense.

High, cold, flooding rivers are not to be taken lightly. Only the best-equipped professionals or professional paddlers should contemplate heading out in those types of conditions. News reports are coming in from various parts of the country where novice boaters are risking their lives --- and the lives of rescuers --- by venturing out onto swollen rivers that are beyond their capabilities.

VOC's reward should be an even more loyal customer base. http://orionexp.com
