Damp Ed Oravec Family, those who took the raft together, had a great
time recently in Gatlinburg, TN. In front, Dave Oravec actually
does have an oar-- he's just balancing it on his knee! After this
trip, Ginny and Dave took the "upper river" trip, faced some serious
rapids, and loved it.
Brian Oravec in a "Thrill Cat"
kayak before he took a dip in the river while learning to
surf the rapids. He gave us all a scare (and swallowed a lot of
river water) before he was able to climb back into the raft.
Oravec and Dave Wheeler in their "Thrill Cat" kayaks. Madison was
the youngest (and some say the most graceful) Thrill Cat rider in
the group. Her dad could have taken lessons from her! Dave Wheeler
set out on the river trip just minutes after completing a 5-hour car
trip from Cincinnati to meet us on the river.
