16D visits Outdoor Rafting Adventures!

The 16DIGITAL team recently traveled to beautiful Hartford, TN (just about 40 minutes east of Gatlinburg) to visit one of our favorite clients, Outdoor Adventures. Outdoor Adventures conducts 2-hour guided white water rafting tours down the Pigeon River, located on the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

The team was split into two groups: Team Guess (Michael Guess, Ben Raley, George Howington, and Aaron Weber) and Team Andy (Andy Barrow, Shelby George and Maren Kiemen), led by terrific guides Sterling and Kyle. Which team do you think had the better form?

If you’ve never gone white water rafting before, we recommend you check out our friends at Outdoor Adventures. They provide a safe, fun, and memorable experience for your group. 16D Digital Strategist Aaron Weber had this to say about the experience:

Last week, I was kidnapped by my coworkers, tossed in the back of a minivan, and driven 3.5 hours against my will to East TN. I did NOT want to go on this trip. I’ve never enjoyed the outdoors — I just sweat too easily and burn too quickly. There were at least 100 things I’d rather do than go white water rafting.

It didn’t take long for me to come around. The guides’ personalities are infectious. Kyle, Sterling, and the rest of the staff kept us entertained from start to finish, and I’m not ashamed to admit I had a hell of a time.

If you’re on the fence — if you think maybe it’s not worth the drive, not worth the effort, or not worth the price — take it from me. I was a dissenter. A naysayer. A skeptic. But I have been converted. Thank you, Outdoor Adventures, for introducing me to white water rafting. I can’t wait to come back.
