My two twenty-something sons told me that they wanted to come home from Colorado and New York City to celebrate my birthday, so after figuring out a time that would work, I called Northern Outdoors and booked us on a Penobscot River rafting trip and a night at the Penobscot Outdoor Center in a cabin tent.
There were many memorable moments on the trip, but one thing that stands out in my mind is how great all the Northern Outdoors folks were to deal with, from the person who took my reservation over the phone, to the people behind the desk at the Outdoor Center, to our trip leader and his mustache, and especially our raft guide Greg, who was just awesome.
I have gone on trips with Northern Outdoors before and would heartily recommend them to anyone for any kind of outdoors fun. It is a very professional, competent, relaxed and knowledgeable outfit that has just the right attitude about keeping things fun, interesting and safe. The accommodations at the Outdoor Center are well thought out and definitely embrace getting back to nature.
We had a ball, and we'll be back!
