O M G... White water rafting!!!!

I accomplished something from my bucket list!! White water rafting on the Ocoee River in Cherokee National Forest near Chattanooga. I was scared to death the whole trip that I was gonna fall out of the boat... But overall, it was awesome!  I think I might have enjoyed it more if I hadn't known that the class IV rapids were near the end... But then again, I'd always been wondering what was worse to come. 
I did NOT fall out, which was a prayer answered!!! I know I would have drowned. (I hate water in my face...yes, I can swim, and I had on a life jacket,  but I  don't like swimming underwater...but that's another blog post). My boss fell off and went under & had time while she was under to think about what she was doing and how she could get out if it!! So yes, I would have drowned. The kids want to go... But if one of those flipped out, I'd have a heart attack!!!!
So I came thru rapids named Double Trouble, TableSaw, PowerHouse and Hells Hole. So yep, you'd be nervous too with these waiting on you down the river.
