THE FORKS/GREENVILLE – For some people, what I’m going to write here isn’t going to be a revelation. Some wise folks will just slap their foreheads and say, “Well, duh. We already knew all this.” But I know I’m not the only one who’s never ventured on a snowmobile before. This was an issue my friends up at The Inn by The River decided to rectify recently.
Blue Skies and Whitewater – @Jump and Raft
When the Carroll sisters travel together something exciting is bound to happen. Our most recent adventure brought us north to Millinocket, Maine and Three Rivers Whitewater. Partnering this with Skydive New England, you get “Jump and Raft”. Three Rivers calls itself “The Home of Serious Fun” and when Tony Rinaldi, one of the owners, greeted us with an enthusiastic “Welcome Home” we knew it was time to party.

1) JUMP AND RAFT
Experience two insane, adrenaline-fueled adventures in a single day. Jump ’n Raft Maine combines the high-altitude thrill of skydiving with the rush of whitewater rafting down Class 5 rapids. First, you jump from 11,000 feet, free-falling over the scenic northern New England landscape. Then you hit the water for 13 miles of paddling along the Penobscot River, home to some of the East Coast’s best rapids. Tour operators will provide you with all the gear and instruction you need. Just show up and sack up. Afterward, kick back and enjoy the party with a full-service restaurant, live music, a hot tub, and a huge, nightly bonfire.
