If you made it this far, the graph above shows the water levels of the Franklin before and during our trip (black underline). We had perfect levels for an easy trip, the weather was fantastic, a great bunch of fella’s that became great mates, with our two guides “Low water” Leon and Johnny Rockhopper”, who instilled confidence from the get-go, cooked up an amazing array of goodness from thin air, A big thank you to Franklin River Rafting for a well organised trip, fantastic gear and not a thing was overlooked. If you get a chance, do it! I’d highly recommend these guys 🙂
Happy Birthday 50th Lucas!! Without you this would not have happened, truly one of the absolute best weeks of my life, thank you. I think the photo of me grinning in front of Rock Island Bend speaks for it’s self – as do they all. Grin my friend, you did it!
