I just went rafting yesterday on the ocoee. This was my second time ever. I am about 115 pounds and decided to sit in the front of the raft. Little did i know there was these "olympic rapids" coming up. My guide informed us about them but i guess i never pieced it together that this was going to be a big rapid. Our boat consisted of 5 people the heaviest about 140 lbs. We were backsurfed on godzilla and then the right side of the raft flipped right as we hit humongous. I was thrown out immediately and was caught in the hydraulics. I used the method my guide taught me to get out and it worked. Afterwords, i was floating downstream bumping into rocks and swallowing a good amount of water. Guides threw me rope to hold onto from the shore and the first attempt failed. I was getting scared at that point. Finally i was saved by the second rope which seemed to take an eternity. I have a rooe burn and many bruises but i am just grateful to be alive right now. I had a lot of fun afterwords though.
