Whitewater Rafting in Maine

2 weekends ago my husband Donald and I took 2 of our Grandkids North to Jackman ME for the first time.


We had always talked about "someday" going Whitewater Rafting .

Well someday finally happened :>)

We drove 6.5 hrs. to get there, but it was well worth it

Jackman is a VERY small town about 1 hr.North of Skowhegan  It`s filled with small country stores and surrounded by Mountains and LOTS of small town hospitality

We had made reservations at the Mountain View Resort which is a BEAUTIFUL Lodge http://www.innseason.com/isr/RD_R_Mountainview.aspx part of the inn season resort properties

We had a Gorgeous View of the mountains just behind the lodge and inside the Lodge was just as pretty

After a Peaceful nights sleep, bright and early Sunday morning we met up with the Bus from the Windfall Rafting Company http://windfallrafting.com/ which took us to the Kennebec River Dam where our rafting trip started.

After a smooth raft ride down the river for a bit, we started hitting the rapids !  Class 2 , 3, and then the mighty 4 http://windfallrafting.com/

Grandpa and I had as much fun and excitement as the Grandkids did !  We definitely wished we had done this sooner but very glad we got to share this with the kids.

LAST CALL! Ebay on Location in Philly

Are you an eBay seller? Are you local to Philadelphia? (local meaning can you drive here in 6-9 hrs???)

Are you registered for eBay on Location in Philadelphia next week?

You can't be part of the fun if you're closed out and the slots are filling up.

Hurry up 'cause,  Sept 5th is the Opening Ceremony and Sept 6th is when all the "games"  happen, aka seminars, training, sprinting from one room to the next, the handshaking marathon and the "cramming stuff is overtaxed brains" test.  

No Gold medals for you if you stay home.  

Now seriously, I went to Orlando last year, I went to Chicago in 2008 and to New Orleans in 2004 (thank God they didn't pick New Orleans or the South for this year's event..and prayers for those of you swimming around in waterwings this week... )   and I can honestly say:


I can't always tell what it is but in 2004 I learned to re-write my return policy and to make other policies more "buyer friendly" in 2008 I Learned about Item specifics. I'm still processing 2011 but I did learn a bunch of "push you up higher in search ideas".

So, will I see you there?? I'll be the short round person with white hair... this year I'm not limping as I've gone All Bionic All the time...next year's replacement parts are on order now but this  year I'm entered in the sprinting from class to class event. (my sprint is your slow mosey).  If you see me, introduce yourself!! (and hand me a business card, that's a whole OTHER event.)
