I-81 Visitor's Center
We had a beautiful day full of sunshine so there were numerous travelers visiting the I-81 South Visitor Center. Many folks were headed to the Shenandoah Valley to visit the caverns and Skyline Drive but I made sure they knew all about River Riders and what we had to offer.
Several people had our raft trips confused with those in southern WV, they said they heard the waters in WV were very dangerous and were definitely out of their comfort zone. I reassured them that our trips were on the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers with Class I to III rapids...great for playful family "daycations".
There were several tweens that were excited about our camp adventures and eagerly took the brochures and ran them to their parents. I was greeted with open arms by Wanda and Canza, the guest services specialists at the center. They were very friendly and willing to help promote the fact that I was there to all their guests.
Overall, I had a great day and was grateful to have met many different personalities traveling through our great state of WV. ~ Sarah L. Knott
