Rafting Trip Lunch With AO In 2020

Posted June 30th, 2020 by Laura Armstrong
 

How does lunch work?

Enjoy your lunch riverside while you dip your toes We are so glad you asked. In the past we have put out our infamous lunch spread where guests come through and create a sandwich; chips, fruit and cookies are also available. 2020 is special—as we all know.

We are individually packing your lunch with lots of love (thanks Food Gals!). When you arrive for your trip your guide will have it packed away in your raft.

A few hours into the adventure you will pull over to the side of the river and tie up the boat. From here your private group can stay by the river with your toes in the water, or find some cool shade under a tree. Bask in the tranquility of the river and the foothills as you eat lunch and enjoy the company of your family and/or friends.

Placing your order

Fresh Handmade Sanwiches with Condiments on the Side A few days before your trip you will fill out a Lunch Order Form with your choice of sandwich / salad, choice of chips, and choice of dessert. You will also get an apple (an apple a day keeps the doctor away). At this point, you will also let us know if you have any food allergies.

Whats in the bag?

Your sandwich choice (unless it is PB&J or veggie wrap) will come with condiments, lettuce, bell peppers, cucumbers, and a pickle. It is a little bit reminiscent of your first day of school at lunchtime but by a beautiful river and no lunch lady. Instead of everyone going through a line, each group will be able to find their own private space and dig into the brown paper bags. If you eat the veggies then you can eat your Otis Spunkmeyer cookie (or dried fruit) : ).  Once we are fueled for afternoon rafting it is time to head back to the rafts and get ready for more excitement and fun downstream. Forward Paddle!
