AO Staff recently used the Cesar Chavez holiday to extend the weekend for a staff training on the Rogue River in Oregon. The focus of the training was expedition rafting: loading all of our gear for three nights onto our four rafts and rowing, as opposed to paddling. This style of rafting will allow us to run longer rafting trips on more remote rivers in the future. Enjoy the photos, and if you want to see more of them be sure to visit our Facebook page.
