Extreme River Tubing
During the first annual Rambo Rally we take a break from riding the adventure motorcycles and instead ride some inner tubes down a freezing river in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Subscribe to my channel to see the other videos of this series.

Ocoee River Whitewater Rafting 16 Hiawassee Shoals
The Toccoa River and Ocoee River are actually a single 93-mile-long (150 km) river that flows northwestward through the southern Appalachian Mountains of the southeastern United States. It is called the Toccoa for its 56 miles (90 km) through Georgia, until it reaches the twin cities of McCaysville, Georgia and Copperhill, Tennessee, at the truss bridge which connects Georgia 5 (Blue Ridge Street) with Tennessee 68 and Georgia 60 (Ocoee Street and Toccoa Street). The remainder is called the Ocoee through Tennessee, known for its whitewater rafting, and host to whitewater slalom events during the Centennial 1996 Summer Olympics held primarily in Atlanta, about 100 miles (160 km) to the south. The Ocoee River is a tributary of the Hiwassee River, which it joins in Polk County, Tennessee, near the town of Benton. It was an important river for both the Cherokee and Creek tribes.
The Ocoee's flow is controlled by the Tennessee Valley Authority via three dams. Most often the riverbed is nearly dry in the ten-mile (16 km) stretch used for sporting, the water being diverted through flumes along the side of the mountains. Ocoee #2 dam diverted water, from the middle section of the river, through the flume, until a 2010 rock slide washed out part of the flume, which is currently under repair. The dam was originally built in 1913 by the East Tennessee Power Company to provide hydroelectric power to the new Alcoa company, which was starting aluminum production operations in Blount County, Tennessee, south of Knoxville.
The three Ocoee dams are numbered sequentially, with #1 being the farthest downstream and #3 being the farthest upstream. TVA acquired the two original dams (Ocoee #1 and Ocoee #2) in 1939 and started building Ocoee #3 dam in 1940. These dams generate an average of 67,000 kilowatts of electricity in total. The Middle Section contains some 20 named rapids and provides recreational opportunities throughout its eight-month season. One of the largest rapids on the Middle Ocoee, Hell's Hole, runs right beneath the bridge leading to the power station, with Powerhouse, a significant ledge with a strong hydraulic, right after it. Upstream (to the southeast), TVA also operates Blue Ridge Dam, which creates Lake Blue Ridge (called Blue Ridge Reservoir by TVA).
The whitewater slalom events during the 1996 Summer Olympics were conducted on a one-mile Olympic whitewater course that is fed by releases of water from Ocoee #3. The Ocoee Whitewater Center was built by the U.S. Forest Service for this purpose, including a large building along U.S. 64, whose westbound lanes were originally built as the parking and staging area, allowing it to later become a divided highway in the immediate area to handle summertime traffic. A 4.5-mile whitewater rafting area farther downstream is fed by water released from Ocoee Dam #2. The Olympic section was not open to the public until after the Olympics, while the middle section has been open to the public since the 1970s, mainly for daytime releases of water on weekends and holidays. After the Olympics, rafting tours (including bus transportation) are provided by several different companies located in both directions on U.S. 64, which runs next to the river for a few miles (several kilometers).

Day 2 of our trip to Ellijay,Ga about 1 hour away. Site of the 1996 Olympics and the best whitewater trip we have ever been on. Totally dam controlled, 7PM at night the river is bone dry! This is a 1.5 hour raft trip edited to 27 minutes and in the order we went down the river. The GoPro 7 battery died 2/3 of the way down and the rest is with the GoPro 5. Just turn up the volume because the GoPro 5 is in a water proof case.

Poudre River Swim - In A Colorado Minute (Week 225)
The Cache la Poudre River is a refreshing oasis that snakes its way through Fort Collins, Colorado. It's just a short bike ride from our house, and it's been our quick go-to refreshment spot during these very busy and sweltering weeks.
If you live in Fort Collins, it's blazing hot and you don't have time to drive up into the mountains, I highly recommend a Poudre River swim or tubing down the river!
Many times we meet up at the river with one of our oldest and dearest friends, GJ, and of course our dog Whiskey always comes along and is the first one in the cool, rushing water. The day I shot this video, she actually learned how to swim against a strong current - or maybe it was just the day she proved to us she could do it all along.
A special thank you to GJ for letting me use his underwater camera and for being such an awesome friend and all the fun times together. I think this video could also have been called Buddies Go Swimming since it features Scott, GJ and Whiskey, who are clearly all best buddies. Can't wait for our next outing together.

If you have another minute, I'd like to recommend the video of a different adventure we've had in and along the Poudre River: (Flooded) Poudre Trail – In A Colorado Minute (Week 214):
