Rolling on the River: A Gluten-Free Whitewater Trip Through Idaho

Gluten-Free Living Magazine May, 2014

"This is the best of two worlds, where a full day of activities ends with an epic dinner prepared by someone else. Kitchen duty? Not here. Breakfasts are as abundant as lunch.

Star Tribune May, 2013

“You don’t have to be an athlete, you don’t have to be in top condition, you don’t have to go jogging three miles a day,” said Peter Grubb, president of Idaho-based ROW Adventures (www.rowadventures.com). “We have, I would say, something to cater to just about any sort of physical activity that people want.”
