    Ahh this recounting of Matt and Karen Smith's adventure floating down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon makes me want to book a trip The Grand Canyon has always been one of my favorite national parks but I've never been to the bottom I need to fix that someday For now I was happy to go along with this couple and their friends

    Now we're talking I trudged through the last four books in my ueue I picked up Dories Ho on Saturday and finished today I'm not a fast reader But this adventure story of one of my favorite places on earth was an easy and entertaining read The authors detail their river ride with humor and interesting historical facts I could relate to the give and take between husband and wife I felt nervous reading about a dory pushed around in the rapids I cringed at the idea of going to the bathroom in a groover or the possibility of sharing a sleeping bag with stinginghissingbiting critters I marvel at the ease with which 26 friends worked together on the river and hiked rugged trails throughout the Grand CanyonI once attempted to hike into the Canyon with my sisters We didn't get too far but 24 years later I still consider it to one of my greatest achievements Not to mention spending a couple of nights at the magnificent El Tovar There are no words to describe the ever changing beauty of the Canyon or the stars at night The time in my life when I might have taken a river trip like the one so aptly described in Dories Ho is long gone Reading this book from my dry bug free living room is the next best thing I highly recommend Dories Ho as well their first book Dear Bob and Sue I think it would be fun to sit around a campfire drinking beer and listen to them tell stories

    Dories Ho is a story of Matt Karen and their friends that embark on a river trip in the Grand Canyon This is their story and their book is not intended to be a traditional guidebook However if your contemplating a river trip through the Grand Canyon then this book is a benefit and a first hand account of thier trip However I would say if you are contemplating any river trip you would benefit from reading this book Within the story there are great tips ideas and things to consider before embarking on a river trip Matt and Karen's story is inspiring will make you laugh and is an easy to follow enjoyable read Our National Parks hold many great adventures no matter how old you are all it takes is getting out and visiting the parks and exploring

    Thoroughly Enjoyable For anyone who has an interest in reading first hand experiences of outdoor adventures through the experience of a mid life couple this is for you There are plenty of books out there by tge 20 somethings that are inspirational if you have the stamina and life commitments or lack tgere of to maje ut woek at that age Colorado River is a bucket list item for me personally that may not get the check off due to early onset of health problems I laughed at the real life humor included in these adventures as Matt laughed at himself I also enjoyed their previous book Dear Bob and Sue

  7. Kathy Kathy says:

    Matt Smith writes of the experience of rafting down the Colorado with wife Karen and a group of friends Do not read this book unless you enjoy laughing Out loudand often Not only does Matt make the reader feel as if they were in the raft as well but he manages to create sublime descriptions of the beauty of the Grand Canyon as well as inserting tidbits of information that would be useful if you decided to take the ride yourself Highly recommended for armchair adventurers AND honest to goodness adventurers

  8. Stephanie Koke Stephanie Koke says:

    I am a big fan of the authors’ first book Dear Bob and Sue but was somewhat skeptical whether this one would be as enjoyable It did not disappoint In this book Matt and Karen Smith together with 14 friends and a crew of 10 travel in wooden dories through the Grand Canyon The story is informative interesting hysterical and inspirational A float trip through the Grand Canyon is now on my bucket list

  9. Marianne Marianne says:

    I took a Grand Canyon rafting trip last year and I've hiked the canyon and stayed at Phantom Ranch so I was really looking forward to reading this book Unfortunately it disappointed me It simply isn't well written I did enjoy the descriptions of the places I was familiar with but the dialog that was intended to be amusing was painfully boring and tedious I'm sure The Smith's are nice people and I admire their pursuit of adventures I wish I had liked this book

  10. Sara Sara says:

    Another humorous book from Matt and Karen Having gone on the river before I could really imagine where they were and the rapids they discussed The book makes me want to go on the river again If you’ve never been I think if you are the adventurous sort the book will make you want to go Having done the entire river I suggest that instead of only to Phantom Ranch
