Just as life has its ups and downs, rivers have some rough patches, too -- but they're a lot more fun to ride out than a depressed post-breakup phase. Learn to take on tough water with today's deal from Rubicon Whitewater Adventures in Forestville: For $79 (regularly $165), you'll head down the South Fork of the American River on a whitewater rafting day trip led by professional guides; the trip includes a hearty lunch and shuttle transportation. Or, for $375 (regularly $750), you'll build up your skills with a two-day semi-private whitewater rowing clinic. These sessions are held on Thursday and Friday mornings to avoid crowds, and lunch is included. The instructors each have at least 25 years of commercial experience rowing all kinds of rapids, and the clinic will teach you rescue techniques, how to row with pins and clips, how to read water, how to maneuver through currents and eddies, and how to run a Class 3 river throughout 30 miles of intense rafting -- making you invincible to whatever rushes your way.
