A screen shot of the original TV 21 studio backdrop for "Outdoors".
Welcome to our new blog. We've decided to get back to our roots, honoring the man where it all started.  When Terry Shearn first came up with the idea to become a professional rafting outfitter he also was the host of "Outdoors" on WXXI TV in Rochester, NY. It was a novel concept at the time, exploring all the fun activities found in the Great Outdoors around Western and Central NY, and the show quickly became a favorite with the viewers.

Two of our very own ACO Guides, Mike Radomski and Tim Reed have graciously agreed to take up the mantle and share with you their thoughts on being outdoors around the region.  In future posts and videos they will explore parts of Western and Central NY that perhaps you didn't know about or haven't been to in a while as well as bring you along on various fun seasonal activities. They'll give you some tips on how to best prepare for an outing or how to be ready for a "what if" scenario too.

We also hope to share stories from other members of our staff along the way and maybe even from some of our outfitting friends scattered across the area.  Let's go on some adventures "Outdoors", shall we?
