Joe Moerschbaecher, owner of Pura Vida Adventures, had the opportunity to meet Bill and Debra Ash this past summer to teach them a rappelling instruction class in Pisgah National Forest. Neither Bill or Debra had ever rappelled before but when booking the trip on the phone Bill was excited about the adventure.
When booking the trip Bill mentioned that a camera crew would be following along on the trip filming a story about his bucket list. The story goes much deeper than that everyone enjoy.
After the rappelling class Bill told Joe that he is ready to try one of Pura Vida Adventures’ waterfall rappelling programs. Bill’s final comments about the rappelling instruction class experience was as followed: “A thrilling adventure that you”ll never forget. A trained professional, Joe Moerschbaecher, takes all of the proper safety precautions with his clients while assuring that it is an enjoyable experience. We will definitely be back for more.”
