Are you in Idaho, maybe Lava Hot Springs?

Yes. We've never done the tubing so Andy and I decided to come up and do that. I got stuck at the bottom of some rapids and then got slammed into by a group of about 15 teenagers.

"nearly lost my life" -- same thing happened to me, tubing at lava hot springs, in august.

both me and my sister lost our tubes and went downstream crashing into rocks and gurgling water for several minutes. one of the scariest moments of my life. my mom finally stopped us in a calm area and in the process of snagging us up, she broke two of her toes! when we returned our tubes the tube hut guy saw all of our injuries and said "oh yeah, i forgot to mention the river gets pretty hairy down there". lol.
