Getting Together & Going Paddling New Topic Printer Friendly Version

.....I LIVE here, I'm aware of the fact that the shuttles for multi day trips are difficult for the outfitters. My statement was, "Sounds like a "Shuttle" business might be a good second job for me? Wow, I could shuttle folks a lot cheaper than that!"

I was thinking out loud; my thinking was that I could meet folks from at the takeout and shuttle them upstream for a cheaper price. I was not saying that the outfitters are cheating folks. I know a few of them pretty well. They have to make their money in a short period of time and are at the whim of the weather as much as or worse than farmers. Then add in the exorbitant cost of liability insurance, canoes and gear trashed by renters, etc........ Running a shuttle for someone not renting a canoe from them is a PIA, especially a long shuttle. I understand. I was just thinking out loud that I could help some folks from and make a few bucks at the same time doing a service the outfitters hate to do. A win/win/win situation. Guess I'm better off keeping my thoughts to myself. And, upon further reflection, I think I'll rescind that "Offer."
