Dear Marti, Jonathon, Lonnie, McKinley, Even, Ben and others at Sierra South,
 
It has been 2 full weeks since our family raft trip with Sierra South and I waited to send this thank you, to see if any of the enthusiasm has worn off our 21 person group, and it has not.  I still hear comments like:

‘I wish we were all doing it again tomorrow’

‘That was the most fun I have ever had in my life and I’m 35’

‘The only thing I wished was the day to be longer.  7 hours wasn’t long enough’

‘That was the best day of my life’

‘I thought I would be afraid to do class 3 and 4 and now I want to go higher’

‘That was the most fun our family has ever had together’

‘I can’t wait to do it again’

‘I hope I can get our office staff to do this, they will love it’

And the list goes on and on.  What a fun day!  What an exciting adventure!

I have personally done 5 different class 3-4-5 raft trips on the Kern, and was very impressed how thorough and efficient Sierra South has become.  You have always been a safe and professional company to go with, but it seems like you keep getting better and better.  Your initial safety instructions given to us by our guides was well done and easy to understand.  The water safety exercises in the boats and in the water kept everyone feeling safe, calm and prepared for a fun day.  Your guides could not have done a better job.  I hear done of them comment that he would never have come back for another year of guiding if he wasn’t able to work with Sierra South.  That was nice to hear.

As you know, we made our initial rafting reservations in Feb so we could set up a 50th Birthday Celebration for our son in June.  As the June 4 rafting date approached we felt the skill level of many of our first time rafters was not suited for the heavy water flow and we appreciate how easy it was for us to move the date back to July.  We also liked the way we could do all of our registrations on line and how well you helped us organize this event and follow who had signed up, by going on line.

I cannot think of a better way for a group to bond together and have the fun we had, than the rafting we did with Sierra South.  Thank you for a special day and we all look forward to Rafting the Kern with your company in the future.

Regards,

C. G., family and friends

Guide Service: Excellent. Davey PP was a great guide. Very knowledgeable of the river, rapids, and lines. He took the time to explain all the basic boating safety items to everyone, regardless of prior experience.

Trip Experience: Excellent. I have been down the upper Kern several times, both as an oarsman on my own boat and running private paddle rafts. I had never really considered a private rafting trip, but we had an issue with people backing out of the trip and boats this year. With the high water and recent issues on the river, i was honestly concerned about even running the river. The professional staff and the experienced guides really made this a fun trip. I will definitely consider this again, especially when people bail on us again.

Pre-Trip Materials: Excellent. If I had questions on the flow of the river, they had the answers. Went with my 12 year old so was a little concerned with the river flowing so full.

Guide Service: Excellent. Our guide, believe Leone (not sure on spelling), was fantastic. Great guy, really engaged my boys and even encouraged them to guide during summers in college.
