  • Desert Mountain Paddlers

     This is a GREAT group of people. Everyone is very friendly, and patient (they had to wait for me twice). THINGS I LEARNED TODAY: 1. My old kayak doesn't like to be sideways in rapids. Now I just wonder how my other kayak would do in the river? 2. No matter how cold the water is, you don't even notice it when you tip over :) 3. My 22 years of SCUBA and 35 years of swimming training came in handy today :) Thanks all of you for a great adventure today. I can't wait to do some more stuff with all of you.

     Fun group of people to spend a day on the river with. I appreciate the attention to safety and talks to the group before starting down the river.

     Great activity with great people. I always feel as though people are ensuring we are SAFE and looking out for each other in that aspect. It's great to be with Ron's meetups. He's willing to share and make sure we're all safe while having fun.

     First impressions- great mix of people. Would find it hard to believe that anyone would't enjoy the group and float.

     As someone who has received a lot of formal training, I was pleasantly surprised by Ron's professionalism and appreciation for safety precautions (ACA).
