I don't think many people tip, so anything is a bonus. We used to leave a couple cold beers in the cooler for our Smith river shuttles, but as the companies have changed we stopped that. I left them $20 on a $120 dollar shuttle this year and my rig was spotless when I picked it up. I don't think they really expect it, so a little goes along ways. I sure hope I don't have to start tipping 20% on shuttles, that might be a little high on most trips.
That's the first cash tip I've ever left... I doubt I'll do it on day trips, but long trips and nasty roads - it might just get folks to treat your shit with respect vs rallying over wash boards with the trailer whipping around in the back.
