x2 on WV if you're trying to stay anywhere close to Cinci. I doubt there's any commercial rafting in Ohio that'd be as much fun...
If you're trying to come out West, especially in Colorado, most any company does a rookie training program every year.
Do you have any prior guiding experience?? Do you know roughly which river you want to work??
If you narrow it down to a specific river, especially in Colorado, there's gonna be tons of buzzards that can point you towards good companies to look at.
Probably more opinions than assholes
JofusDE, Desta looks pretty cool, I've never heard of it before, but I'll spread the word.
Good on ya man!
