My name is Ryan Hotchkiss. I normally would not reach out to a poster like this, but I really need to ask the right people for advice before we launch our website this spring, Creeklife.com.
It’s been tough to keep most of my family and friend’s interested because only a few of them are boaters. So, I thought maybe the people that took the time to post on this forum may be willing to take the time to help me.
I am originally from Gunnison, CO and now ‘I am a work from home husband having moved to Costa Rica in 2008. In my spare time, I guide rafts and kayak.
You are one the first group of people I am contacting to help… other than my ‘friends’ and I will incorporate your ideas if they fit w/ the site.
I know I can make something in this world better for ourselves, our rivers and future generations.
Please look for me on the site if you can make it over.
Anchorless, I went through the same thing when i was in my mid 20's. I was not willing to give up the comforts of life for a part time or poor paying job. So I work as a firefighter, it is the schedule that most intrigued me. I work a schedule that is 48 hours long on and then 4 days off. Also with vacation i take high water season off. The problem is it is wickedly competitive to get through the hiring process. If you want more info just ask.
