Sounds like the guides had to offer up formal letters of apology to the SAR team, sheriff, judge, and on scene firefighters. Kind of non-sense if you ask me, but it sure beats paying a fine and not dealing with the courts for the next 6 months.

Considering that there was plenty of douchery on their side... that seems a pretty damn reasonable solution to the issue. I'm glad the charges were dropped, but it really surprises me that they dropped them for guy #2.

Next time... don't lose a customer & this whole thing doesn't need to happen!!

Are you a guide or have you ever been a guide?

I work on Gore, but no, I'm not a guide.
Have you ever been a sheriff's deputy?

Glad we talked about what I do for a living... that was an enlightening conversation.


If you go to the other thread, this whole thing has been beaten to death. My only reason for saying what I did was that if we don't lose customers, then there is no reason for conflict as to who gets to rescue them.

What's with the sarcasm? You seem a little angry... forget to take your Prozac?

If you had been a guide you would understand that people falling out of boats can be out of your control. People don't always do what they're told in a raft. If you had the experience of dealing with these people in whitewater, I don't think you would have suggested something as ridiculous as "Next time... don't lose a customer".

What are you, a railroad man?

You think they should have to apologize to the public servants that arrested them for doing their own job better? I think you should have to apologize to us for this retarded notion.

What would really be nice is if the deputy sheriff wouldn't allow any thieves, enraged motorists, crack heads, murderers, pedophiles, Etc. to continue to do their dirty work. Only seems fair if we're to not allow custy's out of the boat!

Figure that one out Deputy and then maybe, just maybe you'll have gotten it.

Just sayin'...
