Later than usual guide school?

I have a place to crash at for cheap (friends grandma has a ranch or something up there and will let me stay if I help out a little bit) in BV, I am looking to move up there and find work on the Ark, but the catch is I have my graduation 5/28 and it looks like most of the outfitters have their guide schools starting before then.

Any ideas? I'm not opposed to finding a regular part time job somewhere, and that's the plan if I cant get on with an outfitter, but it would be pretty rad to work on the river.

thanks!

Some other options for river work you may not have thought of are with RMOC (they guide rafts as well as kayak, bike and climb and need shuttle drivers) and AVDI (they always need summer employees to run memory cards and take photos).

You already have more education than most guides. Drop out of school and follow your dreams.

You can work for me. I'm in charge at "Uncle Grids Old Time Rafting." We use bucket boats.

You don't paddle Grif's rig in his profile picture...just sit back crack a cold one and the boat does all the work.

Just don't swim out of it or you'll 'bout lose your life and Grif won't help. Well, he might throw you a turkey leg, but that'll be it.
