WHO YOU GONNA CALL? (Salt Shuttle)

Just wondering if anyone knows if there is someone that will run shuttle for a pre permit season Salt River trip. Will probably end up with 2 trucks and trailers that will need to be shuttled to the take out. Thanks buzzards.

Its honestly not bad to do it yourself. A little over an hour each way on asphalt

Usually there are raft companies all set up at the put in that will do it too. If they aren't there, they'd probably come down and do it. Pre-Season is getting more popular every year it flows...so you'd think someone would capitalize on it.

The transition is supposed to be seamless, but Wilderness Aware just sold their entire operation about 3 weeks ago to someone who was not in any way associated with WA before. I hope there aren't any issues, but I would simply suggest following up on your reservation with them to ensure that everything will still be operating the same as in the past. Particularly in regards to their Salt River season.

He actually worked for WA as a guide, and if memory serves he then became a floating state ranger.

So he does have ties to WA and the boating world.

He just left for a bit and is now back.

Your right. I just read an article in our local paper about the transaction and it sounds like he used to be their head boatman and the manager of their Salt River operations.... so there shouldn't be anything to worry about.

At it's sale, Wilderness Aware's tale is a telling of history as a mountain river town | Free Content | chaffeecountytimes.com

By the way, it's an interesting article. Covering the history of WA as well as the history of commercial rafting on the Arkansas.
