    I am exploring the idea of landing guide work in Chile. Who has done this before? How much experience did you have prior to going? How much work were you able to obtain per year? How were the working conditions different than here in the states? Any companies to apply with or avoid...

    Anyone ever floated the Fu in Chile? If so, were you able to rent rafts or catarafts from anywhere nearby and what's the name? Also, any other tips/advice would be rad. Looking at Nov '17, Thanksgiving time frame. Can't seem to find flow info anywhere either. Thanks!
