Why I love being a guide


“Wearing sandals and shorts, we arrive at work in some of the most majestic places in the country.  We experience the thrill and beauty of the great outdoors by maneuvering through it’s current, crawling around on it’s rocks, and basking in the sun. With each new trip, we can provide this once-in-a-lifetime experience to a group of guests.  Anyone with us will be absolutely stoked by their experience, telling friends and family about it for years. Immortalized as an adventure expert…a guide not only gets to do this all the time, we get paid to do it.”

I’ve been a guide for quite a while now, and I’m still in love with the job just as much as I was the first day I found out that this was a “real” job.  Not only do I get to work with some of the most amazing and wide spread group of people, (customers and co-workers) I also get a chance to work outside….the best office anyone could ask for.  (I know some wild mustangs better than most of my neighbors)

Its not about getting rich or for the glamour.  I love being a guide because I want to see people happy (me included)  I love being a guide because…..well, because it’s one of the coolest jobs in the world.
