To all of our Friends, Family and Guests of America’s Rafting Company,
Parker and I are pleased to announce that we have sold America’s Rafting Company. As many of you know, we’ve always been interested in real estate and construction and have decided to pursue that full time. We came to a crossroads last year and it became apparent that it was time to make a decision in which direction to head. About that time, we met Jarrett and Lauren and knew that they were the right people to carry on what we had started.
We have just gotten word that they have been licensed and approved by all of the various federal land managers and outfitting agencies that it takes to run a whitewater rafting business in Idaho. They have been put to the test (literally) and have what it takes. If you joined us on a rafting trip in the 2016 season, there’s a good chance they were guiding on your trip! Parker and I plan to stay in Idaho, pursuing more real estate and construction ventures and there’s not much that will keep Parker off the river, so there’s a chance you’ll see us out on the water!
We are confident that Jarrett and Lauren will be top notch outfitters and continue to provide the same premium whitewater adventures that you’ve come to know in your time with us. I will turn the keyboard over to Lauren now so that you can get to know her and Jarrett a bit more.
Jarrett and I are thrilled to finally be outfitters and to be able to share our love and passion for the river. We’ve spent the last year working closely with Parker and Becky, learning the insides and outs of this awesome rafting company. We are excited to continue America’s Rafting Company with their style and gusto, and to extend traditions of delicious food and a great time on the river.
Jarrett and I have been whitewater rafting for over 12 years throughout Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Wyoming, Arizona, Maine, and Massachusetts. Jarrett has been a river guide for 6 of those years. The river feels like home to us and we are always so excited to share that experience with others.
We have also previously owned and operated a catering company in Jackson Hole and we are passionate about great food. Jarrett and I look forward to offering incredible river meals, specialty drinks, and a fun and safe time for everyone on the river!
We hope to see you on the river!
Lauren & Jarrett
P.S. We will be launching a new website in a couple weeks. Keep your eyes out!
