Ron has been boating longer than some of our employees have been alive. He purchased his first Down River frame during our first year of operation (1985). Ron has floated most of the rivers in the United States and has run several foreign waterways in a raft, canoe or kayak. Along with being a seasoned boater, Ron is an avid hiker and has seen the top of Colorado from every 14er and the bottom from every runnable waterway. Ron is our “go to” expert for trip planning and strategies, and he always has good suggestions for meal planning. Be sure to check out Ron’s River Flow Report when planning your own trip.
