I wanted to take a minute to tell you what a fantastic job your entire staff did for us on our Pack Trip. As you may remember I took our 13-year-old grandson on this trip along with his dad as a special vacation that we take each of our grandkids on when they turn 13. This vacation is the choice of the grandchild to explore their interest, Johnny Jr chose a trip out west want to do some riding and fishing. We had booked a trip with another outfitter months in advance of our August trip only to be told in early July they had sold their ranch and suggested we find a new outfitter that had experience in the area. Your name was mentioned, and you called me within hours of my email informing me you had availability for the dates we needed. We originally booked the trip for South Fork River but found out due to air quality from fires we had to move it to Lake Alice. At first, I was a little disappointed, but turned out to be the perfect trip.
The mule ride in was amazing just enough challenge to make it very exciting and the fishing on Lake Alice was outstanding. I think this camp it perfect and would be great as you spend time there and continue to improve it and build on the old camp that was there originally. I can’t say enough about your staff, Max was so great with my grandson he worked with him on fly fishing, took him out in the Kayak and onshore. Finally hooked up with a trout and was able to land it see pic. My son said the Kayak fishing on the lake was the best, kept saying it was a game changer allow us to fish areas that were hard to get to from shore. I’d say the decision to add Kayaks to the camp was a great option and will pay big dividends for your guest. Within the first hour of arriving to camp we quickly forgot we were on a pack trip, it seemed immediately like we were camping with extended family. Jodie was a great organizer and the best camp chef ever. Jodie made sure it was impossible for us to go hungry, breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks kept us all happy and full. Neely you would have been so proud of her, she worked very hard carrying water, washing dishes, and keeping kitchen area cleaned up. I could tell this was a new experience for her and she did a great job never complaining just kept forging ahead😊 Will was a great wrangler to have along taking great care of the mules, he shared many stories of his experiences with us giving us a glimpse into a cowboy’s life. Can’t forget the camp watch dogs Willey, Nate and Gotcha kept us all entertained and was great companion for JD my grandson. Garrett who helped us unload and load at the trial head like the others was very helpful. We asked about website and Facebook page and Garrett was extremely knowledgeable, might be a good person to put in charge of updating your social media. I will leave you with a couple of thoughts, as a small owner myself, for summer trips build pack trips for 3-5 days to Lake Alice with the focus on families. Ask Jodie about the ongoing discussion during the trip that involved a purple fish on our drive out of the trial head the subject game up about her dog Gotcha’s food dish that was purple and the design on the bottom of the dish😊 Great Trip thank you so much for being part of the memories my grandson will carry with him throughout his life.
