Frank and Fletcher have been running raft trips for their friends for years. It started way back in the mid 80s when a Friend of Fletcherís (Bob Elwell) found out about rafting and invited Fletcher. Somewhere around 87 or so, Fletcher started guiding along with Bob. Eventually, Bob bought a raft and was fondly known by a number of the rafting companies as the River Pirate. This was due to his frequent raft trips, abundant supplies of ice cold beer (not allowed on commercial ventures) on his raft, and very jovial attitude. Unfortunately, Bob passed away in 2000. For more history on Bob, check out his memorial website
Frank was invited by Fletcher to join up with the mad cap crew in the mid-90s. Having been on the 1980 Olympic polo team, he was very comfortable around water and quickly learned to guide as well.
Fletcher and Frank decided to keep the rafting trips alive and have done so to this day.
