Que Tal? I hope the rest of your season went well. I’m sure after you finish reading this letter you will be able to tell what an incredible time I had. After the trip was over I was wishing I could go back to the beginning and start all over again.
Okay, now for the reason I’m writing: Your extra effort on this trip meant a lot to me - it showed how much you wanted everyone to have an enjoyable and safe trip. It takes a special person to do the extra things like your refusal to give up on my lost airline luggage and it was appreciated by everyone.
For me one of the best parts of the trip was learning about Chile from you and the other Chilean guides. Thank you for sharing this - it is something that will stay with me for a long time.
I spoke to Eric when I got back and complimented him on how the trip was run and on the incredible camps. The emphasis the guides placed on safety was very comforting. At no time in the trip did I feel that we were in an unsafe situation especially having the safety catarafts down below just in case. The emphasis on safety makes a trip like this so much more enjoyable and allows one to “relax” in the big rapids.
The camps were such an incredible part of this trip. It was so nice to have a warm, comfortable place to end up at each evening. When I saw the Mapu Leufu Camp, it was just amazing to walk around taking in the views in every direction. I didn’t think it was possible to find a more comfortable, beautiful place. That was until we got to the Cave Camp! I couldn’t believe the things you and Eric have done there, with the tower climb, rappel, stone hot tub, tyrolean traverse, zip line; all things I had never had a chance to do before. Someone asked me which activity I liked the best. I enjoyed the tyrolean and zip line but climbing the tower and seeing the panoramic view from on top was the highlight. It was great to be able to do as much or as little as I wanted there.
I’m sorry if this got a little long but this letter wouldn’t be complete without mentioning your incredible guides. I think you and Eric have hired some of the best in the business. They were all friendly and easy to talk and yet when things got serious in the bigger rapids or on the climb they were very professional and let us know what they wanted us to do. I really can’t say enough about any of them, they were a joy to be around both on the river and after we arrived in camp.
Robert, this was definitely the best vacation I have ever taken and again, I can’t thank you for all the little and big things you did to make it so memorable.
