Everything about this excursion was amazing. The boat, the river, the weather. But then there's Scott. Who I'm convinced is just one of best examples of being Human that we have down here on earth. My wife and I and our two dogs were in from a year of living in a very tortured Downtown Portland, our nerves extremely frazzled. Our oldest dog, a Cattle dog Shepard mix, immediately ran right up to him to get pets and give kisses. Our Cattle dog doesn't like men, and she especially doesn't like tall men. But she ran right up to Scott like they were long lost friends. That was my first clue.
Scott's KICK A$$ boat, extensive knowledge of the river, and incredible hosting skills (somehow he knew exactly when to engage us, and when to just let us sit quietly and enjoy the river) was the highlight of our week long trip. The snacks provided were just right and I can not say enough about our host.
The entire 4 hour experience was intensely relaxing, a little fun and exciting (that boat can GO) and just what two anxious nervous systems needed. Thank you so much for your hospitality Scott. And Yacht Rock on. :)
