ECHO Guides Celebrate 40 Years!
We celebrated ECHO's 40th anniversary with a great two-day party on the South Fork of the American River last weekend. It was a grand affair. Around 130 people showed up. They ranged in age from six months to seventy years, and came from as far as Australia and Montana. Two of our first three guides were there, and every era was well represented. We have to admit that the younger guides tended to outlast the old timers, but the old timers did themselves proud.
One of the many great pleasures of owning ECHO has been the wonderful people who have worked for us, and the sense of family that they have created. There is definitely an "ECHO type". No one has been able to pinpoint just quite what it is, exactly, but we have a name for it: ECHOTIVITY. It was so very fun to watch the generations come together so well, to sing, play instruments, dance, and tell stories. As several people said, this was like a family reunion, except EVERYONE wanted to be there and there was no cranky old aunt.
