So you may have read a recent post about the French Broad Rafting Expeditions (FBRE) Staff in the off-season… how they get to “play” on the ski slopes when they aren’t “playing” on the water in the summer. Well, it’s not that easy for all of us. Some of us have to get “real” jobs in the winter to make ends meet. Take Jeff for example: Jeff is an experienced trip leader for FBRE and the proud father of a new baby girl. In order to support his family, Jeff started a company called River Right Whitewater Technologies. Since its’ humble beginning a few years ago, River Right has become a prominent guide training school with one of the most thorough Swift Water Rescue courses in the nation.
And then there’s Korey. She is also a veteran trip leader at FBRE. But in order to keep the bills paid in the winter she has to resort to desperate (and childish) measures – like playing in mud. Korey owns Earth Water & Fire Pottery, a small company based in the River Arts District of Asheville. She makes a variety of handmade functional dinnerware and beautiful clay jewelry.
So don’t just assume that “Livin the Dream” is all fun and games. Some of us have to work for a living.
