  • "“As someone who has rafted on commercial trips all over the western U.S. for over 15 years now, I can say without hesitation that your company is the FINEST outfit I have rafted with. The Cal Salmon trip was probably the best trip I have ever been on.” "
  • "What a premier company you have got going! I have been rafting with groups for over 20 years and you guys are DELUXE! The little things go along way in demonstrating the class act you provide."
  • "I am just writing to let you know that we had such a mind-boggling time on the Upper Klamath! Everyone was consistently talking about how great of trip it was, and how the FOOD WAS AMAZING! Moreover and most important the staff (Anthony, Glenn, Adam, Julie and Derrick) who were just unbelievably super! I believe our group bonded with them and we all just had such a rockin time ( Glenn: Rock on!..inside joke:)) Your staff just left us with such a vast impression we all decided that your number one in our trips to come( By the way we are already planning it!) Cal Salmon here we come!!! Lol! Please thank the crew for us again and I can’t thank you enough for running such an organized and welcoming company! You know what they say, “Big things, come in small packages” Once again, Thank you and you will definitely be hearing from us again! Sincerely, Veronica and the troop "
  • "I know it's rare, but Momentum is a company that delivers everything they promise. Great guides, great food, great gear, great times. Support this company! "
  • "Thank you so very much for one of the best water experiences I have ever had. As an avid open ocean sailor, I get adrenaline rushes very often while on the water. However, this ranks up there with the best of all of the sailing I have done. Beyond your expertise and concise instruction, your overall customer interaction and service was something I have never experienced before in any environment. This, along with the gourmet culinary skills, has me already considering my next trip with your company. "
  • "Just returned from my trip on the Cal-Salmon/Scott Rivers. I live in Cincinnati and this is my second year with Momentum in Oregon/California. Need I say more? Momentum delivers everything it promises - awesome, safe rafting; excellent guides; excellent food; and incredibly friendly people. Thanks especially to our guide, Anthony. You were awesome. "
  • "First time river rafting at age 58 and we did class 4 rapids. We had early teen kids up to age 65 on our trip. With Eric's professionalism and experience and commands regularly blasting in my ear, we did great and I had an absolute blast. Would recommend this guide, company and trip without qualification to anyone."
  • "It was certianly a great time on the river! I thank you for making it all so good, especially for my family. You are all so much fun to be around. I was amazed by the set-up you all provided. A special thanks to Pete for running such a great company, hiring great people and maintaining a laid back attitude. Kudos. Also thank you for being such a competent guide, keeping us afloat isn't easy in all situations, but you did it. The area was full of wild beauty and you knew so many answers to my questions. I definitley respect the knowledge people gain about their area. The trip was the best graduation gift I could ever get. You guys rock! Have a sweet summer. "
  • "Pete, what a great trip, you are a class act, the wine and cheese was fabulous and the food has been the best I've ever experienced on a river trip. The Salmon River was the second most beautiful river I've rafted, next to the Grand Canyon. Also it was very challenging. Will be pretty disappointing to go down the Kern after this trip. Will have to do the Scott next time we are up there. Many thanks again, cannot wait to go up there again! Cheers, Lynne "
  • "Erik- Thank you for such a great time. We really enjoyed our time with your crew on and off the river. What a great experience, I will definitely be recommending this company to anyone who is interested in this sort of adventure. I would have loved to do Last Chance and Freight Train over and over again, those were the best! Thanks again! Take care. Whitney Turner "
  • "It was a great trip. Haley said it was one of her favorite vacation trips ever. We'll definitely do another trip in the future. Your whole staff and crew was great, it made the trip that much better. "
  • "Hi Pete, I just wanted to touch bases with you and thank you for the incredible Cal Salmon/Scott trip this last weekend. The Salmon at 3000 cfs was a very different river from 3 years ago at a much lower flow, and the Scott at 1000 cfs was very technical and fun as hell! Erik did a great job on the oars as always, and Schuler rapid in particular was long, complex, and very challenging. The food was extraordinary, the camping deluxe, and all the other guests fun to be with. And I even got all my final exams all graded (I finished this at the Weed Motel 6 Monday evening)!! Next up for me is Moss Canyon/Rossasco Ravine on the north Yuba in 2 weeks, then a bunch of stuff in Colorado culminating with Gore Canyon (with AVA) in early August. With regard to the Middle Owyhee next year: Easter in 2011 is April 24, so I will have April 16 (Sa) - April 24 (Su) as my spring break. So hopefully you will run a trip on the MO during that time. If you do, I can guarantee you I will go on it barring unforseen circumstances (it would be best if it would not start right ON the 16th or end right ON the 24th, so I could have at least a day to travel each way). Also, I would like to go on the Chilko-Chilcotin-Fraser trip sometime in the future if you could schedule it to end prior to Aug. 12, but that trip is probably more likely to work for me 2 years from now rather than next year. Thanks again, and I hope for your continued success, and success with all of your future plans for Momentum. I think that it is terriffic that you are always pushing the envelope, trying new things. I hope you don't work too hard though. Take care, Paul Kryder "
  • "Pete- Thanks for yet another great week of rafting! I'm always impressed with your business and how hard you work to learn and grow and make it better--congratulations! You have put together a special group of people and create some wonderful experiences for the rest of us--thank you. "
  • "Thank you so very much for one of the best water experiences I have ever had. As an avid open ocean sailor, I get adrenaline rushes very often while on the water.

Beyond your expertise and concise instruction, your overall customer interaction and service was something I have never experienced before in any environment. This, along with the gourmet culinary skills, has me already considering my next trip with your company. I am even considering guide school after law school, so long as Pete isn't sitting there on the shore (as he likes to do) laughing. Once again, thank you! "
  • "Hello lovely people! Jack and I loved our adventure and have already told folks your trips are a must, esp living in Ashland. I made the mistake of looking on Youtube at what can go wrong in Class V rapids, and was quite scared on the drive down, but not once - not even one time did I feel scared in the water. We were having so much fun that I couldn't stop laughing out loud every time we went through a rapid... all thanks to your guides' emphasis on safety, their skill set and knowledge base. I have a tremendous amount of respect for all of you and your experience reading the water. Also, the food was dreamy; healthy, organic energy food made us all happy :) Thank you so much - we will be back! "
  • "We had an amazing time as well! We may be back next year for my bachelor party, I got engaged the day we got back from the trip. - Thank you, Phillip Leonard "
  • "I had an amazing three days on the Cal Salmon and Scott. The service, the food, and the friendships were all wonderful. And the rivers, the rivers were spectacular! I especially loved "airplane" rapid on the Salmon. Thank you so much. "
  • "Pete, I speak for all of us. We had a wonderful trip. We are going to Raft the Kern next month,( a little less of a drive)! Do you have the video of our trip? We are anxious to check it out. You guys did an awesome job and we'd love to raft with you again sometime soon! Let me know about the video or pix?! Thanks Again for making our trip so special. Sue Dell "
