"Thanks you so much for another great experience kayaking! Everyone was awesome, Donnie got the paper work done, Paul found the missing part to my boat, and Judy is the prettiest shuttle driver I have ever seen. And then there is Shannon. Boy do you have a Jewel there!! She is really something. She was totally professional, yet extremely friendly, and she really knows her stuff! She was so patient with this old man and helped me get some of the basic back, but most importantly she helped me mentally. It was incredible how much we had in common, form the things we have done to the people we both know. Sierra South is just the very best paddle store on planet earth."
