Everett Potter, world-renowned travel columnist, interviewed George Wendt, founder and president of O.A.R.S. whitewater rafting company in this month’s The Interview on Everett Potter’s Travel Report.
As reported, Wendt “got into river rafting as a component of my educational studies at UCLA in the early 1960s. Because of my interest in the outdoors – honed through my time as a Scout as I earned the rank of Eagle, I joined the Bruin Mountaineers – a group that did hiking, rock climbing, caving, skiing and mountaineering. One summer, one of the group organized a trip on the Colorado River going through Glen Canyon. Right after school got out in June, we headed to Utah for a 10-day river trip. This experience changed my life!”
