When Sean and Ginger Glaccum look wilderness in the eye, wilderness always blinks first. Sean, a licensed river guide for more than 14 years, and Ginger, an accomplished tour leader and photographer, have conquered rivers throughout the United States, Africa, Nepal, and India. Sean boasts certifications as a wilderness first responder and outdoor emergency medical-care provider, and Ginger has survived the croc-infested waters of the Zambezi river. Together, they lead adventurers through Idaho waterways on Payette River Company's half-, full-, and multiday whitewater rafting trips. They help visitors navigate four designated sections of the south fork of the Payette River, taking them plunging through Class II, III, and IV rapids, traversing rocky outcrops, and paddling through picturesque local scenery. On some trips, they also make stops at local swimming holes and the Kirkham Hot Springs.
A competitive shooter since he was a teenager, Mike Wirth began teaching responsible firearms operations during college. Between bouts of studying for his degree in mechanical engineering, he showed friends and classmates the firearms basics, such as marksmanship fundamentals, proper cleaning and storage, and how to smelt each bullet by hand.
Now teamed with business partner Aaron Goodfellow, Wirth continues training clients in responsible armed defense. On the outdoor ranges shared with Parma Rod and Gun Club, he and Goodfellow lead classes focused on handgun operations, teaching guests skills from swapping magazines to courteous behaviors when on the range.
