The Official Cooking Pot of Utah?

One of the hardest things about writing this newsletter each month is deciding on a topic.  The difficulty usually lies in having too much, not too little, to write about.  Whether it’s things going on at AAE, recent travel adventures, or updates on your favorite guides, each month I have to…

Training Day For Colorado Rafting Guides

‘Shocked’ is exactly the word I would use to describe the look on our first-year guide trainees faces when they arrived at our headquarters in Buena Vista, CO a week ago today.  These 15 trainees (hand-picked by Mike & Paul from over 200 applicants) come to us from all over the country (Michigan, Tennessee,…

Entering our fifth year of ownership here at AAE, I’m not sure if we can still consider ourselves new business owners anymore.  Regardless, we continue to learn at an amazing pace.  The old saying ‘if I knew then, what I know now’ has never rang so true, as it has…

Hello world!
Hello world!

Welcome to AAE’s First Ever Blog!  This is Amber Kissack, co-owner of American Adventure Expeditions. As we jump feet first into a brand new decade, we’ve decided that it’s time for us to throw our hat into the ring of social media.  But we’re just simple outdoorsy people, unassuming and unapologetic, never conforming to ‘the man’…and certainly…
