    Default Going out of rafting business sale

    Just saw this on Craig's list. A rafting company in Valdez has bit the dust. Mike has been running this business for a long time and I'm sure he has a large selection of stuff. Sad to see him go. There is a lot of history in this.

    Going out of business sale.....lifejackets, raingear, boots, rafts, oars,
    drybags, dryboxes, wesuits, paddles, frames, vans, trailers, busses;
    almost anything you might want in rafting gear.......50 to 75% off retail
    prices.

    Call Mike @ 1-907-831-0493

    yes and I called and left a message to call me back about some items and 24 hrs later have no call back yet. Pretty hard to buy anything if they won't call back.

    I talked to him Friday and he said his stuff is in Valdez but he won't be there himself until Wednesday (tomorrow), he will pull it out of storage then and may be more responsive.

    i knew Mike Buck while i was down there for 7 years... he will be a good guy to deal with, and was always good at taking care of his gear and equipment... his is the little cabins just north of Keystone canyon on the left as you go into valdez...

    Default Mike Buck

    Going out of business, or changing vocations, Is never an easy thing. I personally have know Mike, for over 20 yrs. and have boated with him in two international rafting world championships. What he says is what you get!! If he has not answered you calls, there is a reason. This is only a computer thing!!
    He will get back with you and is a very honest man.
