    The journey began when I (Peter) got a summer job in 1978 working as a river guide on West Virginia’s New and Gauley Rivers. In 1979, I came to Idaho to work longer trips on the Salmon and Selway Rivers. It was exciting work, meeting great people, running rapids, sleeping under the stars. I learned that dynamic things could happen on the river—magical things! It was tremendously fulfilling. In 2002, we decided to build River Dance Lodge, Idaho’s Outdoor Adventure Resort. To this end, we bought five acres that included an older restaurant building situated on the banks of the congressionally protected Wild & Scenic Clearwater River in North Central Idaho, close to the 1.3 million acre Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness Area and three miles from the historic Lewis and Clark Trail.
