ErgoErgo

It’s almost summertime and you know what that means! Everyone wants to turn their mom/dad bods into beach bods. Unfortunately, the truth of the matter is that by the time summer comes, most people will give up on slimming down for their dream bikini or for those Instagram selfies. We’ve all been there. We’ve all said we’re going to shed a few pounds and then quit on our journey. I’d love to offer an option that can be incorporated into your everyday routine so that you can lead a healthier lifestyle.

ErgoErgo is an extraordinary seating concept combining the benefits of active sitting with a bold contemporary design. ErgoErgo encourages us to sit as nature intended. Rock gently in any direction to build strength & flexibility. ErgoErgo encourages us to sit as nature intended – your body feels a new ease and freedom. The core muscles are engaged, the spine achieves its natural curve, the pelvis gently moves, circulation improves and the legs stretch.

With its durable quality, timeless design, and fun colors, you can sit joyfully for years to come and enjoy a stool that also doubles as a piece of art! I’d love to work on a story that will offer your audience a new year’s resolution that is fun, and easy to keep!

ErgoErgo: Perfect for working and relaxing. Use it in offices, schools, libraries, dorms, hotels, healthcare facilities…the possibilities are endless. ErgoErgo is great public seating. And it’s compact enough for the smallest space. ErgoErgo compresses slightly when you sit on it to the height of a standard chair, which makes it perfect for a standard desk height.

ExtraErgo: ExtraErgo offers all the benefits of ErgoErgo. Your body is free to move, your core is engaged. With its larger seat, Extra Ergo provides more comfort for taller, larger people, and more stability for every body.

KidsErgo: The revolutionary KidsErgo is the safe and healthy way to sit. Children are happier and learn better when they can sit actively. Teachers report that students sitting on KidsErgo often improve significantly in posture, concentration, participation, and behavior. Children love KidsErgo’s friendly shape and its rainbow of bright colors.

Holiday River Expeditions Notes Positive Outlook For a Stellar River Rafting Season Thanks to an Exemplary Snow Pack

 Forget crystal balls. The snow says it all.

For over half a century Holiday River Expeditions has looked to the mountains to forecast upcoming rafting seasons. Winter snows turn into spring runoff. Thus far, a stormy and snow-packed winter in the Rockies predicts a robust 2019 rafting season in the mountain and desert southwest.

“We’re expecting to have a lot of fun in 2019, thanks to Mother Nature and year-to-date bookings that are up 10 percent over the same time last year,” said Holiday River Expeditions’ longtime sales manager and spokeswoman Karen Johnson.

Higher river flows mean that guests on all of Holiday’s rafting trips will have more off-river time to hike, enjoy the beach, relax or explore the side canyons from camp and enroute between camps.

“Plus high water gives our guests an Adrenaline-rush and thrill in a carefully secured, calculated manner,” Johnson added.

As of today, snow pack affecting the Colorado River Basin is running 116 percent of the February 27th average, a good sign for the upcoming rafting season on the Colorado, Yampa and Green rivers. Among Holiday River Expeditions’ whitewater rafting trips most affected by high runoff are those on the Yampa River in the heart of Dinosaur National Monument. This undammed, free-flowing river benefits greatly from unfettered spring runoff that also makes its way to Desolation Canyon (on the Green River) and Cataract Canyon (after confluence with the Colorado River).

Other rafting trips influenced by abundant snow pack are those on the Colorado River in both Westwater Canyon and further along in Cataract Canyon cutting through the heart of Canyonlands National Park.

One fact, worthy of note, helps set Holiday apart from most other operators on the river. They are the only rafting outfitter that literally goes with the flow exclusively on all trips by running these rivers by oar-power only, without motorized rafts or motorized support.

“Oar-power is the most natural way to experience the river and the absence of motors makes high water trips as exciting as it gets. Rafters experience the rush of wind, a chatty raven or a churning rapid absent the drone and smell of a motorized raft,” said Tim Gaylord, Director of Operations and Holiday guide since 1978.

Even in high water, when other companies call on motorized boats to stay the course, Holiday instead employs triple rigs, usually from late May to early July in Cataract Canyon when water levels get above 25-30,000 CFS and higher. The rigs are three 18-foot rafts lashed side by side to form one larger raft. It is maneuvered by two guides, sweep-style, each using one oar.

“These rafts are incredibly stable and the rigging allows them to flex in many ways. They allow us to continue to use only oar-powered rafts in even the highest water,” noted Gaylord.

See this short video that will help illustrate this technique.

A few other companies continue to use row/paddle rafts and dories in high water; but they support their use with larger motorized rafts for, among others, assistance in moving non-motor rafts downstream in the flatwater sections. Holiday is the only one that does not use a motor at all (except when exiting the Lake Powell section on the last day of the Cataract trip and then it is only introduced by using a tow-boat that motors up from the downstream takeout at Hite Marina.)
