Rafael Acuna

Rafael Acuna, whitewater guide for ARTA river tripsYou know that guy who can play the guitar and sing and smile and NOT be obnoxious? Or the guy who can listen to you talk about your childhood and your accomplishments and your children (not to mention your disappointments and pet-peeves) and still be interested and engaged (not to mention encouraging)? Or the guy you find yourself enthusiastically following even though no one ever said he was the leader? You know the guy who can make you appreciate the outdoors and get excited about the wilderness and be thankful for Mother Nature even when it is pouring rain and your tent just blew into the river? Or the guy who you feel like you’ve known for years even though you just met him yesterday? Or the guy you want your sister to marry (or, heck, for that matter, the guy you want anyone in your family to marry)? You know all those guys? Then you know Rafa.
