There you have had a 'service' above and beyond the call of duty. As for Salmo's post .... my Jeep (normally) was left at the take out so the shuttle was for the Guide ... assuming he wanted to get his truck/trailer back. That we can assume?Over the years I've had shuttle drivers really go above and beyond the call of duty. For instance, last winter I had the river I was on freeze bank to bank on the first night of a five day trip. After hiking out and hitch hiking into the town where the shuttle driver lives, she just smiled and gave me a ride to the takeout where she had already moved my truck. Easily an hour out of her day. She wouldn't take an extra dime from me. So yeah, I leave an extra ten bucks for her now...every time. Good shuttle drivers in my part of the world are worth their weight in gold.
I don't tip a shuttle unless something justified it and that's happened once in the last 20 years. I tipped the gal who shuttled my rig last December after my dumb a$$ let my boat float away and I went for a swim in the Bighorn. She didn't hesitate to get my rig to me several hours early, so it was an unscheduled run for her. I think I handed her a $20 tip.
