Peter Grubb & Betsy Bowen

Founders

Having discovered whitewater raft guiding on the East Coast while attending college, Peter moved to Idaho in 1979 and founded ROW as a company focused on wilderness rafting trips.  His exposure to the earth's communities through travel, coupled with attendance at St. John's College in Annapolis, Maryland where he studied the "Great Books," mythology, and western civilization, led he and Betsy to Turkey in 1984 where they launched ROW's first international trip.  ROW has since branched out to over 25 countries throughout the world and Peter usually does the initial research and new tour development.  Peter has a passion for nature, travel, reading and learning and believes strongly in the positive power of travel and the ways it can improve the lives of everyone touched.  He speaks French, basic Spanish, plays the guitar and is still very involved in the company, wearing a number of hats and guiding in the field as time allows.  He has served on a number of Boards, including the Idaho Outfitters and Guides Association,  Idaho Rivers United, the Spokane Center for Justice, and the America Outdoors Association. 

Co-owner of ROW, Betsy Bowen was a professional ceramicist prior to her immersion in ROW, and has always been an anchor in the sometimes turbulent seas of business.  A favorite among guides, Betsy led many of ROW's early rafting trips as well as yachting tours to Greece, Croatia and Turkey.  Once her daughter Mariah and son Jonah were born in the early 1990's she transitioned to the challenging world of motherhood, imparting to her children her passions of skiing, art, creativity and giving to others. She has been sanctioned as the "Director of Other Stuff" because of her wide variety of talents including project management, plumbing, wiring and logistical expertise. Her artistic eye is evidenced throughout ROW as well.  Nowadays she is less involved in the day-to-day doings of ROW, but remains a vital part of our team.

Juggling the demands of the ROW Family of Companies (ROW Adventures, Adventure Unbound, Sea Kayak Adventures) keeps life vibrant and Betsy and Peter are both a wealth of knowledge, experience, and most importantly, care and support for the entire team.

ROW Adventures Adventure Consultant

Lexi Schultz

Adventure Consultant

Lexi was born and raised primarily in the land of the Green Bay Packers, Wisconsin. After graduating high school, she attended Winona State University and graduated with a triple major of Business Administration, Recreation and Tourism, and Therapeutic Recreation. 

While in college, she studied abroad in New Zealand and Australia in a very non-traditional setting; rather than attending a university, professors from Winona and local guides took their group around the North and South island of New Zealand and from Sydney to Brisbane in Australia, hosting "classes" on the beach, in hostel common rooms, and even while experiencing extreme sports such as white water rafting, skydiving, and bungy jumping. 

Lexi has always been a bit of a vagabond, enjoying the opportunity to travel and experience different people, places, and cultures. She completed three internships for her college degree- she was a recreation therapy intern at a psychiatric state hospital in California, she was a camp cook for Camp Onaway on an island in Wisconsin, and she was a mate for a cruise company in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. 

She hoped to complete a Peace Corps experience after these opportunities, but Covid had different plans. Instead, she made a small pivot to AmeriCorps, where she completed a VISTA year, working with a non-profit in Billings, Montana, that seeks to end human trafficking. She got hooked on the AmeriCorps' mission and then completed a year as an NCCC Team Leader- where she lived with her team of 9 other individuals and worked on projects such as fire disaster preparation in California, refugee resettlement in New Mexico, taxes in Seattle, and summer camp restoration in California and Utah. 

After that, her continued desire to travel led her on a two month Europe trip where she visited 8 countries and 2 city states, with many adventures in the middle.

To quote Pitbull, you could say that Lexi has "been there, done that" about a lot of places and activities and she loves nothing more than to share that with others! She feels passionately about the opportunity to help others experience the world.

Megan Ferguson

Adventure Consultant

Megan was born and raised in Cataldo, Idaho. Growing up, she always had a passion for the outdoors which is what pushed her into starting into wildland fire. After 5 seasons of traveling the United States for fire and finishing her degree at Boise State in business administration with a minor in entrepreneurship, her love of the outdoors drove her back home. 

Wanting a more normal work/ life balance, Megan decided to leave the fire industry and started at ROW. She now shares her passion for the outdoors with every guest wanting to find a trip in which they can tell their own adventure stories. 

When she is off the clock, you can find her summiting mountains, on the ski slope, or chasing trophy trout (pictured). No matter what she’s doing, she brings a can-do attitude and enough energy to power a small city.

Monica Sanchez

Baja Naturalist and Sea Kayak Guide

Now in her fifth season with ROW Sea Kayak Adventures in Baja, Monica loves the water, and everything surrounding it. She is especially passionate about whales and dolphins. Monica always dreamt of being a wilderness explorer like the journalists in National Geographer magazine. Due to her love for both the ocean and marine mammals, she decided to work at an aquarium in the Caribbean where she worked as a dolphin and sea lion trainer for a couple of years.

While she loved being so close to the animals, she realized she would rather see them in the wild, in their natural habitat. Monica discovered Sea Kayak Adventures was looking to hire a naturalist for their Baja whale watching tours, and applied. The day she was hired was "one of the best days of my life; my dream came true. I will be in the wilderness, observing whales and dolphins in their natural habitat."

Monica loves that every day as a guide is a new adventure, a new experience, and a surprise, where the unexpected is the norm. She loves sharing her excitement and passion for nature with guests, as well as hearing about their stories. She loves knowing that the time she shared with them in nature gave them something special that they will remember for the rest of their life.  When she's not guiding, Monica likes to hike, explore, and travel. She also loves reading about marine life and nature, and discovering new places where she can practice stand-up paddle boarding. In the off-season, Monica works as a reporter.

Jen Klingensmith

River Guide

Originally from Ithaca, New York, Jen now calls Oregon “home” and loves how many amazing outdoor spaces the state has to explore. She first got into rafting after being invited onto a Rogue River trip in 2010 and said that she immediately purchased her own raft and started learning how to row. Since that day, she’s spent as many days on the river as possible and believes the trip was a catalyst for so many positive changes in her life. Eight years later, she quit her desk job and became a guide, running the same river where her rafting journey began. Jen holds a Bachelor of Science from Cornell University and studied law at the University of Oregon, and describes herself as an “excellent bread baker”. When not on the river, she’s at her small hobby farm where she has chickens and cattle (as well as the occasional sheep, goats, and pigs), as well as 600 dwarfing apple trees for making apple cider.

Guest Service Admin at ROW Adventures

Lucas Ludwig

Guest Service Admin & RAC Sales

Raised in Sandpoint Idaho and finishing high school in the greater Seattle area. Lucas has a pretty unique story. Lucas started out as a musician, playing guitar in a rock band and at the age of 17, he started playing shows and touring the country. He joined a band that was signed to a subsidiary label under Universal Music Group which started his career in music. However, being on tour and away from home 290 days out of the year comes with its own set of challenges. At the age of 24, he left his band to start a new chapter. Lucas has always had a knack for the outdoors. Especially Fishing. When he moved back to Idaho, he fully immersed himself into fly fishing. If you're a creative person, you can't lock that away. So he figured he'd channel his creativity through filming/photography. Pairing his passion for Fly Fishing and Art, these skill sets have given him awesome opportunities in the Fly Fishing Industry. Before coming to ROW, Lucas sold cars full time and in his spare time, he worked for Idaho Fish and Game as a fisheries technician teaching fishing skills to the public, working on ad-fluvial trout research, all the way to habitat restoration projects for waterfowl in the North Idaho area. He saw ROW as an opportunity to bridge the gap between his personal interest and professional life. You can usually find Lucas in the cold water tributaries of Idaho chasing elusive Bull Trout or on the shores of Pyramid Lake Nevada in search of his 20lb Cutthroat Trout.
