Doug Tims receives IOGA Lifetime Membership Award

For decades, IOGA has been blessed to have Doug Tims as an active member and leader. He was elected to the IOGA board of directors soon after becoming a licensed outfitter on the Middle Fork of the Salmon in the late 1980s. He served as both board vice president and president of the IOGA.
Tims has a knack for telling colorful stories with his telltale Mississippi accent.
...
Although Tims' recently published book, "Merciless Eden," written with his wife, Phyllis, is not really a book about outfitting per se, he makes many references to the outfitting industry, presenting both the joys and challenges inherent in the profession. The history and politics of outfitting is a passion. And now he gets to live at Campbell's Ferry, on the banks of the Salmon River.
"Doug has honored our industry with decades of passion and support for our profession. As one colleague recently remarked, "Doug put IOGA and outfitters ahead of his own agenda. His word is his bond. Congratulations, Doug, on your outfitting career, one that is truly worthy of IOGA Honorary Lifetime membership," Simonds said to loud applause at the IOGA annual meeting.

"I can't tell you how much this means to me," Tims said. "Forty years ago, I went on a trip in Hells Canyon with Curtis Chang (OARS), and then we did a Lower Salmon trip and a Middle Fork trip in 1980. By then, I was hooked, and I fell in love with Idaho."
Tims dropped his insurance business, bought an ownership interest in Maravia, a raft and inflatables manufacturing company, and bought a Middle Fork of the Salmon, and later a Selway River outfitting business. He was infatuated with rivers.

After meeting a few outfitters, Tims wanted to get involved with IOGA, he recalls. "This old Mississippi boy felt really lucky to be associated with this great group of people. I just love to hang out with you guys! Tims says.
...
Living in a remote homestead in the middle of the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness can be both "beautiful and brutal," Tims says.
"Sometimes I hear voices of those pioneers when I'm out working on building fence," he says, noting that he has much respect for the people who tried to eke out a living in such a remote and unforgiving area.
Tims also touches on the history of the Central Idaho Wilderness Act in the book, the law that created "the Frank," and he describes how former Idaho Gov.

It's a beautiful place, and Doug and Phyllis can tell you all about it.
"Merciless Eden", which retails for $19.95, is available from Amazon.com and Cascade Outfitters. Doug also can be reached on his Facebook page.
