ARTA house – Marion ‘Red’ Hall, shuttle driver

Location: ARTA House
Status: Live River
By: Larry Orman
Date: April 19, 1974

The ARTA house was 14 acres just a few hundred feet from Camp 9 road, home to as many as 30 guides (and two goats) and staging center for Prop. 17 media trips. By 1974, rafting companies were starting to learn it was better to hire real shuttle drivers than trust multi-tasking guides – Marion ‘Red’ Hall was a Sonora school bus driver who had the driest wit and the calmest approach to driving. After a time to get used to the guide world starting in 1974, he became a prized member of the ARTA team, driving for a number of years.  (With Susan Jordan in the back.)
