Send E-mail to Bob Ribokas

But seriously folks, I have been getting way to much mail from y'all lately and I don't have time to answer it all. I have a real job that I do besides this Grand Canyon stuff and that pays the mortgage. I don't make anything off of the Canyon pages and do it simply out of the goodness of my heart. If I can't cut down on the number of mail messages then I will simply have to shut it off completely. If you want to send an E-mail saying "thank you" for the site or to add some information to it then go right ahead and E-mail away. I appreciate these kinds of messages because I don't have to respond to them.

I also enjoy getting mail from other hikers who have done trips in the Canyon or are looking for info on planning an upcoming trip. If you are just looking for info on the trails or how to get a backcountry permit then try the Backcountry trails section first. If you still have questions then feel free to E-mail.

Most of the mail I get, however, is from people who have a question and are simply too lazy to look for the answer on their own. It seems like they find an E-mail address and they want to talk to a person right away. Well this is the 90's and this is the World Wide Web and it's meant to function without having to deal with people directly. If you are going to send me mail and ask question about the Grand Canyon or the surrounding area could you please at least look at the information on the site first and see if you can find it yourself. Chances are the information that you are looking for is already out there and you don't have to waste my time sending you an E-mail telling you that. If the info is out there that's all I'm going to tell you anyhow so you'll be wasting your own time as well if you haven't looked yourself first.

Also, DO NOT send me mail providing me with a snail-mail address and ask me to send you all the info I have on the Grand Canyon. I hate these requests and this will probably result in your getting flamed. Get with it, the information is there, go find it and print it off yourself. I am not a travel agent!

If you are looking for information on hotels, rates or other services available at the Canyon then go here. If you are having trouble getting through to the number for Fred Harvey to make a reservation that's not my problem, Fred Harvey is notorious for this. If you want to make reservations for anything at the Canyon except for Mule Trips and Phantom Ranch accommodations you can also get these from South Rim Travel in Tusayan. They've got a toll free number and an E-mail address.

If you have basic questions about some aspect of the Canyon then try looking at the FAQ first. If you can't find it there then try the section on General Information, History, What to see and do or the Guided tour. If you are trying to figure out how to get to the Canyon then try the section on How to get there or look at some of the Maps. Info on the weather can be found under Weather. If you haven't found what you're looking for yet then try the Master Index.

Well, assuming you've gone through all that and you still don't have an answer to your question and I haven't totally pissed you off and you still want to send me an E-mail then go right ahead and E-mail Bob, the Canyon nut. If you have a question and you cannot find the answer on the site then I will be more than happy to try and help you. If your question is good enough I can add the information to the site and save someone else some hunting.
