Mickey and Josh Sheppard started this business a year ago to help our community and travelers have fun by renting all kinds of water and land toys. Family is very important to the Sheppards and have spent lots of time having fun together and testing new equipment. Their rentals include; Wave runners, jet skis, a boat, 4 wheeler ATVs, Razor (RZR) Mule UTV, snow mobiles, water tramp, kayak, and safety equipment to go with these toys. They also offer knee boards, tubes, and wake boards. All larger rentals come with their own trailers. Normal hours are 9am to 5pm, however, the Sheppards are very active in their children's lives, which sometimes means that they are not always in the office. They do have their business phone with them at all times during office hours.

Uintah Basin air quality and its impacts on fetal and infant health have lately received a great deal of attention from local and national media. I have hesitated to add my opinions about this issue to the others that have already been expressed especially because I worry that keeping the issue in the forefront will only serve to aggravate the suffering of those who have experienced stillbirth or other health problems. I hope, however, that I can provide information that helps put Uintah Basin air quality concerns in a correct light.
