Grand Canyon! Last minute opening

Launch date is Jan 16th. Take-out at Diamond Feb 5th.

We have an opening for someone who wants to row. All the gear is set and dialed in, we are renting two 18' maravias from PRO, PRO pack food, the rest of the gear is ours, but good.

We will have 7 people on the first half and 5 on the second. Two kayakers, others on the rafts. Lost two people to accidents (one blown knee and one broken wrist, unrelated incidents). Now, we are in a scramble to find a qualified oarsman for the second half. We would prefer you come for the whole float because the food is already bought and just to get to know you before you take the captain's seat for the second half.

If you are mellow, hearty enough for a winter trip and up for it, please contact me right away! We are going to have a blast.


PS It would also be an option to kayak the first half and row the second if that sounds good to you.

The short time frame is going to make this really tough for you, but the GCPBA Yahoogroup is another possibility to try.

Hope this helps, and good luck.
