Need some info on the Lower Owyhee

Im planning on doing Rome to Birch Creek on Wednesday in IK's. I have not done this river before and had a couple questions.

1 - Is 3 days enough to allow to do this trip? We will be traveling light and plan on covering 10-15 miles per day. Is this reasonable?

2 - I know that you are not suppose to take bag toilets on this river, are the ranger very picky about what you take? Im taking a small ammo can, will they require me to have a large one, its just 2 people.

3 - What does the river look like a 2k? Anything to watch out for?

4 - Any suggestions on campsites? I have been looking at my map, but dont have any beta on sites at this flow.

I called the BLM office and they had NO idea what they were talking about, the guy didn't even know what a rocket box was, or if there were minimum side dimensions for a fire pan.
Thanks for the help! I appreciate it.

I recommend you touch base with the Idaho Whitewater site, on yahoo. There are lots of people there with experience that likely don't monitor this site. Just another good source of info.
