Ruby Horsethief- Shuttle, Frame & Misc

My girlfriend and I are planning on running Ruby Horsethief on Sunday the 18th, camping overnight and taking out on Monday. Anyone else doing this stretch that might be interested in meeting up and running a shuttle with us? Money and beer can be provided, we just aren't excited to pay $90 for a shuttle. Let me know if your interested. I have a 4runner as well so we have plenty of room. We plan on being there early in the morning so we can be on the river by ten or eleven.

Also has anyone run this stretch recently and can give me an idea of how long it's taking with two days on the river. I understand headwinds can be an issue but without them how long each day is taking, with camping around blackrocks.

If anyone knows where I might be able to get a frame for two days that would be sweet as well. I'm in a 14ft Achilles.

Thanks a bunch.

It is roughly a 13 hour float from fruita with a couple of stops and no real paddeling. My fiance and I did a moonlight float last weekend put on about 330 pm took off about 4-430am fun float. Rim rock I think rents frames also they do a good job shuttleing but are pricey.
