Thanks for all the info-
T-ft, whats the scoop on the flight shuttle? Will they shuttle gear as well?
They can fly directly to mineral bottom? ...beverage prep duly noted.

There is a dirt strip just N. of the mineral put in. Redtail will do it for $2-300 (in '0 for 1-2 people- but call 'em in Moab or Price for currents.Don't plan on any gear more than passenger and sleeping bag. It will likely be a cessna 182. I usually drop my gear @ the put in and maybe rig a little then drive to the strip @ Hite.(In between The mouth of Narrow canyon and the Dirty Devil just off hwy. 92. You can park there, sleep in your car or on the strip and have an early morning pick up.The flight is less than an hour and you are landed less than a 1/4 mile above the put in. If your group is large and you want all vehicles @ the take out multiple flights/planes might be required.
It is a minimum fee for the flight for 1 or 2 passengers-extra for a third- which is max for the 182. A 202 can handle more but costs more to fly. Keep in mind it's an aircraft so weight is a big deal.Leave all the lard butts at the put in to rig and have the petite femme's do the shuttle. You miight save on the pilot tip that way too.

don't believe the hype brooks: get the motor. The wind always blows on powell. The real wienies will be the ones with the surplus of beer because they can't put down their oars long enough to drink it. 30k is a great level and well worth it, but steer clear of the button hole, below capsize. It's all-day "play" if you get in there. A friend of mine who's a ranger in cat said he saw that hole at 32k break a raft frame and rip off every d-ring but one before the boat came out--no shit. have a good trip.
