Grand Canyon Trip August 2010

Hey all- starting to plan a trip to the Grand Canyon for next summer- we have a permit for launch August 30, 2010, and are looking for oarsmen (and women!) who have done the river before- we're primarily a group of kayakers, new to the Grand Canyon trip (we have one kayaker in the group who has done the trip 3 times, but he's the only one with experience), so we're looking for some others with more experience for the boats. We're a pretty laid back group, mostly earth scientists, just trying to get started planning early since we haven't done this before. If anyone is interested, let me know- we need at least 4 people. We're still in early planning stages, so I don't have a firm cost (we'll do it as economically as we can comfortably do so- a lot of grad students in our group) or many other details at this point (other than launch date, and pretty sure we plan on using an outfitter for food and such), but would love to start talking with anyone interested in joining us, and would greatly appreciate any planning tips anyone has!

Yahoo groups has some good stuff to plan with. Look in the files and links too.

gcpba : Grand Canyon Private Boaters Association

Rafting_Grand_Canyon : Rafting Grand Canyon

A lot of info in here.

Brady Black has a great reputation and seems very easy to work with.
Not had his food ( we did our own ) but have heard good reviews.

Moenkopi Riverworks: Grand Canyon River Rentals


Good luck. Feel free to pm me for more planning info. Unfortunately that time of year would be almost impossible for me to go. So I am not trying to get on the trip.
