Hells Canyon May 30

Anyone interested in a Hell's Canyon trip launching May 30? So far all groups (raft or kayak) I've tried getting going on my permit haven't happened. I've been considering doing it as a self-support kayak trip, but not surprisingly that's had few takers. At 50-60K (assuming it stays at current levels) it has me debating the wisdom of a solo self support kayak run even with taking it easy and doing lots of scouting and/or portaging as need be.

My current thought had been just running the upper stretch (to Pittsburgh) as a 3 day trip. I figured taking it slow in the upper part and enjoying that area, do some hiking, etc would be good. Though I suspect one could run it in a day at these flows.

Ideally there'd be some boating afterwards up in Idaho before heading back to Colorado the following weekend.

Any thoughts/takers?
