Idaho paddling / shuttles May 24, 25, 26 (Lochsa, SF Payette, other...)

We'll be taking off of the Middle Fork on May 23, and are hoping to paddle some other Idaho rivers and creeks on May 24, 25 and/or 26. We're looking to do South Fork Payette or Lochsa, and a couple other good class IV to V- runs.

We're a group of 4 kayakers and will have one truck. Is anyone interested in meeting up?
Are there any good rivers with shuttles of ~10 miles, that can be easily done with a bike?
Any other shuttle suggestions?

I think you'll find hitchhike shuttle really easy on either of those runs. Have a blast. The Lochsa is a zoo that weekend, but really fun.

For the SF Payette, another good option is to drop your gear at the put in and park your car at the take out and one person hitch back up. I have had good luck getting rides.
