intermediate kayaker needs help picking river for multi-day trip
Iím a kayaker thatís always dreamed of one of the classic Western multi-day river trips. Iím finally in a position to maybe make it happen this September.
I havenít paddled much lately due to living overseas in the desert, but Iím a solid III+ (and would be comfortable in IV after a day or two of tune up.)
Iím looking for a river for a 3 to 6 day trip, supported with rafts and guides. Great if I have the option to portage/sit out and ride the guide boat through the bigger stuff Iím not comfortable with.
Something like the Main Salmon sounds right, but I donít know about September levels.
Iím sure there are other options out there that I donít know about.
I appreciate pointing me toward any other rivers I should consider.
[The other option would be a 5 day kayak school to push me to the next level. Iíd also be up for that, though it would lack the feel of a multi-day ďdescentĒ (for lack of a better word.)]
Thanks for any reply.
