Most of my group is waiting to check the weather tomorrow morning before deciding to go this weekend. Saturday is actually looking good, but Sunday could be windy and cooler. If my friends don’t want to go, Saturday in the lower Box is good with me.
I usually try to get an early start to avoid the worst of the afternoon winds in the Box. If we can drop a vehicle at the TJ Bridge takeout, we’d meet there at 8 AM and get on the water by 10 AM. The run takes 4 – 5 hours. We’d likely be finishing between 2 -3 PM.
I attached a map of the Box takeout and the Racecourse launch. Cell phones don’t work in the gorge, but there is a pay phone at the VC.
