We're already planning for our annual float down the Lower Salmon (Hammer Creek to Heller Bar)...it's me, the wife, and our three kids (12, 10, and 8 y.o.). We've done this trip every year for the past six years and have found that the trip is much more fun with a larger group...and more efficient. We're planning on launching around July 28 and we usually spend 5-6 days on the river...with one layover day if we have a decent layover campsite that works for the kids. We're looking for other families to join this year...ideally with kids around the same ages. As a caveat, we run a pretty tight schedule to beat the heat and to ensure that we get decent camp sites...on the river by 8:00 am and typically off no later than 2:00 pm. We've tried other schedules and they just don't work...so just know that we're up and running early. We spend 3-4 nights on the Salmon and 1 night on the Snake...yeah, we row out...I like to suffer! We run a 16 foot NRS Outfitter series boat and may bring a small cataraft or duckie for the kids this year. Hit me up if you're interested in joining our party this year...

Sounds like a fun trip. We can't make it this year, we are launching on the Main two days earlier. If you do it again next year post it up and we might be able to join you.

We're doing the same but a day or two later I believe. 5 or 6 kids, family, friends. Probably 15-18 total.
