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...
