Looking for experienced rowers for Grand Canyon trip; Dec 30, 2010

Looking for people with rowing experience (not necessarily on the canyon itself) who are interested in a relaxing trip with a mellow crew. Launch date is Dec 30, 2010. Trip is 25 days. If interested email me with info about yourself, your experiences, etc. Feel free to ask any questions.

Good Luck getting rowers. It is very easy to get a December or January launch so most folks who want one can simply get their own and take friends. Some people get one every year. You might consider teaming up with another trip if you would like to be part of a larger group than you can recruit yourself.

On the plus side you have almost a year to get folks together and plan. You will have the river largely to yourselves and have mostly pleasant weather for the dry hikes. In late-October/early November we only encountered 4 other groups, and only once had to go to a secondary camp site. Enjoy your trip.

Thanks. Not everyone is going to want to lead a trip either. I'm not necessarily looking to fill the permit. Generally prefer smaller groups but would fill it to save $. So far got 1 confirmed rower and a bunch interested.

Dec. 30 Canyon trip

I'm interested in your Dec. trip. Is there still a slot? I've been down 5 times all of which were in the winter. Three of the floats were my permits so I have experience in putting together a trip as well as boating the Canyon at that time of the year. Would love to hear from you. Thanks.
