spot is open and thanks kiki
turns out i am now officially looking for a passenger for this trip. i need to clarify that although the person will likely do some rowing, it would be in a support role. in other words, at this time i plan to do the major stuff. this will be my 5th row down the big ditch. i think the low water (8K thru october anyway) will likely make it the most difficult as well.
got some great replies from mountain buzzers and i am following up on those and one may pan out but i wanted to recast the net to see if others are interested. also looking into some options closer to home but i wanted to update this post.
i can't remember what i originally posted but this is a SMALL trip, 3 boats, 6 people.
also wanted to thank KIKI for also letting me know that subs can be made at the last minute, huge help.
