Searching for a Grand invite

Ok- I know a lot of people get sick of these, but I'm going to give it a shot.

My wife and I are looking to get on a Grand trip this spring/ summer/ fall.

We are both 29 years old, experienced guides, I was a Senior Guide and Instructor, as well as a Federal River Ranger (I promise I am not a stick in the mud.) We have rowed the Grand twice, and have lots of Class IV/V guiding experience. I am also an Advanced Swiftwater Rescue Tech. and spent 6 years on a professional water rescue team. I am a Paramedic, she is a Firefighter/ EMT.

We aren't fanatical about anything (except boating,) and can get a long with anyone. Also enjoy a good campfire party.

We have an 18 foot self bailer and any group gear needed. Boat has two coolers, two dryboxes, 1 bay of wet dunnage, and plenty of extra storage space. If traveling from Colorado, we can also offer our 15 passenger van and 22 foot trailer for the journey. I am a hell of a camp cook. She sucks at cooking, but can sure clean up well, carry heavy things, and knows her way around a groover.

This year will be our last opportunity to to the Grand together, Hoping that we can be a part of your trip.

Thanks for your consideration!

Will and Ivy.

Will and Ivy, if you want to team up with another chill couple for better odds on a 2013 permit this February let me know. We want to do 4-5 boats and 4-5 couples, no more.
