We have large groups, (20+) and usually max out a Rogue permit and could bring more. Multiple families = almost 1/2 of the trip are kids, (6-14).

All trip expenses except alcohol are split per person.

Whatever it takes to make the trip happen = trip expense. Shuttles, permits, boat rentals, food, etc. Everyone is responsible for getting themselves there. There are no discounts for being a kid or penalties for not having your own raft.

An approximate deposit is due a month ahead of time for working capital, (buying food). One person plans/purchases food. All the adults used to be guides so it's not that hard. The banker keeps track of the total and bankroles the rest. Within a week or so post trip and after everything is totaled people either pay the banker or get a refund.

For us, it's about being on the river with my best friends and our kids. This is the easiest for us. We try and keep the nickel and dimeing to a minimum.

We don't take kayakers on multi-day trips (nothing against kayakers, there just aren't any in our group). If we did they would pay part of the gas for rafts, based on mileage, giving preference to the rafting group that carried their gear.
