We're launching below the Flaming Gorge dam on March 20, Lodore 3/23, Deso 4/2, Cat around April 21st, and the Grand Canyon to South Cove on 4/26. There are 3 of us doing the whole thing so far. The rest of our Grand Canyon crew is picking us up at Dirty Devil and driving around the dam. We'll grocery shop and float on the stretch above Lee's the day before we run the Canyon.
The only thing we're not floating is the stretch of river above Flaming Gorge reservoir and the lakes. It should be a pretty good time, close to 800 miles. March 20-May 20 on the river!
Permits are on lockdown so if anyone wants to join us for any or all of it, let me know. There aren't Grand Canyon spots unless you're willing to do the whole thing, super duper cool with huge boobs, and have your own equipment, but Lodore, Deso, and Cataract will have room on the permits. It would be nice to have someone meet us and restock us along the way, say at Deso or Mineral Bottom...
