[QUOTE=jademann;378740]Well I just want to experience a little Colorado on a budget. If there was a pick up point right at the estuary I would take it but there doesn't seem to be one.
I have also been looking carefully at the other peoples pictures on Google. The river should be low after summer but will depend on recent rains. Looking at the pictures I will steer left of the central wave avoiding the sharp rocks. Apart from this one point it seems a nice way to get into river rafting.
I have done just about every other type of boating. Built my own inflatable sail boat and sailed 10 miles out to sea. Took a 2 man Ocean catamaran 4 miles into the Caribbean last year. Have to start somewhere!
Actually my main reason for posting was are there any restrictions for taking a van to these places? Still a bit concerned about the proposed lake exit though after randaddy's coments.[/QUOTE
If you are looking to experience the Colorado, consider having your raft back hauled from Lee's Ferry to the dam....15 miles of flat water. 4-5 hours from Phoenix, here's a link for more info:
