jvwoods, we'd love to run with your family. We'll be in Vail on the tail end of a camping trip in Moab during the first week of June, before we head to camp outside of Nederland...no boating on that trip, but it might be nice to meet up, while I'm in Vail for work.
The fam has already been doing a lot of hiking, camping, etc. My husband and I have been guides for 18/10 years respectively...so we aren't new to river, and we'd be boating with people of equal or more experience. We take safety pretty seriously...and while river/camping is pretty risky...lots of things are. But, I agree, every family is different. I may get out there and totally regret the trip. We'll start slow, low and safe.
