I just got a permit for Lodore October 27th through 31st...wanna come?
So I just booked a Gates of Lodore permit for October 27th through 31st. I did it mid November last year and it was a bit cold but still a ton of fun. You get the canyon to just your group since there is only one launch per day. I have some group gear and can borrow it from friends if I don't have it, but I'd love to get at least a few more rafts on the trip. I'm totally cool with having as many people as want to come along, so let me know if you are interested.
As long as there are a decent number of rafts to carry gear, I'm cool with Kayakers and IK people as long as they have a good roll and/or good self rescue.
Cost wise, it'll be equal share of the $200 permit fee, Food and Shuttle costs. You'll need to get yourself there on your own dime too. BYO on booze as well.
Plan is to put on before noon on the 27th, camp at Pot Creek or Kolb first night, Limestone or Wild Mountain Second Night, one of the Jones Hole camps 3rd night and either layover day 4 or camp at the Cove on day 4 and takeout on the 31st depending on how people feel. Those are super easy days, which works since the days are pretty short.
Post up here or shoot me a PM if you are interested. I literally just booked it without getting anyone on board, so hopefully we can get some people going.
