Looking for other rafters

Hi, I have created a group on called Rivers, Trails, and Spokes.

This is a fairly new group but we have some motivate people who have gone through the river permit application process. So far, we've obtained a Westwater permit, a Main Salmon permit in September, and a 2010 August GC small group permit. I would also like to put together weekend trips on Brown's, The Numbers, and Royal Gorge. I am looking for other folks with boats that have a similar river philosophy to join.

My river trip philosophy is: River First (safety and "leaving no trace"), Group Second, and Self Third. I am an old school river guide - my trips are not floating bar parties - alcohol consumption is in moderation and recreational drugs are not permitted.

My trips are cost and work sharing. I believe that rafting equipment is part of the cost of a trip, so the folks who do not bring rafts and other equipment pay for more of the food and other trip costs. I also collect a damage deposit from everyone. When the trip is over and all receipts collected, I refund what is left to the trip participants.

I also save a guest spot for those that are bringing a raft.

If you are interested, please check out the group and if it sounds good to you, please join - it's free. So far, it looks like we have a very nice group of people of various ages.

I'm pretty sure that's against the rules for private trips.
