pair of couples wanted for late July middle main combo
Ok so here is the deal. This year through draws and cancellations we were able to procure not one but two permits among our group of friends (middle and main salmon). Plus the dates have aligned so we have the opportunity of a lifetime to turn the corner.
The problems is most of our "hard core" boating friends have essentially "moved on" (family, jobs, etc) and cannot be part of this this awesome trip. As I say, its all about priorities.
Rather than being "that jerk" who lucks out and then only takes four people on his sojourn, I figure this would be a great opportunity to share the river with some lucky couples who can spare the time and want to partake in this epic adventure.
Here is what we want:
two fun couples (aged 30-50) with No children. Personally at this point my wife and I are completely sick of breeders.
Can be married, partners, whatever. No funny business implied nor will be tolerated. We just don't want some dude showing up with his best friend saying "guess what, wife left me for vegas and I'm bringing an alternate". If that's your game, you and your dude friend will spend 10 nights at Boundary creek.
You need to have your own boat and your own skills. I won't mind helping you if you get in trouble but I don't want to feel responsible for your safety other provide the standard level of assistance of a fellow boater. I've helped NOOBIES down the river on my permit and its too much stress.
You need to be able to do the full trip. No "I'll run the middle". So that means launch date 7/19 at boundary creek and depart date TBD but likely july 30.
you need to be essentially self sufficient, able to prepare your own meals and share a kitchen. Anything more is bonus, but due to logistics on where you likely live vs where we live I am not anticipating any "pre planning" parties other than to include you in on the emails of our own planning.
If you can afford the time, and want to be part of a trip with a bunch of mostly fortysomethings (oh god is that what we are now?) who have been rafting for close to 20 years, we are a fun group to be with. Right now its looking like our group is two girls and three guys. I'd like to be under 10 although at maximum we can only afford 6 nights on the middle and our existing main permit is 7/24 so unless we pickup a 7/25 cancellation we are currently budgeted for 5 nights on the middle.
Please PM me if you meet these qualifications are interested.
