Westwater Trip August 7th and 8th - Raft Support Needed

I have a Westwater Permit for August 7th and 8th. We are mostly a group of kayakers that need raft support. Ideally I need 2 gear rafts and 1 paddle raft to take down around 4 to 7 passengers. We don't have any of the required camping items (i.e. fire pan, groover, first aid kit, kitchen setup, stove) and I was hoping that the rafters could provide that (I'm thinking most people with a raft setup have this stuff already). The paddle raft will need to provide paddles for the passengers as well as life vests (hopefully). Please post here or PM me if you are interested. We plan to meet at the put-in on friday night August 6th. We will run shuttle in the morning of Aug 7th and plan to overnight in the canyon. Most of us are coming from Denver. We all are out to have a good time, enjoy the camping and whitewater, and yes do a little partying. Let me know if you are interested. Thanks.

Hi. I'm interested. I have a 17ft cat that holds quite a bit of gear and I own about any gear that might be needed. There would be two of us. I'm experienced (read old!) but boat with yakers and young people all the time so cool with most things that aren't dangerous. My e-mail is

I am a kayaker first and rafter second. I own a a raft and have paddles, a frame, extra universal pfds, and helmets. I have a little camping stuff but it is kind of split up between two locations right now. I would be happy to paddle a raft for you, I can gear boat but would honestly rather Paddle. I am experienced as I worked as a guide for three years and have a lot of private trips as well. I have a friend in silverthorne who has a 15 ft raft that works well for gear boating if you need someone else I can talk to him. We were discussing doing a trip together anyway. Typical paddler here I enjoy pbr and all that the river has to offer. my email is so feel free to email me, just tell me a little about your group and level of experience. Hope to hear from you.

Thanks Jeff and Aaron. Yes I will take you up on your offers! I'll send an email to the both of you in a few minutes. Aaron I'll probably take you up on inviting your friend from Silverthorne to bring a raft too.
