Thanks for getting back to me. I don't frequent this site all that often either.
I have had to cancel the trip for this year, hoping to put another permit in for next year.
I'll give you a call. Would like to hear about your experiences on the Firth.
Just read an older post, where you mention having done the Firth in Soar canoes that caught my interest. I was planning on doing the Firth in 2016 or 2017. I'll be taking a 16 ft raft, and possibly supporting a couple in a soar. Any words of advice for them? I figure if it gets too rough fir them, they could just jump on the raft fir the more difficult sections.
