Grand Canyon March 08

OK...I have a permit for the G.C. and I have space for up to 16 people in my group for a March 08 expedition.

I have some slots filled, but have more open.

Group selection is a very important task, that being said, are there any experienced rafters (willing to oar a big raft and carry gear) that would be interested?

The group so far is multi aged, open minded, with many maybes. Selection would be based on experience, attittude and compatibility. I am looking for folks that will add something special to the trip (experience, ability, medical training, safety training, musicians, wilderness cooks, etc.)

I realize that kayakers may be interested, and there will be kayakers on the trip, but rafters are needed to help the kayakers with gear and provide a safer more well rounded group. I am not looking for bus drivers solely and folks that fill this capacity will be treated well and helped greatly in many other ways.

Gear can easily be rented out there so if you row, but do not have the right boat or gear for the trip that will not be a problem. Expenses shared equally. This is a 21 day float starting March 11. No motors. Big water.

Kayakers that are special enough have a leg up, so feel free to contact, just rafters with experience get a plus, plus, plus. Folks I have boated with also get a plus.

Interested parties can email me with a river bio and we can see where things go from there. [email protected]

Yakrafter,

I wanted to express my interest in joining your trip, but with the trip being in March I can not commit.
I have been a raft guide for 13 years and have been lucky enough to run the Grand 26 times and would love to show people some of the hidden teasures. I would also like to take my kayak, so if anyone would want to share a raft/ rowing that would be ideal.
Again I can not commit, but wanted to at least get my name on the list.

Still Room

Hey,

I still have space in our group for the Grand. We are about 9 people - diverse, chill, reasonably experienced. A few have been down before.

I would still like to add a rower or two to the trip just for safety, backup, diversity and to make sure interested parties have the opportunity.

March 11th, 21 days, about $1000.

Give me a call, email, pm,...

Mike

Hi Yakrafter,

Have you tried over at the trip forum at gcpba.org, and the http://groups.yahoo.com/group/gcpba/messages listserv?

Those two sites represent about 2,000 people with interest and experience in the Grand.

Hope this helps.
