Grand Canyon Safety Question...
So, I have a Grand Canyon trip for March. I've only had the permit for 2 weeks and am having a helluva time getting boatmen to commit. I had potentially 9 boats invited and for whatever reason it looks as if none of my buddies can make it....Economy, jobs, timing, and lots of other reasons.
I'm still waiting to hear back from a couple of boatmen and a kayaker or 2. However, I have 2 chicas that want to go. My thought is to go anyway. 1 boat with 2 hot chicas and myself (ugly dude). Am I crazy to run the Grand as 1 boat? I figure I can scout the big ones and wait for another trip to show and run it with them. Up early and off early... Surely, people would be accomodating to my situation, don't you think?
We would be so efficient on the Grand we would be able to do a shit load of cool stuff that a herd of turtles could not. So, on that side it would be amazing! However, I'm concerned about safety and such. Yes, I could bring strangers... However, if they are shit bags we are stuck with them. Where as, if we hooked up with various others to run the biggies... We aren't stuck with any shit bags.
This will be my 3rd trip. So, I am some what experienced but I don't want to be stupid. Any thoughts?
By the way... No mini-me for me with the current ituation. It is unfortunate b/c I set the mini up for a Grand trip.
