Looking for fellow Bozeman/Gardiner/SW MT boaters

My boyfriend and I live in Bozeman are 21-22 year olds and have a raft and rig. We like to have fun and have experience on III - some V rapids. We don't mind traveling to go raft a new river, no matter the distance. We plan on going on the Owyhee for MSU spring break and are open to meeting new boaters if anyone wants to go, or later this summer. Neither of us have done the Gallatin, Yankee Jim, or Bear Trap and would prefer going with some people who have. Send me a message if you would like to meet and go boating with us!

Welcome to Bozeman. When things get a little warmer I'll be happy to run any of those with you.

Welcome. I will vouch for Glenn being a solid boater. If you make it north to missoula drop me a line. I guide during the summer and would be happy to give you flow updates or go run the lochsa with some shuttle friends.

When is MSU spring break? I have been invited on an April lower Owyhee. Sounds like a few threes and maybe a couple three pluses. Water level should be moderate. No 20K cfs runoff this year.
Might be room for more.

MSU spring break is March 12-16. My boyfriend has previously done the lower Owyhee and it seems that Nuisance rapid is the only rapid that needs any sort of technical skill. It squeezes a bit in that area but nothing intimidating. We're taking a first time boater and don't want to scare her socks off

Hey Katweena, this is Brad from the B school. I developed a kayaking habit last summer and am looking forward to getting out this summer. I haven't paddled around here yet, so I'm game to go exploring with ya'll once the time comes.

Hey Montana Boaters! Our spring break plans have changed and we're going on West Water instead. This is awesome, except that there isn't a shop that rents fire pans in the area. If anyone has one lying around that they would like to sell, or rent to very trustworthy and responsible people, we are in DESPERATE need. Please message me if you are willing to help us out, we would be fine paying a rental fee, or bartering for the future.

Some other things that we would like to buy or rent, that are not as important as the fire pan, but would still help out include: dry tops?, splash gear, any neoprene, booties, gloves, wet suits, webbing, a table, lanterns, sleeping pads, and ammo cans.

Thanks for looking!!
