Need people for Crystal Gorge ASAP

As seen in a trip planner post (please keep this one in boater's forum admin then you can delete it after tomorrow), Tom and I got hosed on the other half of our crew to boat the CG tomorrow. Tom drove all the way up here and now we are close to being proper f&%[email protected] Anyone want to help some brothers out?

Maybe all those gnarrow race shiat talkers. Evan, since you get up so early to run the gnar you should be able to get here by 8am.

Seriously Tom is leaving for the Box on Thurs and can't wait another day. He is crying on my shoulder now. His tears are now making me cry, it is like he is a little onion. For the love of the river gods someone join our crew. It would be cool if you have done the run.

If it needs to come down to bribery I will give you a six pack of shlitz and a turkey leg. Tom said he will throw in a BJ

If yer running the upper you don't need a guide. Very straightforward. The inner is another story, but then again, if you need a guide, you might want to rethink going in there in the first place.

dont think hes saying he needs a guide, just that they dont wanna go in there with just two people who have never done it, and if youve done the run well that would just make things easier. I wouldnt want to go in there with crew of 2 either, never having done the run either!

hope it works out kevin, im jealous, have fun in there

Fred's video says a lot. There's only two main drops on the upper and both are pretty easily noticed on the way there. The inner gorge is also pretty obvious--you'll pull over to scout a manky drop after Pine Tree (Pine Tree is the big one on the upper) and you'll see the wall rise out of the bowels of the earth marking the entrance to the inner. If you plan on walking, portage the inner on the left before the logs (up the short steep hill then through the tunnel) then put back in below Millers.
