Paddle the Deepest Canyon in North America!

We are looking for a safety kayaker and possibly a skilled oarsman for an expedition down the deepest canyon in North America. Check out Rio Piaxtla at:
Mexico: SierraRios upcoming guided kayak/raft trips


RIO PIAXTLA : Source-to-Sea through the Deepest Canyon in North America
108 miles, class III-IV, 8 days
September 17-24, 2011: rendezvous in Mazatlán. MORE INFO

On this kayak/raft expedition down Río Piaxtla, we plan to fly up to the rim, hike down into the deepest canyon in North America, and then paddle all the way to the Pacific Ocean. This is one of the last free-flowing rivers in Mexico's Sierra Madre Occidental and may be dammed soon, so enjoy it while you still can! Everyone is welcome: kayakers, rafters, and raft passengers. The trip is suitable for intermediate kayakers. Class V paddlers have an option of tackling the Puerta de Piaxtla section for the 3 days prior to meeting the group.

Yeah.... I read all your shit. I was hoping this wasn't a commercial post disguised as as a search for support boaters. My mistake.

Mountain Medic,

Actually we are looking for one or two safety kayakers, pending enough clients to warrant them. I don't know how many folks are going to sign up. Safety kayakers will probably pay only the cost of their shuttle and food. How much would that be? I'm not sure right now. The costs on the website are solid and certain if that's what you want. However, it might be less or more depending on how much you help out the group, your experience, etc. We'd need to discuss.

Here's a question for you. How much do you think it will cost for you to arrange your own shuttle/food for a trip like this? Ponder that and let me know. [Don't forget it's a 10+ hour drive for the shuttle and you'll have to find a driver or some other way to do it.] If the trip gets only 1 or 2 paying clients, we might not be able to pay for a safety kayaker. In any event, if you're really psyched to do the trip and are competent enough and agree to help completely, the most you would pay is your shuttle and food, and maybe not even that. So you let me know if you're still interested (and anyone else reading this).

Rocky

Move this to commercial posts, after you buy a commercial membership.
