Rouge River Shuttle needed May 23, 2016

Hi all,

I am hoping to use this Rouge River permit my girlfriend picked for a quick kayak self-support down trip down the rouge. Our launch date is 5/24/2016.

Does anyone here have a trip that week and want to collaborate on shuttle? Or perhaps live in the area and what to drive a shuttle? I could offer $50 plus fuel of our single Tacoma.

Most of the companies in the area will not do single vehicle shuttles.

Thanks,


~ B

???? I have done lots of single vehicle shuttles. Besides it is permit season and they have other vehicles to move. Have you tried Affordable Shuttles, Whitewater Cowboys, Rogue Wilderness Adventures or god forbid, the Galice store?

I am guessing the $210 coastal shuttle cost is their hang up since all the passes are closed.

OP, you gotta pay to play... put a 1 in front of that $50 and you'll get more bites.

Eden Valley is open. Rouge Wilderness will do that route for $165. I guess I was spoiled by the lack of snow the last couple of years. We did trips over spring break and Bear Camp was open.

Bear camp road is opening today. That will bring the shuttle cost down significantly. Last time I heard of anyone getting a shuttle for less than 50 bucks was in the early 90's....

I've used affordable shuttles several times. $100. Usually only have one vehicle needing shuttled. Never had a problem with only having one rig. My rig was stolen one of the times. That's 20% of my shuttles on lower rogue have ended with a stolen vehicle lol.

willieboater,

Where did you read that Bear creek road was open for the 2016 season?

Thanks,
