Ruby Horsethief this week?

Anyone know if I can run Ruby Horsethief this week with the government shutdown? It's just me and my little packraft.

Anyone want to join me? Anytime this week would be fine. Shuttle recommendations?

If you're packrafting just take a bike on the boat, then ride the Kokopelli back to the start. Westwater to Loma has some decent trail, and some dirt road. Figure 4 to 5 hours for the ride.

I would caution you from leaving your vehicle unattended at Loma overnight.... it's certainly more difficult for a bike shuttle, but I have always used the Colorado River State Park at Fruita as a launching site. It's nice, and it's secure.

I remember all the vandalism at Loma several years ago. Has it happened lately?

Not sure, I haven't gave any dirtbags the opportunity the last couple seasons.... there is still plenty of broken glass on the ground there which leads me to believe it still can be an issue....

Another vote for using Rimrock as both your shuttle and launch point. They are in Fruita just across from the state park. Very friendly and they always let us stay in their parking lot when we drive in the night before launch.

I'd like to run Ruby/ Horsethief this weekend. It's just me and my 16' cataraft, but I planned on putting in early Saturday morning. We could split the cost on the shuttle if you'd like. Or brave hitch hiking from West Water back to Loma... if possible. Let me know if you're interested, I'm always looking to get on the river with new people.
-Cheers
