Grande Ronde Rumble

Taking 4 boats 101 miles from Elgin to Heller Bar on the GR in one day. Hoping to make it in about 10 hours. Wish us luck!

High water GR

Are you planning on doing the entire river 100 miles in 10 hrs? I noticed this morning that she's cranking at like 15,000 so it should be a magic carpet ride for sure. Never launched from Elgin just Minam, but good luck!

Yes sir all in one day. There's a pretty good little rapid at low water on the Elgin to Rondowa stretch called Andys that will probably be pretty interesting but should be freeway other than that!

Winds at 6 from the SW tomorrow.

OK.......

Suggest to the Shuttle Crew that they wait and stop at the Wallowa Milkshake place. That'll slow 'em down.

This could devolve into what do you use for running lights, thread.

Might stop for a bite I don't think we will have any problems making it, with time to spare. Boats wet at 0700.

Boats in the water that early you should be able to make it pretty easy. I did it in two days at 10,500 three years ago and we were not the fastest to get on the water. I have also gone down at 18,000 look out for trees if it gets that big.
The Narrows should be a really good ride.

I don't want to jinx anyone but this is exactly the type of float the TV Reality people are hunting for.

All the Best.


Post some pics later.
