ideas for Raft Trip for this weekend class 3sh - no permit

6 or 7 of us are looking to do an overnight raft trip this weekend. It would be great to do a Westwater but we slacked on the permit. Any ideas for similar type class 3sh rivers that we could do this weekend.

Thanks,
Patrick

There are several stretches on the Arkansas that make for good overnighters - the shuttle's pretty easy and, although I've never done it, it sounds like it could be fun (and less crowded below Brown's).

If you launch on Brown's after about 3 pm you'll have the river to yourself. Better yet, launch at Wilderness Aware ($3 fee) and start with the Milk Run. Float down and find a campsite below Ruby Mt. Campground on public land. Continue to Stone Bridge the next am. If you get on the river before about 8:30 or so, you may be able to stay ahead of the train of rubber buses...

Good luck,

--Andy
