Looking for rafting families to hook up with

Hi everyone!

This year is going to be my wife an my first year rafting. We have been on several guided day trips and have decided to take it up ourselves. We are looking for other local rafters to meet, and boat with. Hopefully someone who wouldn't mind running out first few day trips with us and teaching us whatever we need to know. We have a 6 year old son who will be joining in the fun as soon as we get a couple of trips under out belts, and would love to get to boat with other families with kids so my son can make some new friends as well. We'd like to start running the Main Payette here in the next month or so, and the Cabarton when it is flowing.

Any help or guidance is appreciated!

Do you have a raft yet?

Hello. Do you have a raft and associated gear?

I have a Deso Permit and none of my friends can make it. Launch on May 30 and take out early June 4th. I don't have any kids... Yet or in this country that I know of.

Hey thanks for the invite Mountainman, I'm excited to do multi day trips in the future, but I'm not so sure that a multi day trip 7 hours away from home is the best idea when I've never rowed a day trip on my own. Hope you can find some people to go with you!

Thanks again!

Thanks for the invite Julie! I appreciate it!

Still open to meeting other day boaters in the area who wouldn't mind adding another to the group.

Thanks everyone!
