Need a host for day trip

Looking for a private guide interested in taking 3 of us out in Vermont for a day rafting trip. All of us have been boating in class III/IV rapids. Preferably on 5/12 (Saturday). We were hoping to do the west river but no companies are running that particular weekend. All 3 of us are mature, medical professionals in the local area. Would be willing to pay 75 per person. Thank you.

1) What you are asking is illegal and a felony for anyone who provides outfitting services without a license. Better to ask for someone willing to take some fun people down the river for a shared cost trip. Its not illegal to give them beers pay for gas, broken equipment, etc.

2) Most people on this site are out west, good luck.

Boatertalk.com is more east coast focused, if you choose to go with option 1.

In the days before I had gear I had pretty good luck showing up at the put in with a PFD in 1 hand and a case of beer in the other. Now that I have gear I have a fondness for those that do the same.
Alternatively, I think the best thing ever was a guy on the side of the road with a sign that said "Will run shuttle for rafting". That was too good to pass without stopping.


Cheers,
Dave
