The sixteenth spot...

https://community.nrs.com/duct-tape/...own-the-grand/

I had a pretty magical summer of boating: Grand Canyon, Middle Fork and Rogue. I traveled with lots of strangers who subsequently became boating friends. Here is a write up for one of those trips. Enjoy

God I want to go back...
I was lucky enough to launch with a group of strangers this January, I can relate...
Keep writing man, your great at it!

Beautiful story! Maybe you restored a little faith for me after a disaster of a cancelled trip with others this summer.

Awesome read.
We have been down twice, first time just to Phantom as late adds to a local but until then unknown group, second time all the way down knowing only two friends who left at Phantom. The way a group melds together as the trip unfolds is magical.

Next year we get a small group trip with our nearest and dearest river friends. All time spent in that amazing place is so special and friendships made on those trips are long lasting.
