Westwater this weekend

I have a permit to run Westwater this weekend. Launching Saturday. The other members of our group had to cancel due to illness and other factors.

I'm looking for at least one other raft to accompany me. Preferably someone who has experience on this section. I can provide required gear. I'll be running a 14' SB with one passenger.

Planning to spend the night on the river.

Mellow vibe preferred. I want to make a decision about this by tomorrow morning.

Feel free to email: [email protected]

Thanks!

Michael

We're also launching on Saturday with 2-3 boats. I'll send you an email.

I'd be interested in joining either of ya'lls trips. Let me know. I have a 13.5' raft and some group gear. I've been out twice this year so far...good times to be had down there.

Cheers,

Josh

edit: sent you an email with my contact info

You guys are brave. 45 mph winds on Saturday with 60% chance of rain/snow on Sunday. Gotta love spring in the desert.

Ouch. That forecast sure got a lot worse in the last 24 hours. There'll be at least one cancellation for Saturday!

Where are you seeing this forcast? I definitely see some precipitation but don't see anything saying 45mph winds.

Still...I might have to stay home and do other stuff even for 20mph winds and rain/snow.

Yeah, but how many people get to see it rain, then snow, then rain again sideways, in the desert?????

This is why I like to get checks from everybody's permit fee before I pay for the permit on shoulder season trips...

Better have the right gear if you're on the river this weekend!
