Would you go?

Just a silly, random, discussion I had the other day with some friends. If a friend invited you on a Grand trip on one of those big commercial, motorized, trips, full of tourists, would you go?

We all agreed - Hell Yes! Especially if it was paid for.

Not my idea of an ideal trip, but if it was paid for I certainly wouldn't say no.

Nope, I would save my time and $ for a private trip with people who have a clue. Even a free trip has costs associated with.

Depends on how much ice they can fit on that baloney boat.

Free trip with all my work handled, camp set for me, meals ready for me, but potentially full of gapers who have never seen a river before?



Count me in if there's enough beer.

All expenses paid?

Wonder if you could kayak along side for the meaty parts of the canyon. Then I'd for sure go!

So let me get this straight...you don't have to set up camp, but there's still a question if you would go or not?

On our Grand trip last year, we ran into a trip at Matkat that had all the trappings of a commercial trip. Little attention payed at the time.
We ran into guides from the same company but different trip at Hav and they told us it was some fancy Hollywood producer who chartered the trip for him and his entourage.
So basically a private trip with only you and your buddies pampered by guides... uh... I'd sign up for that "commercial" trip all day long.
