One last try...

Need safety boater/camp partner this week/end-

I landed a Grand permit for next spring, and need to put together a gear boat and system. I have this week and next to fire up a Salmon or Hell’s trip. I’ll carry your beer and gear, pay the shuttle, even drive over there. I just need a second boater to make this go (safely).

Jump in and help a brother out! I’m leaving Wednesday or Thursday.

Hopefully you find a kayaker to mooch off of you. That said, you could go run something like the deschutes or something else flat and roadside if you are worried about running solo. You could also run a couple short trips. That way if you wanted to change something on your rig after a couple days you could change it, then go back out.

What exactly do you mean..."landed a grand Canyon launch next spring?" When next spring? What are you looking for? A (One) safety kayaker? Putting a gear boat together?
Have you been down Grand Canyon? I guided professional 20+ years, including GC & 4 other states. Please email me at [email protected], if I can be of assistance on your Grand Trip!

Jungle Jane - he was looking for a partner for a multi day trip a couple of weeks ago, was hoping to dial in his gear for a Spring GC before everything up this way freezes up.

As a follow-up, rowed Hell's Cy, had a blast with the original guy who was supposed to go after he came free last second. Great weather, super fishing, and a much-needed opportunity to make mistakes, figure them out, and fall in love with rowing (always paddle rafted, kayaked).

Now I need a March trip as a final tune-up prior to my Grand trip. Owyhee? Rogue? Hell's again?

Have a few months to ski and sort out those details. Thanks for pitching in!
