I've taken many people with little to no river experience and their own craft on that trip with no problems (duckies and mini me's). I would way rather be on the Chama than the Moab Daily.
Yes, me too. But my GF has it stuck in her head that this is what she wants to do.

Chama launch swap in mid-late August for a July 19/20 launch date?

Anyone have a mid-late August Chama launch date who is willing to trade for a July 19/20 launch date? Let me know!

Thanks.

Try the high water argument. The daily is likely gonna be very high in early June, whereas the Chama will likely still be manageable with the dam controlled flows. Scardycats will be way better off on the Chama under those conditions.

I picked up a Chama May 17th/18th permit and would like to trade for another weekend date. Anyone else looking to swap?
