Launching June 9th, 2 boats-1 boatman with experience, never on the Green, and the other a novice. Looking to hire someone with guide experience to help make this a safe trip. PM me if interested.

You won't need a guide on Deso if you have a boater with experience and a river map. Ask the ranger what to scout and you guys should be fine. When you say experience, what do you mean?

A guide to run Deso? Whatever happened to adventure style river running? Even for an intermediate boater, this should be something to challenge oneself a little bit?

Pull over and scout when in doubt, wtf.

That's what I needed to hear. Took a Swiftwater rescue course this week and the instructors there were questioning me doing a trip there without anyone having done it before and having a novice boater.

You'll be fine. Also, hiring a guide makes you a not so private trip- not sure how much they care on deso, but generally speaking permitted rivers require cost sharing among the group, and noone can be making money.

You could invite someone to go who has experience. This is a good place for that. I mean not a guide just a fellow Buzzard.
