kayak/canoe - colorado river, meander canyon - April 28, 2016

April 28-May 3. Potash to Spanish Bottom. Jet boat shuttle by Tex's Riverways. Group size 6-8 people. Logistics: Drive down to Moab on Thursday, April 28. Camp/Motel Thursday night. Be at Tex's Riverways office in Moab at 7:30am. They will shuttle people/boats/gear to the Potash put-in. Launch at about 9:00am. Jet boat pick-up at Spanish Bottom on Tuesday morning, May 3 at 11:00am. Back to Moab in the afternoon. The trip: Flat water paddling with one class I (?) rapid (The Slide). 10-15 miles per day of paddling with the opportunity for side hikes & some ruins to explore. Spring weather can be a crapshoot.....glorious & warm or windy, wet, and cold....or most likely a little of each? This is a canoe/touring kayak trip. Duckies are not suitable. You must have multi-day paddling experience and be able to carry your own gear on your boat (cooking, food, shelter, water, etc.). How we handle human waste will be determined by the number & types of boats we bring on the trip. A groover or wag bag system will be used. One nice thing about this trip is that if the weather turns nasty, we can layover/hunker down and the shuttle will pick us up on Tuesday wherever we end up. Costs: This is a pricey trip, so that's why I need to gauge interest before I make a shuttle reservation. Shuttle - $125/person + $25-$35/boat, NPS permit - $30 + $20/person. Tex's Riverways has a 30 day cancellation policy, but there is no refund of the NPS fees once I get the permit. There will be a $100 non-refundable deposit for this trip. Please email me asap if you are interested in this trip, or have questions. I would like to make a shuttle reservation the first week of February once I have the right group of folks & firm commitments. Please email me. Do Not contact me by phone. Thanks. THIS TRIP IS FULL.
