Idaho Road Tripin'

Post by Mark B. on Sat 21 Apr 2012, 4:36 am

Hey y'all,

My buddy and I are planning a little road trip of sorts to hit up some of the Idaho classics next week. Looking for a few more paddlers to make shuttling easier, split gas with, and because the more the merrier on a trip like this.

The prospective plan is to leave Salt Lake Monday evening and head to Boise. Spend Tuesday and Wednesday on the Payettes, Thursday driving towards Ashton via Stanley hitting the Salmon along the way. Friday fire up Lower Mesa Falls, Henry's Fork in the morning and maybe Bitch Creek or the Grey's in the afternoon. Head over to Grace on Saturday to catch the Black Canyon of the Bear release. The plan is still in flux, but that's the basic idea. If anyone wants to join up for all or part give me a holler.

Hi Mark, I was wondering if I could go on this road trip with you. I see that you live in Provo. Can I meet you at your place on Monday and head up to Idaho with you? I dont use a hardshell, just a packraft. I dont have a vehicle, but can help pay for gas, and I have a gopro camera for footage we can use to record the cool trip your going on. Let me know If I can go with you, and if so give me an address and time to meet up.

Hey Scott, I'm a little concerned about how a packraft would fair on these rivers; actually very concerned. Most of the rivers we're planning on should be running high, especially the payettes. I think it might be wise to sit this one out.

Sounds like a blast! I will be working sadly. Hopefully I will meet up with you next Saturday for the BCoB release.

Scott has a drysuit; he would have a blast on Main Payettes at current flows (8590). Scott, have you done bigwater IV in your packraft? Main Payette, Cabarton, Staircase could be a good sequence at current levels.
I saw a packraft video where a guy did Cataract at fairly high water, swam in the big drops, climbed back into his packraft and made it through Satans gut. Wish I could find that one again; I was impressed that it was possible to climb back in to a packraft in big water like that.
Maybe you should go camp on the Payette for awhile Scott, and run the Main or Staircase every day to dial in your bigwater packrafting :-)

Stay up by the Payettes, sounds great to me. I was planning to camp out in that area for a few months this summer when the weather is nice and warm. I'd love to run the Lochsa, Selway, the Boise, and what other rivers up there that dont require a permit. Ive been running the AF the last few days. Its flowing pretty decent right now.
