Upper Salmon River, April 28

This is especially for those people paddling the Moira River, April 27, with Bill Ness. When finishing the Moira some of us will camp locally as we may as well make the most of being local to both rivers. Others are welcome to come just for the day.
Considering the lack of snow in the bush this winter we shall make a call on whether we can, in fact, paddle this river this year as the date approaches.
Normally this is a class II and III river so we are looking for people who have some experience. You must have a whitewater boat (plus a bailer) and you must have either a full dry suit or wet suit. The organizers of this trip will reserve the right to exclude you if you turn up unprepared. Please bring throw ropes if you have them.
Come prepared to have a good time, socialize, and be supportive of other people's experience.

The main intention for this trip is 'tandem practice' for those of us intending to undertake back country trips up north this summer. Solo paddlers will be welcomed too, should there be space in the group.
