Middle Fork of the Samon Trip June 2016 (General Discussion)

by Shademaster @, Sunday, August 23, 2015, 07:38 (609 days ago)

After our trip yesterday, Ian, Ken, and I had dinner at Aubrey's, during which time we had the idea of a club trip on the Middle Fork of the Salmon in June 2016.

I have started contacting outfitters and will post updates as I get them. First contact was Wilderness River Outfitters. They offer charter trips with most things included for $1400 for a 6 day 5 night trip! They got great reviews on trip advisor, but there are a lot to choose from.

We will need 12 people, which shouldn't be a problem.

So, who is interested?

I just emailed WROs and the June trip is still open. Interestingly, Jason Darby went with WROs a few years ago. I tried but failed to reach Jason for his take on them.

WRO is a family owned and operated business since 1972!

These guys are offering a 6 day trip for $1400 with FREE kayak usage. That's 300 to 400 less than others charge for a 5 day trip.

This is an awesome opportunity, but we need to move on it, come on guys and gals, let's make this happen!!

Thanks,

OK, here's the deal:

Trip length 6 days.
Launch Date June 16, 2016
Kayakers with club membership cost $1400 and includes use of kayak.
Rafters price $1550.

Need 25% deposit from 15 people to lock in the trip.
Can take 23 or 24.

Jason Darby used WRO and said they were excellent! They even had a Riot team kayaker in the water with them to help with playboat moves.

Camped near play features a lot of days.

WRO will hold the trip for us for 1 or 2 weeks, then it's at risk.

I'll ask WRO the best way to send deposits in...but now we need to know who is ready to confirm and see if we have 15 people.

Thanks,
Tom Lessick
