More on River Permits

Hi Rafting Families,

Yes the clock it ticking in all of our submissions for river permits.  I'll be posting links when I have time. Good news for those of us who submit (and cross our fingers) for Yampa and Lodore permits.  You can now do this online (which I'll bet makes Kelly's life easier too!).  Here is the link for the webpage.  As most of you know, you can only apply to either the Yampa or Lodore Canyon, not both.  The Yampa is the more difficult of the two in snagging a permit as it's season is shorter.  Lodore flows longer because it's fed by Flaming Gorge reservoir.  Both are great floats and they are amazing different canyons.  I suggest both. 

More later, I just wanted to get this link up for my readers.  Good luck in getting your permit.  Ours are submitting and we are hoping for the best.

Let's not forget to submit for River Permits

Hello Rafting Families,

It's that time of year where it's pretty easy to miss various deadlines for river permits.  Go here to find some helpful links. We will be trying hard for the Rouge River this year, as well as the Middle Fork of the Salmon, Selway and of course Lodore Canyon.

Good luck fellow rafters!

It's been a while, but I thought I'd update...

Well we never did follow though on pulling out kiddos out of school so we could do Lodore again.  But we did take them to Tulum (south of Cancun) before Christmas and had an absolute blast.  White beaches, great food, Zip Lines, rafting though Conotes (fresh water cavern and caves) and down time with the family was just what we needed.  I'll post some pics soon.

Also, don't forget it's time to submit our applications for river permits.  I'll post more on that soon as well.

Happy New Year from Bill Strong of Denver and his Rafting Family!
