Whitewater Rafting

  • Jul 6, 2013 · 7:00 AM

I was thinking sometime this month, as it's the best time to go. The trip starts out of Hope, so it would probably beneficial if we got some people to carpool. Here's the site:

Planning on doing the $150 trip.

I have truck that can fit 3 other people comfortably.

    If someone can give me a ride to and from Anchorage can you text or call me at[masked]-0661. So there is still room? I call the number posted and say I'm with the Michael group? What River is it? Did you decide on the $100 or $150 trip? Thanks!

      yes call them and say you are with "Michael Ryan" group, we are going on the $150 trip, but they said you can do the $100 trip, you would just get off sooner then us. That also means if you got a ride with someone whose doing the 3 canyon trip, you would have to wait an extra 1-1.5 hours till they return. You can get a ride with me if you like.

      When I booked yesterday, I actually took the last spot for that morning trip and on our raft. I think it maxed out at 6? I tried asking if we can split rafts but she said I took the last spot for the entire 9am. You can try calling again to double check.

    So I just called them, call[masked] to pay for your spot. Tell them you are with "Michael Ryan" aka me. and you are doing the July 6th trip at 9am.

      The swim isn't bad if you are comfortable with water. You have a preserver on and it's designed to test you and give you confidence in the gear.

      June 27, 2013

    • Roger

      It's pretty damn cold though.... Don't kid yourself! And another tip is don't go into that eddy on the upriver side because that will force you to swim against the current...

    I just paid my deposit.

      Take the Seward highway past Girdwood/Portage and then some. :) turn off is on right side. Can't miss it. Large parking area just before bridge and turn off

      June 20, 2013

    I would like to still do this trip. I just arrived in Anchorage. Just let me know what date so I can plan accordingly and make my payment. Also, would I be able to ride with someone?

    June 14, 2013

      Me neither, go big or go home :), Also I have one spot left in my truck if anyone needs a ride.

      I was knocked out of the boat twice last time I went, but definitely a good time.

      Also if enough people sign up as a group a group discount can be given.

      June 18, 2013

    So I just called them today, basically what we have to do is setup a group under my name, and then anyone who is going can call and say I'm with "such and such" on "such and such" date. Simple enough right.

    The 6th works for me.

    Need everyone to confirm whether the date/time/price is acceptable, I'm going to call them end of this week and give them an approximate number of people signing up.

    Actually the only day I can for sure do this is the 6th

    June 10, 2013

    So I think the unofficial tally so far is two vote for the 29th and two votes for the 6th

    You guys can call them ahead and tell them that you have a group that will be paying separately. Also, I believe you can have everyone go on the same raft even if some people pay for the first half of the trip and some pay for the both halves. They have a drop off point I believe. You can call them and ask them about this, but I believe this is what we did last year.

    June 6, 2013

      Yeah I will call them next week, wanted to wait and see what everyone was thinking

    I was wrong on the times, $100 is 3 hours and is only class 4 rapids, $150 is 4.5 hours and is class 4 and 5 rapids. My vote is $150 ride

    June 6, 2013

  • Chuck T.

    Either date works for me. Both are my days off, but I sometimes have to work them so I need to let supervisor know I have plans that day sooner rather than later. I would like to do $150 6 hours trip, but will do whatever the group wants, Chuck

    Thanks for taking over Michael. I'm just going to throw this out there so that you know what your getting into. The problem with these type of events is they require money up front so that the rafting company can schedule the trip. Obviously the rafting company would prefer one person to call and say "Party of 10 on June 29th and here's my credit card number". Which isn't going to happen unless your comfortable spotting money to people that may not show. Last year we did things like fishing charters but couldn't post them here because because no one would take the payment risk, so meetup people just did them without posting and with people they were confident wouldn't skip out. Maybe you already have a solution for this, but I would bet its going to be somewhat of a problem.

      I'll figure something out, I guess for now we have to figure out how many people really want to go and when. Not just people who are like "oh thats a nice thought, I suppose I'll go" I use to run a sportbike group in San Diego, and usually found a solution for stuff like this

    I'd be very interested. I would need to know day and cost. I'm off weekends and on Monday's.

      June 29th, or July 6th, need to find out what day would be better for most people

    I would be interested but I do not arrive in anchorage until 6/17. Let me know when you have a date.

    So I just posted the date for the 29th, I can also do the 6th if an overwhelming majority would rather do it on that date. AS Jeremy mentioned, we have to figure out the logistics, but for now lets find out how many people actually want to go for sure.

    Hey guys, looks I have to take off for work for the next few months and won't be back until August. Just learned of this today so sorry for starting a meetup and taking off! But if someone could take this over, that would be great. June/July are the best times to do this!

    June 5, 2013

      Sounds good man. I appreciate it!

    I'd be out the weekend of the 29th, I go to Katmai that Friday. If that's best for all else, I'd have no hard feelings though.

    If anyone is interested, I was literally researching where to do this last week. I was thinking of doing it June 29 (Saturday).

    The price is either $100 for a 2 canyon trip ( About 4 hours) or $150 for a three canyon trip (About 6 hours).

    Let me know if that works for any of you and maybe we could all coordinate

    June 5, 2013

    I think I'd be up for it. My schedules getting tight here in my last month but if it happens in the next weekend or two, I could prob go.

    June 5, 2013

  • Chuck T.

    I would like to do it. Depending on work schedule. I tried to do it last year with another group; but the water was too high. So I didn't have any luck either. Looking forward to doing it.
