Looking to gain some more white water experience with our 14' self bailer round boat (Alaskan Outfitter brand) usually set up for rowing.
We have done the upper Gulkana several times including the canyon and have spent a decent amount of time rowing on the upper Chena (can require some quick maneuvering).
What other road to road areas should be on our list for the summer that have some increasingly splashy fun?
We're in Fairbanks, so the interior is preferred, although we have friends with a cabin up the glen which makes the Matanuska appealing. Wondering if Lions Head is within our capabilities and our raft's? Sounds like a great time! I've searched the forum quite a bit, but would love some more information like do you wear drysuits? and would welcome PM's from people that run it and might be willing to offer more advice or work up a group trip, etc. I know NOVA is there and perhaps we could ride with them once or follow them, but I haven't looked into their rates and don't know anybody there to talk about options.
Overnights and fishing rivers are great too, but I don't know where to go to get some more whitewater experience. Nenana?
Thanks for the advice.
