    Default Rafting instruction?

    I would really like to get some rafting experience before a Chitna River expedition I'm going on in early August. Of the 4 guys going, we have ZERO experience, and although the Chitna is only class I-II, we're going to be piloting a 18' cataraft loaded with 4 guys and a lot of gear.

    Is there anyone out there that wants to teach two guys the basics of piloting a large raft? Maybe a day or 1/2 day on the upper Kenai?

    We are happy to either pay for a rental from AKR&K, or pay you to use your raft, plus we're willing to pay for your gas, lunch, etc.

    A certified instructor is a plus, but anyone with a lot of experience would be fine.

    Dates we're available are as follows: Sundays are best (7/27 and 8/3), but I'm off on Mondays and Tuesdays as well 7/29, 7/30 and 8/4, 8/5.

    Thanks so much!!!

    Go buy "The Complete Whitewater Rafter" by Jeff Bennett. You can get it cheap online and it is a great book.
