We have 3 people (or 4, if the missus agrees) ready to go for a trip from Allanwater Bridge, up the Allanwater River, and back down to the road to Armstrong. We're hoping to make it 4 or 6 people. It's currently booked for the last week of July and the first week of August. Most of us are coming from the GTA, so that eats the weekends on either side of it to get there and back. There's some flexibility with dates but not a whole heap of it. The one big expense question is whether or not we need aircraft to ferry us to Allanwater Bridge from Armstrong, which will depend on the availability of trains (and pilots) at the time.

If we can find someone/some people with whitewater experience (I personally have some class II technical experience but not a whole lot of it, the rest of us do not, and I have no formal "training"), great, but if not, there's portages around almost everything in the area, as the route options we've mapped out are all well traveled.

We're a few experienced wilderness travelers and navigators but with admittedly few whitewater stripes. We have a type 1 (read: insulin-dependent) diabetic, one anaphylactic allergy to macadamia nuts, and I myself am Red Cross wilderness first aid trained. This trip is meant to push our limits.

Of course, everything is still rather nebulous right now given the pandemic, but we're confident we can do the trip. The macro logistics have been worked out. I'm pretty confident we can make it 4 people, but I'd like to make it six.

PM me if this strikes you and I can send more details.

edit: I posted asking for thoughts on the trip and route here, before the end of 2019.

If you ate today, thank a farmer.
