River trips

I've only done a BB river trip one time.  We put in below Santa Elena and paddled into it.  It was pretty freakin cool.   Smugglers cave is an awesome sight.  I'd love to do another trip but its a huge burden to take a canoe out there all the way from Houston AND arrange a shuttle.  

My dream trip is to canoe all the way from Lajitas to Rio Grande Village or further.

Shanea and Viper

I'll post a message here before my trip to Big Bend in September.  My buddy and I  are taking the canoe this year for sure.  A canoe caravan through the canyons sounds like a great trip.  I'm no guide but I love the spirit of adventure and discovery.  If you either of you guys head out there for a long river trip and don;t mind company then let me know.  Two or more groups makes for better safety and easier to shuttle.  Heres a shot from Feb 2001:





We're very serious about taking a long 7-10 day trip.  We dont need no freakin guide either.  Just some good maps, a GPS and our backcountry gear along with an adventurous spirit.

Have access to a canoe and adequate camping gear?  Let's go!
