This is a really advanced Kayaking trip to the Upper Yough, MD and possibly Upper Gauley, WV. The common adventurers that will be furthest downstream on these rivers are looking for a low stress express trip down the river, hence this will not be a first timer UY trip, and previous runs will be needed.
Upper Yough on Saturday is the only definite plan… My crystal ball says that some in the group will be daytriping, others may look to continue paddling on Sunday & Monday… If there’s promise of natural flow in the greater UY area we may stay there and run things of similar difficulty, else relocate to the Gauley.
The Departure time indicated is the time we’ll be leaving Saturday Morning, return time is a rough guestimate.
