He made some very valid points in his furthering comments.

On the other hand........
If you have a group of paddlers who have a "little" experience, and motivation; the trip you're planning should be no real problem, barring unforseen circumstanes, beyond your control.

I did over 50 (4 day trips)of 61 miles (Cedar Grove to Logyard) on the Current river, with groups of 95% rookie paddlers who were in their teens. Some were girl's groups; who bitched "much less" than the boys.
They also bitched less on 3 & 4 day backpacking outings.
We never put on the river before noon on the 1st day, and never took off the river after dark on the 4th day.
We did these trips year round. We never cancelled one because of weather.
One kid was evactuated in all of those trips; he was faking!

P.S. Motivation & a good plan can go a long way towards overcoming some lack of experience & the amount of daylight for paddling.

Good luck to ya!

BOB
