I'm going to do the Upper Missouri River. I would like to go some time between may 15 to June 15, depending who might like to go.
The trip would start at FT Benton Montana ending at the James Kipp camp ground a 149 miles trip. Canoes or Kayaks welcome. Hope to see you there. Here is a link

Thanks for the interest in my trip. I have most of the info, but wood like some info on when high water is there seems to be conflict on this point. Is my timing rite? Between May 15 to June 15. These times are not written in stone. Is your group doing this run this spring? I'm looking for someone to transport me back to car. If you no someone who can help contact me at

Depends every years on the snow we get. this year a good snow amount so it could be high when you are there...thus a fast trip. Dont go too fast!!!

All done except the shuttle. Having problem finding someone to split shuttle fees with 300 to 550 dollars,and that's just to drive my car to pickup point and me driving them back,is out of my league. Going any way even if I have to hitch hike back to my car.
i'll keep ya posted|

If i hear anyone else doing that this spring, I'll let you know maybe you two can split the shuttle. The hitch hike is not an option.....there may not be a car down that long dirt road for hours and Im sure they wont pick you up etc.

Putting together a paddle from Casper, WY to New Orleans, LA, but if the Platte River/Missouri route is too shallow in Central NE may switch to Yellowstone/Missouri. Probably in aluminum 18 footer so may be too slow to keep up with you. Keep in touch. Bounce an independent e-mail off me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
