I had been enjoying the DR a lot last season, and after picking up "A paddler's Guide to the DR" I have the bug to do an overnight to a two night/ three day trip. As a few people that paddle with me started paddling last year for the first time, I do not really want to pick a section of river too technical, possibly Class I all the way or easy portages.
I am very familiar with Upper Black Eddy to Bull Island and would love to find a comparable section of river for the trip length mentioned.
I am hoping for some input on the trip from people that know the right stretch, possible camping advice, any info that you are willing to share. I am trying to gather as much info as I can now so I can start my season of on a great paddle.
Thanks in advance

wouldn't mind the idea of a few more people joining in if desired

I'd look into "Canoeing the Delaware," and "Paddling the Delaware: A River User's Guide." The latter is available from e-parks.com.

has been my faithful companion from day one, it has proven to be one of the most useful pieces of gear in the boat. Once I have an idea of the sections we want to run I plan on doing each on a day at a time basis, getting familiar with them before hand, I was just looking for more "personal" input on the river to add to the books info and my own knowledge. You can never be over-informed imo.
