Planning ahead, I have booked the entire 11-person trip for a 5-night descent of the Selway River, a 47-mile outing that starts in southeastern Montana. We will travel with Hughes Expeditions, who have impressed us with the quality of their service on the Middle Fork of the Salmon, for example on our 2016 trip . Per Hughes' writeup, "The Selway River Trip is a premier mountain wilderness, whitewater, camping, and fly fishing trip that flows through beautiful forested canyons.  It is easy to consider the Selway to be the ultimate rafting trip." It is a rugged trip, with plenty of white water. Many more details can be found at https://www.hughesriver.com/rivers/selway-river/. This trip is quite difficult to get on; at this point, Hughes is fully booked for their 2020 and 2021 departures, and almost entirely booked for 2022. We will leave Missoula, Montana, on the morning of 14 July 2021, and return there on the evening of the 19th. One should plan to overnight in Missoula the nights before and after the trip.

The river trip will cost just about $3,000 per person. I've already paid a $750 deposit per person; the rest will be due directly to Hughes in May 2021. To reserve a spot on this trip, I would appreciate participants buying out their share ($750) of the deposit.

When the time comes closer we can figure out driving/lodging, etc. The important thing is to reserve your spot now, even though the trip is still some time away.

Let me (Bill) know if you are interested.
