Too late, I already voted!

...But I read that in the voters pamphlet and voted for him.

Cool to see an actual politician come out against damaging rivers. "Sustainable" is a term I hear floated mostly about small hydro.

Pleasant surprise, hope he wins.

I actually got some summer vacation next year at the beginning of June.
What are some suggestions of multiday rivers within 10 or 12 hours of Seattle? I'm looking for class 3/4 or easier.
I've done the Rogue and Hell's Canyon a couple times each, so I'm looking for something new that doesn't require a permit, is easy to get cancelled permits on, or a trip that I could possibly add on to!
Thanks in advance!

I read recently that you can do multiday trips on the Klamath river - it's almost all roadside, but apparently pretty remote and the road isn't right on top of the river.
http://www.americanwhitewater.org/content/River/state-summary/state/CA/

I don't really know much about it beyond that, but it was mentioned on another forum as a good multiday non permitted river option.

It's not multiday, but given you've mentioned June, if you have not spent some time at the Lochsa you really should try to make that happen. Amazing whitewater, easy to snag shuttles (in general), and lots of people out there.

Chit Chat : kayaks on a hitch??? Author: MN Mike

Van question:

The adventure van we're looking at (95 chevy G20) is of the super-tall variety with a fiber-glass top, so putting boats up there is going to require some engineering up front and regular bouts of climbing and heavy lifting -- workable, but not ideal. I've seen rigs with racks that set kayaks vertically in the rear on a trailer hitch which seems like the way to go, but I'm not finding a simple "plug and play" hitch that looks like it would do the job. Anybody have some wisdom to share on the issue as far as what to buy and how to customize?

The van has a 2x2 hitch and a big steel plate behind the bumper (looked solid when I poked my head underneath in the evening's dark and drizzle), so there are solid attachment points. I'm curious to hear what others have done.

I asked this question on Boatertalk a few years ago and got some good responses (can't seem to get the search function to work). The issue with boats stacked vertically on a rack is that they will bounce side to side which will put a lot of strain on the trailer hitch.

My solution has been to stack boats vertically on a hitch rack and then also tie them to the back of the vehicle. I bolted in anchor points on the vehicle as well as a horizontal bar.

Here's the hitch rack I use: http://www.harborfreight.com/500-lb-capacity-deluxe-cargo-carrier-66983.html

The Grande Ronde is a nice run. The upper section, starting on the Wallowa River down to Troy is beautiful with nice camping but mostly class 2 with a couple easier 3s. June can be high water though, so there can still be some nice waves. You can also continue all the down to Heller Bar on the Snake river for a longer trip (~80 miles?). The lower section has more private property so I'd talk to someone who's been on it for tips about camping. Also in the lower section, near the end of the run is a section of 3-4 called the Narrows.

I haven't been on the Owyhee, but I hear both the upper (4/5) seciton and lower (2/3) are very nice, but often is too low by June. But you could keep the Owyhee as your top choice and if there's some rain to bring it up, go do that and use the Grande Ronde as your backup plan.

If you liked Hells Canyon, a very similar run is The Lower Salmon is a great no-permit 3/4 run (BUT) in June it is usually high water... meaning the Slide Rapids (about 5 miles up from Snake Confluence) will be huge and likely to flip any and all boats. This time of year most people take out at an alternate takeout above the Slide for a shorter trip.
