Raft Grand Canyon, 22 to 28 August 2004

Introduction

At 6:00 pm on the 21st of August, a Saturday, we gathered at La Quinta Inn in Flagstaff, Arizona for our Canyoneers orientation.  At least most of us did.  At that moment, Emily and I were zooming down Interstate 5 in California, somewhere around Kettleman City, 203 miles from Berkeley and 555 miles from Flagstaff.  Had we opted to drive the remaining distance at 55 mph we would have arrived at the hotel at 4 am, only 1 hour before the morning orientation.  Instead we drove faster, much faster, so that by 1:30 am we had arrived, picked up and packed our dry bags/ammo cans, showered, and tucked into bed.  That night I had strange dreams about mud...

From the left we have: Casey and his lovely wife Emily from Berkeley, California; Taylor...
and her big brother Spencer and father Ned with Jill from Manhattan, New York; 
Dana and her husband Keith from Vacaville, California with his dad Alan from Ann Arbor, Michigan; 
the Honorable Judge Ron (photo circa 1965?) and his wife Carol from Seattle, Washington with daughter Kaylin from Olympia, Washington; 
Bob and Karen from San Carlos, Mexico; Jim from Sedona, Arizona... 
with Pam from Dallas, Texas; Andrew and Maria from Bellflower, California; 
Stacy and Pablo (I miss "Clark" from version 1 of this site) from Flagstaff, Arizona; Captain Ken... 
John without Elton John sunglasses, and storyteller Jamie, the crew; and Canyonman with Mudgirl.
