Books like Tom Martin’s river map and hiking guidebooks provide great information for Grand Canyon trips, but lack knowledge about how to prepare for and execute a self-support kayak trip, and don’t have any kayak-specific beta on rapids, camping, or hikes. This guidebook aims to answer questions about temperatures and daylight at different times of year, how to negotiate the Park Service regulations as a kayaker (i.e. “How to Build Your Own Groover”), shuttle logistics, what hikes work best on a self-support schedule, and more, as well as providing basic advice for undertaking long, self-supported river trips.
I’ll be posting articles that will be in the book on this website over the course of the next year. With any luck, the book will be released during late 2018.
