I'd really like to see this run i've heard and read so much about. I've heard Ken say that 3 days is best to enjoy the trip. The May long weekend works best given my other commitments. I have a crew that I run with in the summer, but a secluded river in spring up north is beyond their commitment level to paddling. I hope this plan will work for some of you out there who'd like to try this run as well. I realize most will be unable to commit until the week before and the whole thing will be dependant on water levels, but my email is listed on my profile. Have a fun, safe spring everyone.

I was thinking 27 mile brook to Robinsonville bridge. I'll need to talk to some people who've done the run before to get an approximation of campsite locations assuming that nobody whose done the run before comes with us.

We camped the first night across from Oxford Brook, and the second night just before the canyon and the confluence with the SE Branch, both times right bank. Then we ran out to Robinsonville the third day.
The one time I've run from the 27 Mile Brook, we tented at the 10 Mile, right where the fish fence is, then we camped in the camp at the Forks, and took out at home by the bridge in Upsalquitch.
I'd be up for this trip, but I broke my ankle a few weeks ago, and think I will still be in cast for the long weekend in May. VERY JEALOUS!!! We had talked about it earlier in the year, putting it on our wish list for the year, but I don't think it will be possible now.
