    This is the correct spot for the finish right? I’m just second guessing it because on Dave’s blog is says the Lake Inez campground north of Seeley Lake, which I guess this is, but I would have written north of Lake Inez, so I wanted to make sure there isn’t another one.

    Does Derek need snowshoes? If so, drive up to Seattle from Portland before heading east and I can lend him a pair.

    Dan, that’s where we’re planning to finish. Unless we end up here first:

    Doug, thanks for the offer. I think Chase is hooking me up with a pair of snowshoes.

    looks like the S Fork is on a big time rise, little cooler weather on its way so may tame it a bit

    also here’s my SPOT page

    I’m starting to wonder whether I’ll be packrafting or playing it safe and staying in my feet.

    Are you guys camping at the start Friday night or staying in Choteau?

    May be tough to find a room for Memorial Day weekend in Choteau.  Thad and I are camping with our families as near to the start as we can (doubtful there will be any spots in the campground available).  That way we don’t need to leave a vehicle at the start.

    Good luck to all and make good decisions! I’ll be hanging pretty close to home this weekend and tracking your progress. In a pinch, I could probably be at any trailhead in 3-4 hours if assistance is needed. Send me a PM if you would like my phone number for help with unplanned bail outs! (but then I guess it would be at least semi-planned, right?)
    Thanks in advance for your trip reports — look forward to reading them every year.

    I will second Dan’s offer word for word except it might take more like 3 to 5 hours for me to respond.  Also I will be going for a walk on Sunday so my response time may be extended to Monday if you leave a message on Sunday.

    Wish I were joining you guys this year.  Trip reports and photos will be devoured.  Good luck!

    Thanks for the tracking links. It might make me too jealous to watch very closely but I will probably check in on Monday.

    Looks like a great weekend (or longer) to be out in the woods. Have fun, stay safe and respect that water everyone!

    Yeah I can help with what I just learned!  I just switched from SPOT so I spent 5 hours today figuring out/confirming how to optimize all the preset messages, social media/contact posting, and battery use reduction.  I’d be happy to share what I learned but there may also be someone that’s been using it for a while.  I hope we’ll be rolling into Choteau around 4pm but I think dinner may be a safer bet.

    Still don’t have our shuttle situation completely locked down, but for what it’s worth, we’ll be at Lake Inez CG around 9am.

    If anyone happens to pass through with a couple extra seats, please let us know by sending an inReach message.

    @sgrimm

    Well, i’ve struggled to make this decision all week and still not set on it, but i’m pretty sure i’m not gonna make it this year. The snowpack and water levels are a bit more than im comfortable with and the time frame with that in mind pushes my timelimit to the max. I hope to see ya’ll next year if there is another one. I finally felt like i was ready for the miles this year too. Wish you guys luck and safe travels. I’ll be watching eagerly.

    Dan M, I need to stop by REI in Missoula this morning to purchase a Delorme as I forgot mine at home. Call me at 503-475-7918. I’ll be at our linkup point at Inez Lake CG around noon.
