I'm looking to help my sons boy scout troop a kayaking trip down one of the near by rivers. We are out of the houston area, so I am looking at colorado river, but am open to suggestions on other rivers? My plan would be to do a thru trip, where we are dropped off up stream and pick up at a designated location down stream.
I have never been on a trip like this, and not sure how many miles we should plan to travel per day. I understand flow rates, wind, heat, cold, etc will effect how far we can reasonably travel. Taking into account, time for fishing, lunch, and exploring, how many miles per day would you attempt? Again, this is with boy scouts, so inexperienced, immature boys be the majority of the group.
Any suggestions, advice, etc is greatly appreciated.
