Can anyone tell me about the Sandy & the drift from Oxbow to Dabney?
Is it difficult? Would like to go on game day.

I've floated it probably 6 times and I don't think its bad at all...If you'd like we could put in together and float it this weekend

I'm planning a Sat am trip....but game day sounds like a good plan as well.

Trapped inside my own mind.
that section is a very untechnical easy float.

Dodge to Oxbow has some waves... mostly class II, II+ and a couple class III.

Below Oxbow all the way to Lewis and Clark, you don't really have anything to worry about. Just avoid any logs you see at all costs... But below Oxbow, you're golden

Good, giving me some confidence for the next trip! Haha yea we just had no idea so we opt'd to go with something we knew was easy... even though it gets real shallow in parts..

I'm all set...got Grant from sandy river shuttle to get my rig down to Dabney $20 plus 5 for the park pass call him @ 503-312-9204 or we can leave your rig at Oxbow and I'll run you back up and we can split the service?? either way works for me

I'll be in a silver jeep patriot with an aluminum Willies... Oxbow @ 8am

call Loren @ 360 619-8563 please leave a message
