Sunday 4/23 I am scheduled to organize a trip in NH on the Ammonoosuc River. The Ammo is 10+ miles mostly class II+ with a few harder pitches to keep it interesting. The Ammo will have water, though on the low end of boatable.

But... depending on interest, we could perhaps do a more challenging river Sunday. One other NH possibility would be the East Branch of the Pemi (EBP), a ~9 mile run. The EBP is about twice as steep as the Ammo, averaging 70+ feet per mile the entire way, that is full of class IV rapids in high water. It too is on the low end of boatable, making it more III-IV in character. A Joe's Brook run Sunday could be yet another option, 8-10 miles in length and considerably more remote and technically challenging than either the Ammo or the EBP.

I guess I need to start hearing from people about the Sunday scheduled trip. I don't have an issue with a day on the Ammo, but I would be happy to organize a more difficult alternative if the collective interest lies there.
