Three friends and I are trying to plan a trip after school, and had a couple questions. First, a couple details: we want to paddle the Colorado River from Austin to the coast. We've done tons of hardcore hiking trips before and we're all really fit as well as know how to pack light for these things.
Would we be better off with canoes or kayaks?
If we're going downstream, how far can we expect to travel per day? Assume 8 hours of hard paddling.
Would it work to just take hammocks and blankets for sleeping?
Any other advice for us?
Thanks in advance for the help
