Lakes Trip February 2016

I have started to plan a Lakes trip for the weekend Friday 19th to Sunday 21st February 2016.  The plan is to run rivers like the Kent, the Lune, the Leven and anything else we can squeeze in.

Although the guides describe two of the rivers as grade 4, it is possible to portage the harder features. If you are comfortable paddling the Dart Loop, you would be able to paddle these rivers, probably with some portaging. Portaging is not a problem, last time nearly the whole group portaged Backbarrow Falls and the weir beyond it. 

Unfortunately, the Kendal bunkhouse where we stayed last time is fully booked for this weekend. Please let me know if you would like to come on this trip. I will try and book accommodation in the next week or so, so need numbers as soon as possible, as bunkhouse are obviously already filling up.
