Ring of Fire aka Paddle and Pyro

Help celebrate the end of summer on the Sacandaga. We'll paddle out to the islands on Sunday to be followed by a BYOB & F feast at 4. Bonfire at 8PM followed by major fireworks.

As in the past, those wishing to camp out and paddle on Monday are welcome to pitch a tent.

Last camp on left on Russel Lane off Bunker Hill Road

    Tom - Great company, a great paddle, great food! Nothing like paddling in a warm summer rain to feel close to the earth. The day was simply awesome.

    Tom, Susan, Christiane, Carl, Mike, Jo, Colleen: My apology to all for not finding the grocery store tonite. I did not have a phone # to call to let you know I decided to head home after driving around looking for TOPS grocery in North Hampton and going in several circles. I finally just gave up. I'm presently stuffed like a pig. My husband had dinner ready when I got home. I had a fabulous time paddling with all of you. It was lovely meeting each & everyone.

    tom, i am posting this in both groups because i dont know which one you read. i take it tomorrow is still on, weather permitting? what time should we be there? i am hoping to arrive somewhere between 12-1 pm.

    my plus one wants to bring her 4 yr old niece. she is planning on buying a life jacket for her tomw. she (my plus one/girlfriend/date) doesnt paddle, so the child will be supervised the whole time. is this ok? thought i should ask before springing a child on you ( a really sweet, bright child, but i am prejudiced.) i will look for your answer here before we leave tomw.

    Tom, sorry to bag on everyone tomorrow. Since the weather is to be a bit risky, I decided not to chance it. I had a prior commitment so I couldn't make it today.

    I was so looking forward to this weekend, but I regret that I'm going to have to bail. The weather is just too iffy. I spent a week camping out and hanging out in the wet and I don't relish doing it again even for 1 day/night. I can't come tomorrow instead because I have a prior commitment. Nevertheless, I hope y'all have a nice time.

    We are planning on coming to paddle on Sat. because we see the same weather report as you do on our satellite. What time is the best time to arrive? Have many people decided to go out on the lake on Sat.? Do you think that the camp owners on the lake will change the fire ring to Sat. evening?

    T-Storms and showers possible for Sunday. Sat & Mon look good so if anyone wants to paddle on Saturday that'd be OK

    Well, I did a little paddling for the first time this season. Only went out for an hour with a friend. I needed help lifting the boat for the put in and pull out, and my arm did get tired during and it still is a little, but I'm not in pain. Hopefully, I won't be. If all stays OK, I'll bring her next week. I'll be taking it really slow and probably keeping it short.

    • John M.

      it is both of those. i just didnt want to sound like i was bragging. i am willing to let you use it for a while, but its the only one i have, so i would either have to borrow one from somebody else or stay on shore while you use it. not a bother, either way. i think you will find it really does make a difference.

      August 25, 2014

    • John M.

      my only concern is that it might be too long for you. i remember you as being a bit shorter than i am, but go ahead give it a try.

    Hi Tom. There were 2 posts for this outing and I signed up on one of them. Don't see my name so I will sign up again. Leo and I are looking forward to getting together. Always a good time. Thank you.

    tom, what would be good to bring for potluck? i seem to remember you are vegetarian... is there more than one grill, one for meat, another for non-meat stuff??

    August 24, 2014

  • Jill H.

    Oh BTW, I'm planning to bring the crock pot of beans. Can I still plug it into an outlet at your mom's place like I did last year to keep it hot?

    1 · August 18, 2014

  • Jill H.

    I don't know if I will be able to paddle or not. I've still got some pain in my left arm (although not as bad as a couple of months ago), but I would still like to attend the festivities.

    August 17, 2014

    • John M.

      It will be nice to see you again, paddling or not.
