    Had a great time on this paddle. Thank you, Stan, for organizing. And, thank you, Cathy, for the wonderful picnic after the paddle. Love this special historic location. Great to see everyone, and happy to see such a large turnout. Looks like people really loved the Slipstreams!

    Thanks Stan & Kathy for a very enjoyable paddle. It was also fun to finally try out a Wee Lassie. There may be one of those in my future. ; )

    Thank you Cathy and Stan!! It's always nice to paddle with you. I did like the Wee Lassie I paddled today - it might be on my wish list!
    Nice paddle with some great people! And the chili hit the spot!

    This looks like a lot of fun! Great way to experience the creek and river while checking out some wonderful Erie Canal sites! Anyone interested, the Schoharie Crossing Visitor Center will be open Saturday from 10am-5pm (raindate Sunday 1p-5pm). Stop in and say hello!

      If you like viewing old buildings, the Visitor Center is a must see. Be sure to check out the artwork on the inside of the front door hinges. Just a little thing, but certainly not the kind of craftsmanship you're likely to see these days. And, the attendant there loves to share all sorts of interesting things about the area. Beautiful view of the ruins there as well.

    Sharon, I edited your map (above) to the boat launch on Dufel Road. That's the only put-in I'm aware of and appears to be the one Stan refers to in his directions.
