Lets Paddle the San Marcos

The trip down the river should only take about 3 to 4 hours. If anyone wants a ride to San Marcos, they can ride with me and throw their kayak in my trailer for gas money. I also have a couple of kayaks and setups if anyone needs to rent them.

    Sorry, I missed y'all. My truck was broken into in San Antonio this past morning and by the time the police report was done it was already 9:50 and my phone was stolen, also. I managed to go anyway with the the help of TG Canoes to shuttle me to the top. Great river and will be sure to do it again soon. Are there similar rivers to the San Marcos in the Austin area?

    Very action packed paddle day! Thanks all for the fun and sharing! Very supportive group and i felt very taken care of :) Thanks Larry! You are amazing! There has to be a world record set for how many boats a person can lower over a dam! I even liked the tuber obstacle course! Have a blessed week!

    Are there any upcoming events after tomorrow's meeting?

  • Linda

    Is this the same area that the tubers put in?

    I intend to be at Rio Vista Dam by 9AM to see the "Safari" racers negotiate the crossing. Always a great place to watch from.
    I would suspect parking to be busy but okay by 9:45. Might suggest waiting at the Lions Club parking lot a little longer for stragglers driving through the traffic.

    What is Water Safari? If it's fun and you push it out a week, maybe I can join that event! :-)

      I have a friend in the race- if you haven't seen it, it's pretty cool to watch them start.

    Hello--WAs sure that I had written in a few weeks ago to change my RSVP, as I had a schedule conflict for tomorrow's paddle down the river and cannot attend. Hope you all have a great time.

    June 7, 2013

    Myself and 2 friends would like to join. 2 of us have kayaks but 1 would need to rent. I'm not real clear on where you are meeting. and where i should call to reserve a kayak. Can someone clarify?

      see above: We will meet near the Lions Club located at 170 Charles Austin Drive San Marcos, Tx. I'm easy to spot. My van has advertising for my AC business and it has a graphic of a waterfall in the windows

      Linda, I am out of kayaks. The others may have suggestions on where to rent one.

      June 6, 2013

  • Shannon Bailey

    Would love to do something like that, just can't do it this Saturday. :-/

    June 5, 2013

  • Larry Badgley

    Are you guys OK with going on Water Safari weekend????

    June 5, 2013

    • Jeff Lindzey

      I asked someone who had participated in Water Safari and they indicated that it would be crowded both in terms of parking and on the river. I think it would be better to push it out a week.

      actually I paddled the San Marcos on the exact same day last year and it wasn't bad. Just wanted you guys to be aware. the safari starts at the springs, so I believe parking will be ok at the Lion's Club

      June 5, 2013

  • Palmer

    Would like to carpool with my 2 kayaks

    June 2, 2013

    Larry - I commented my cancellation, but now I've changed the RSVP to No. Note that Ethan has asked to rent the kayak you had reserved for me. Thanks, Joel

    Just learned about this event and group. Wish my husband & I could make it. Maybe the next one :) Have fun!!

    June 4, 2013

  • Ethan

    Larry, Since Joel canceled can I rent one of your Kayaks?

    June 4, 2013

  • Larry Badgley

    Joel and Dave have claimed my 2 kayaks. I can take up to 5 people in my van. If $10 seems fair for gas money then let me know and we can get the logistics going on kayak and people pickup.

    May 31, 2013

    • W Joel Starling

      Larry - a conflict has just come up for me. I won't now be able to make Saturday - really wanted to, but I'm needed elsewhere. Hopefully 1) another trip is soon, and I can make it, and 2) someone else can now rent your second kayak. I don't want to leave you hung out on that, so if too late, I'm willing to contribute to the cause ...

      June 2, 2013

    • Ethan

      I'll rent Joel's Kayak!

      June 3, 2013

  • Jeff Lindzey

    There will be 4 of us. We have our own kayaks.

    June 2, 2013

  • Eric

    Larry: where will you guys put in the water and where will you come out?

    1 · June 2, 2013

  • Larry Badgley

    Of those attending how many currently want a kayak and how many need a ride?

    May 29, 2013

    • W Joel Starling

      Ill need a kayak. Not sure about ride - I might ride motorcycle but if sharing gas money and there's room, I will prolly ride

      May 30, 2013

    • Larry Badgley

      Does $30 sound fair for the rental?

      May 31, 2013

  • Susan

    Let's GO! I have a 12' boat and may need a little help with unloading/loading on my car....please :-)!
    I can get there for sure! What are the pickup plans?

    May 30, 2013

  • Larry Badgley

    I will check messages every a.m. for messages at about 7:00. Thanks for putting up with me during my busy time of the year.

    May 29, 2013

  • Ethan

    Didnt hear back, so canceled

    May 25, 2013

  • Ethan

    Hi Larry, I didn't hear from you today confirming that you'll still be bringing a kayak for me to rent. I wanted to make sure before driving all the way to SM! Maybe just send your number, I sent mine in a message earlier today. Thanks.

    May 24, 2013

  • Ethan

    I'll need to rent a kayak from you, or rent one in SM. Do send info and costs, thanks.

    May 13, 2013

    • Larry Badgley

      I have one that you can rent. Does $30 sound OK?

      May 22, 2013

    • Ethan

      Great, thanks. I'm assuming it's on your trailer and I can just meet you there, how are we getting picked up at the end?

      May 23, 2013

  • W Joel Starling

    I would like to join this trip - rent a setup, as I'll be riding my motorcycle - and can help with gas money! Thanks, this sounds really fun.

    May 22, 2013

    • W Joel Starling

      That sounds ok, thanks! If you have room in your vehicle, I might just ride along - but I'm flexible on that - I do have other transportation.

      May 22, 2013

    • W Joel Starling

      Dave - See Larry's comments to me about rental and gas money sharing ... could apply to you, as well!

      May 22, 2013

  • Larry Badgley

    Sorry about all the silence. My cell was hiding most of my G mails.

    May 22, 2013

  • Katie

    So where are we meeting up?

    May 21, 2013

  • Shannon Bailey

    MOC kayaks is a new rental place in east austin..they also offer shuttling for trips.

    May 14, 2013

    • Shannon Bailey

      Thanks for the clarification. Sounds like I can rent one on site where we are starting from in SM. Will try to track down the university outdoor center phone number.

      May 14, 2013

  • Michael Plemons

    REI rents them for cheap!! Also MOC kayaks

    May 14, 2013

    • Shannon Bailey

      Am showing my ignorance, but what is a MOC kayak?

      May 14, 2013

  • Michael Plemons

    Also the university outdoor center rents them there at Sewell park in San Marcos ... Call them first though.. For details

    May 14, 2013

  • Shannon Bailey

    Me too! I have kayaked but don't have my own. Thank you!
