A Road Trip to PaddleSport 2013!
The Jersey Paddler's annual PaddleSport Show is the ultimate place to find out what is happening in the kayak world for the 2013 season. We will meet around 7:00 AM at a yet to be determined location to carpool to the show. Driving up and back with a few hours at the show eats up the better part of the day. I can take 3 with me and will be looking for other drivers to volunteer depending on how many people want to go. The Garden State Exhibit Center is about 175 miles from downtown Baltimore. Car poolers should expect to help the driver cover the cost of gas for the trip. For this trip I'd suggest a minimum of $10.00 per person depending on gas prices at the time and the fuel economy of the vehicle.
