Shit Creek Moonlight Adventure
Paddles Optional

 

Join us tonight, April 1st, for a very special Shit Creek Moonlight Adventure.  This is one of our very rare paddles where attendance is limited to 400 to allow more members to participate.  I don't want to hear any more whining about you not being able to attend a paddle because it was full.

Despite the fact that water temps are still in the extremely dangerous 40 degree range, no Cold Water Attire is required.  What do I care if some of you get hypothermia.  Believe me hypothermia will be the least of your concerns if you fall in on this one.

Even paddles are optional on this one, that is if you don't mind putting your hands in the water.

We'll be on the water promptly at 10:00 PM from the Shit Creek Public Boat Ramp. Please plan to arrive with plenty of time to have your boat and gear ready to go by then.  Rentals are free for this paddle and even if you have your own boat you may want to consider a rental so you don't have to power wash your own boat tomorrow.  I will also provide PFD's but will not be renting paddles.  Just answer YES to the rental question when you RSVP.

Happy April First Everyone!  And yes for those of you who don't appreciate sophomoric humor, I'm done with the April Fools stuff for this year.

    P.S. For those that want the full experience, you might want to come early and pay attention to Fearless Leader’s Full Moon demonstration. He has recently gotten a new tattoo over the winter season, an “M” on each cheek. And the interesting thing is, depending on which angle you are able to view the tattoo, it could say “MoM” or “WoW”!!

    Happy Paddling everyone, because everyone deserves a good paddle!

    I guessed it was the "insider name" for the Patuxent!

    April 2, 2013

    • Chuck

      Perhaps but only the Patuxent south of me and I live on a septic system so you can't blame me.

      April 2, 2013

    • Rose C.

      I would think this would be more of an insider name for the Inner Harbor.

    I can't pay you any complements better than what has already been said. You hit another home run Chuck!

  • sherry k.

      Of course, although, you will be bringing up the rear....just sayin....CKA can always accommodate more on the back end….

    Anyone who doesn't get why this is such a fun group needs to log in and read this thread. Where else do people have more fun on a paddle that doesn't happen, than most folks do on meetups that do happen!

    Sorry I was late Chuck, butt I had a blowout on the way. Thanks for organizing this! I had a great time as usual!

    I though everyone would have problems finding the place but I guess most of us have been there before. I had a great time on this paddle. Thanks for participating everyone. I'd do my best to forget about sophomoric humor until next year. Everyone I kicked out of the group yesterday is welcome back.

    A couple of us went out in the wind storm (had some gusts in the 40 - 50 MPH) and experienced this all first hand. But don't worry. Everything came out all right though we were very wiped in the end.

    April 2, 2013

  • Rose C.

    THANKS CHUCK....FOR THE NO SHOW...NOW I AM HERE WITHOUT A (YOU GUESSED IT) PADDLE.

    Hey, where are you guys?

  • Ben

    Chuck - I'll have to rent one of your kayaks for this paddle. I'll be there right after the all-you-can-drink-for-free Happy Hour at the Ho Co Police dept HQ.

    April 1, 2013

    • Kimmie

      Ben can I join you there before the paddle! I hope they have lots of rum!

    • Ben

      Yes, Please join me - they've got barrels of rum!

    Here is a link that was captured during a recent covert operation against the Evil Emperor Zurg.
    This link shows how the evil forces of Zurg have infiltrated our society with this type of thinking.
    It is how we now know how and where SHIT comes from.

    Sorry, last minutes, My friend backed out. Have FUN everyone!

    • Chuck

      Yoshi, sometimes I just have to say DAI-SU-KI and leave it at that. :)

    I am laughing hysterically at all of your comments. The conversation keeps going further down hill and you all are having way too much fun with this ... but not more fun than I had this morning when I fecetiously kicked a bunch of you out as an April Fools joke. Yeah ... I know ... I need to be looking over my should for quite a while on that one.

    April 1, 2013

    Chuck's finally doing something he knows a LOT about... The Wedensday night paddle has now become the Pooper Paddle. All the dog people will be ready and experienced.

    and you thought those were eels in the water, Chuck!

    ship happens!

    I personally can't wait to see the pictures from this paddle.

    April 1, 2013

    • Randy

      And you will, I have two already, but I guess I can't post them until the paddle is over.

      April 1, 2013

  • Gloria

    Chuck, you should change your moniker to Grand Pooh-Bah for this. See you at the crack-o-10.

    April 1, 2013

  • Randy

    Chuck, I think you are being fecetious.

    2 · April 1, 2013

    • Chuck

      This is definitely a FECETIOUS paddle. Good one Randy

      April 1, 2013

  • Bill

    I'm at the ramp now, doing a little fishing before the paddle. All I'm catching so far are these brown fish hanging out near the surface. They smell terrible, but they sure are easy to filet. See ya'll there.

    I will need to rent a boat and PFD for this one too! By way, how can I host if I was TERMINATED from the group today???? Hmmm! I guess if I host I am back in??? Does this mean I can get back to the naked kayaking??? I really want to do that for this one especially, don't want to ruin any of my good paddle clothes!

    April 1, 2013

  • Toni

    Oh God - I am obviously a groupie - If Chuck & Kimmie are leading, I will follow. I do want to rent for this one though.

    Looks like mud-wrestlin' heaven. Kayak jousting- ladies vs. gents? If I host the event, will that get me back in the group?

    For those that do attend the “Shit Creek Paddle”, here are some recommendations from the Star Command manual on this type of event;
    Proper protection should be worn. I guess the type of proper protection is up to you. Although, I would be considerate and consult your paddling partner. That way it can be an enjoyable paddle for both of you.
    Since this is a “Full Moon” paddle, I would also recommend proper hygiene. That would mean before and after this event. Proper preparation is key to your ability to completely enjoy a ‘Full Moon Shit Creek Paddle”
    Additionally, because this is a ‘Full Moon” paddle, and we know how Fearless Leader like to adhere to strict protocol, be prepared for a “Full Moon” at some point during this event. Some of you might want to prepare yourselves in the event this does happen. Counselors will be on site at the end of the paddle.

    Gonna pass on this one as I have been there before (not an enjoyable trip)...and I would not want anyone else to miss out.

    April 1, 2013

  • Melanie

    Sounds like 'fun' but I was expelled from the group this morning for my shit-faced antics, of which I have no recollection.

    April 1, 2013

  • Steve

    I'm actually busy at that time. I have to see a man about a horse.

    Oh yeah, what day is it?

    I was going to offer to bring good drugs for this shitty problem, ie lomotil and imodium, but since I got kicked out of the group this morning, no way...

    Im bringing 60 guests. Can we rent?

    That creek has the darkest tannic acid I have ever seen...wait, the color isn't caused by tannins.

    I'll "unload" on the Anacostia and meet you where it "dumps" into the "head waters."

    Does this mean attendees will no longer be full of shit?! This is hysterical - made my day! Thanks Chuck.
