Float the Madison river

We should take advantage of the warm weather and float the river! We could meet up, do some floating and hangout. I'm free all day on the 12th, so let me know what time works!

    How about we meet at the parking lot in the mall by Fuckruckers? We can easily leave cars there and it's right on the way out of town. See you guys at noon tomorrow!

      Great! I'm gonna bring myself, my tube, my car, and maybe a couple beers/snacks. If I find my exercise ball pump, I'll bring that too.

    Sounds fun! I'm down to drive and have a car that seats 5 (plus room in the back). What's the situation with the tubes? Do you rent them at the river?

    July 9, 2013

    • Jennifer

      I know there are sports stores in town that you can rent from or you can buy one. Depending on how fancy of one you want, you can buy ones for $15. Make sure you don't get black or another dark color because they get HOT! LOL.

      Thanks for the info Jennifer!

    Hi all! I agree with Brianna. I'm leaving town Friday night so if we could go earlier that would work better for me as well. I would say between shuttling the cars, blowing up the tubes and floating takes about 3.5 hours. Hannah is correct. I do have a pump which I'll bring along with rope and such to tie ourselves together. Also I have a dry bag, but another option for beer is bringing my cooler and putting it in your extra tube Hannah. What do you think? Either way we must have ice for the beer. For 8 people we really only need 2 cars if the tubes aren't inflated and there are 4 seats in each car. As far as tubes go you can buy them at bobwards, walmart, big o tires and ace hardware. I got mine at walmart for $10. It just depends how fancy you want it to be and how much you're willing to spend.

    I don't mind going earlier. I bet that if we left by 12 or 1 and everyone already had their tubes we'd be okay on timing. What do you guys think??

    Linda... yes. Just... yes. You should probably buy a tube-- it costs as much as renting from a place in town and then we can go again and again! Walmart has some for $10... and I love them because they lock into the ones we already have. You can also get one by going to a tire store-- they have the big thick black ones for cheap, but I don't know how much. Let's just plan to have all tubes before arriving so that we don't have to make an extra stop. I'll bring the dry bag for drinks, but with eight of us we might want more. Katy, can you bring your other one? Katy also has a pump that plugs into the car :) I volunteer her. And Katy, if that doesn't work, I'll go buy one before. Looks like with 8 of us, we might need 4 cars instead of 2, but that's okay! I'm very excited.

    Hannah- how long does it usually take to float?

    July 9, 2013

  • Brianna

    I have to work Friday night so the latest I can leave the river is 6pm so I can drive back and change for work. If we float at 2 will we be back in time or does anyone mind going earlier??

    I'm going to try to make it, I've been dying to do this! I just have to see if I can move my work hours around. I'll know for sure by Thursday.

    Details so far...
    Meet in the mall parking lot at 2 pm and we can get into a couple of vehicles and head out.
    Hannah- are you bringing your dry bag for drinks?
    Does anybody have a rope to tie tubes together if we need to?
    I think I have an air pump that is for an air mattress. I will check and make sure, but just in case does anybody else have one that plugs into the car?

    Can't wait to meet everybody and have a great afternoon on the river!

    Brianna and I have both been before. It's actually pretty easy-- we all meet in Bozeman and drive two cars down there. We have to have enough spaces in the cars for everyone and all the tubs (may be without air though), so we might end up with 3 or 4 cars if it keeps growing :) You drop one car off at the first turn out, and then everyone hops in the other car with the tubes and heads down to the far parking lot. Blow up all the tubes there and float! Then we've got a car waiting at the end and we all hop in and go grab the other car. Ice and beer-- big pluses for anyone who ikes a drink or two along the way. Both Katy and I have a dry bag that we can fill with beer and ice to attach to the tubes. Someone in the group has to have a pump for the tubes (the ones that attach to the car are awesome). And a robe can be helpful to tie all the tubes together if they all arent the same kind. Hope that helps!

    Is anybody going to this one that also went tto the last one? I've never done this, so if anyone has any suggestions on details let me know! As it stands, we are meeting at 2. I'm assuming we need two vehicles, one to leave and the put in and another at the take out? If people want to.carpool, I have a Jeep so.I could take 3-4 people with me.
