Taylorsville lake longboat workout paddle

I will be paddling from settlers trace boat ramp on Taylorsville lake to the chowning ramp & back if anyone wants to join me. It's 19 miles, about a five hour paddle in my 17' sea kayak. It's an out & back so you don't have to go the whole distance unless you want.
I'll be leaving the ramp at 3:00 pm, hopefully the cool front & clear skys will be here.

    I would have liked to join you. I have a 17 1/2 foot Necky Looksha IV. But as others have posted, by the time I saw the post you were almost in the water. Perhaps a week's heads up?

    I live on 15 acres just across lake above Van Buren boat ramp. 7 miles from Van Buren Ramp driving, but can see the ramp when the leaves are off trees from my place. If you'd like to camp at my place, everyone is more than welcome. If it's 9+miles to Chowning, probably at least another mile to Van Buren. Or to stretch it out you could paddle to bridge where the Salt River turns into the lake. Wraparound porch good sleeping too. A shuttle to bring people to house from Van Buren, could probably borrow neighbors trailer, my rack will take 3 boats at best off lake at a time. Just offering, wouldn't be quite as long of a paddle, and if folks are up for just landing somewhere and enjoying being in the Country. Showers too can be had of course, but being clean/unsweated over-rated when camping. Organizers let me know, open to suggestions for any Taylorsville Lake paddle, have a wonderful landing place I'd be more than happy to share.

    A thing about an advertised meetup.... it probably should be posted PRIOR to the hour you are going, maybe a few days prior, so maybe others can consider and try to plan on it if they want. If it's not, just post it on Facebook or something.

    19 miles in 5 hrs? On flat water? Workout indeed. Like to hear an after report.
