Announcing a new Meetup for Louisville Area Canoe & Kayak Group!
What: Land Between the Lakes 3 day trip.
When: Saturday, July 3,[masked]:00 AM
Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)
The actual details of when we'll be leaving and where we'll be launching have not been decided yet. I will post further details here when we've decided, but feel free to express your opinion in the comments or fourm.
The general idea is to leave Louisville early Saturday and return Monday. We can coordinate where we paddle so that people who want to leave on a different day can still get back to their cars and head home. So you won't be forced in to staying every day.
My idea is to paddle the southern portion of Lake Barkley, which is actually in Tennessee. We'll need to purchase back country camping permits so that we can camp anywhere along the shore of the lake on the West side. This portion of the lake has many small islands and appears to be very scenic.
The general area we plan to kayak is at the link below, but a put-in hasn't been decided on yet. But you can get an idea of what the area looks like and see all of the islands in the area.http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=36.576662,-87.898178+(islands)&sll=36.576713,-87.893903&sspn=0.009564,0.01929&g=36.576662,-87.898178&ie=UTF8&ll=36.576662,-87.898178&spn=0.076509,0.154324&t=h&z=13
