    Great trip & well organized, like having bud drop us off at beginning of canoe vs riding in it back all wet n dirty. The company was well managed & organized. I wouldve liked a longwr trip but thats cause tiver was high water n flowing nicely!

    Attached is what I had sent all members that RSVP'ed yes last Saturday:

    Thank you for your interest in the canoe trip coming up this Saturday (June 15th). We will be canoeing with Downriver Canoe (http://www.downriver.com). Ours will be Canoe Trip #3 (Burners Bottom). We will meet at 8 a.m. and should plan on returning by 5 or 6 p.m.

    Important: Please confirm by responding to this e-mail asap (by Tuesday latest) that you still want to do the trip this Saturday. Your confirmation is required for me to reserve canoes for you. (One-word response will suffice.)

    I will then reserve canoes for you and anyone else you included in your request, on my credit card.

    I will send out more details about the trip by Wednesday, with the detailed plan on where to meet, how to find partners, and what to bring.

    Thanks,

    Mano

      Sorry you need to confirm in order to know where we meet. I need a head-count since I am reserving the canoes. Please read the above e-mail first and send me a confirmation in order to go on the trip and get more details.

    Oh, by the way, I have to go to the Better Brain Center on June 15, 2013 that day. I am sorry about that, and I did not tell you this. So I will not be able to make it on the Canoe trip. What other times is the conoe trip and hiking trips?

    I think I need a ride. I live on 1719 Van Port Street Alexandria, VA. Thanks.

    Yes, I would like a ride to all hiking trips and so on. I am looking for a buddy to even take me to Six Flags America and Kings Dominion, and I am so tired of not going. Uh, I don't like that, when I do not have anyone to take me to an amusement park or theme park at all. Thank you very much for your time.

    Am restoring an old wood canoe, might be good to know how to paddle one, even if it is not wood.

    Canoe and hiking -- great combination . . .

    What's the expected swim proficiency level for this activity--no swimming knowledge needed, beginner, intermediate or advanced?

    March 10, 2013

    • Monster

      No swimming knowledge required but should feel comfortable in the river with a life vest.

      March 10, 2013

  • Monster

    Remember - you need to send me an e-mail in order to get on the list. It is not enough to sign up on meet-up for this event. Since money for the canoe trip is involved and this is a specialty event requiring much planning I need to know precisely who is going and need a rather firm commitment. Thanks.

    What is the cancellation policy for this event? I'm really interested, but my schedule can vary; I don't know what June looks like for me this far out.

    March 9, 2013

    • Monster

      You can cancel up to a week in advance without issues. I reserve canoes using my credit card so would appreciate a heads-up. That said I've never had issues with cancellations in the 15 years I've done this - if people need to cancel they should be able to. I worry about rain and other en-masse cancellations (fortunately never been an issue).
