Sunday Crib Crawl

7.5 mile paddle to the orange water intake and back. We will raft-up at the turn and have a snack. Also can practice wet-exits, re-entries and rolling if desired. Alternate destinations will be considered, but the default location will be the Crib. Experienced kayakers only. Novice paddlers are welcome to come out and stay inside the break-wall. Marine radios, one for every four paddlers, are required. Paddlers must stay in groups for safety and boater visibility.

    It's so nice to have a buoy that looks more like a ship up close, to use as a destination for our ocean kayaking outings. I think about the Atlantic Ocean and I don't know of any such markers off the coast of any seaboard town or city along the East Coast of the USA. Another reason why our Lakefront is pretty awesome when you think about it. Neat to notice the transition between the Cuyahoga River outflow and the larger Lake water.... you can understand why the Crib, the inlet source for Cleveland's drinking water is located where it is.

    Paul G, a recent Eagle Scout recipient, joined us today. At 18, is he the youngest person ever to kayak to the crib? Likely not, but possibly so. Anyway we celebrate his recent accomplishment becoming an Eagle Scout. Bob Hogan also achieved the status of reaching the Big C(rib) today. He celebrated by morphing into a sea otter on the way back to our launch site...

    I wouldn't mind going but my son is heading back to OSU on Sunday afternoon so I'm spending the day with him. I'll be heading to Nimisilla on Saturday afternoon to get my paddling fix in. Have fun and paddle safe.

    That's round trip Bob. It's called the Five Mile Crib. Five miles is the distance from the crib to the Kirkland Pumping Station east of downtown.
