Tuesday July 22 - Kirkland Paddle for those that need to borrow

Description: We will paddle near Kirkland in  Lake Washington

The weather is supposed to be nice  , it's time for a paddle.

As discussed earlier with the cost of maintaining the gear, I am starting to post events separated into the ones where people borrow gear (I'll charge $10 for those) and ones where people have their own gear (those will remain free).

Lets meet for a  paddle on Lake Washington  This trip will depend on the weather. We’ll meet at Houghton Beach Park  at 6:30pm for a 60-90 minute evening paddle.

Schedule:

6:15-6:30 find parking

6:30-6:45 carry kayaks to the beach

6:45-8:00 - paddle

8:00-8:15 carry kayaks back to the trailer

8:30 - Dinner at Beach House Grill


This trip is for those that need to borrow, if you have your own kayak, sign up in the other paddle.



Our launch and route is fairly sheltered but we still need to use our heads and our equipment. . If you are signing up in this meetup, I am assuming that you need to borrow a kayak, if you have your own, then sign up in the other event.

[b]Rating:[/b] This trip is rated ‘protected’ or SK1. A wet suit or dry suit is optional.

[b]What to bring:[/b] [*]Kayak, paddle, Paddle Float and Bilge Pump. [*]PFD,

Clothes for paddling, something that will keep you warm if damp, Kayak Shoes, [*]Change of clothes for after, towel. [*]Rain Hat [*][*]Perhaps a power bar or dried figs to munch on. [*]Sense of Humor and fun.

    What do these events usually cost? I still need to buy a used kayak and paddle, plus a wet suit. Is anyone out there selling? I am fairly petite…5 foot 4 inches & 120 lbs.

    Saul is very helpful to make sure we don't get eaten by crocodiles!

    Saul, is it possible for me to change to next week and have the money apply to that time?
    Let me know & thanks

    Hi, Saul. I had such a lovely last time I did this, and I'd love to do it again, but I might be overly optimistic. I get the stitches out of my hand this coming Monday, and I hope to be able to resume fairly normal activities. Can this be a yes, with the possibility of becoming a no? (Sorry...)
