Mon Aug 25 - those that need to borrow

Description: We will paddle at the north end of Lake Washington

It's Summer, 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 Logboom Park for a 60-90 minute evening paddle.


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 - pizza at Paglacias

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.

    Meet-up says 6 spots left ....... did you go down to 6 from 12 and close the rsvp's? Just curious as I'm trying to get my friend to come with me and they don't have a boat.

    • Saul_K

      No, I close rsvps so that I know how many kayaks to load, I usually set it when I set the event up to be automatic a day or two in advance, then people have to call or email me to get in last minute

    • Saul_K

      Otherwise, I get people signing up after I leave the house.

      August 25, 2014

  • Barb B.

    Saul any chance of a waitlist?

    August 25, 2014

  • Wanda C.

    Do you have volunteers to help load boats yet? I have my own but can help if others can't.

    August 24, 2014

    • Saul_K

      I have everything loaded but thanks

      August 24, 2014

    • Saul_K

      Actually just added someone, so help loading would be great

  • Monika

    Sooo... I decided to take the plunge and start looking for my own kayak to buy this fall. Any advice? If at all possible, would like to try a kayak of a type that you'd recommend - but whatever's convenient - thanks Saul, and looking forward!
