    Great trip down a beautiful river. Exploring the less traveled river was icing on the cake.

    I arrived late and didn't really get to meet anyone, really hardly anyone, but had fun and am glad I went. If you didn't organize it I probably wouldn't have known about it and also might not have made the effort to get there.

    Found some neat little canals off the main river that we explored, which I have never done before.

    Do you think we will be allowed on the river at 11:30 PM? or did you mean 11:30 AM?

      definitely PM. - midnight float. j/k!

      Now on a midnight float we might have to worry about the alligators! Lol!

  • Shannon

    I might like to carpool with someone if possible. I live in St Pete but could drive to Tampa & the rest of the way with you, not sure where everyone is located. I did invite some teacher friends & if they're free, we'll be our own carpool but thought I'd see if there were other options, too, in case they've started back at school already.... thanks!

    Just kayaked the Rainbow from K P Hole yesterday. Beautiful float, great weather until we exited the river just about 3 PM. Storms with heavy lightening started just after 3. Looking forward to this trip.

    Approx. how long does it take to get there from north Tampa?

    July 29, 2013

    • treehouseyoga

      about an hour and 40 minutes from the usf area.

    This is my first time with the group and I was going to wait until we met to ask, but let me get it out of the way now. I'm from the north. Can someone explain about tubing in a river with alligators. I saw a big one the other day, not moving, but I don't think I'd want to be floating by him.

    July 29, 2013

    • treehouseyoga

      there are alligators in the river. we haven't lost anyone yet!

    I'm not 100% I can do this...but it does sound like a blast so I will do my best!

    This definately sounds like fun. With less than 1 month living in Florida, I have to wonder if there's more than just otters and fish in that river. Well, count me in. It will be my first time out with your group.

    I will be bringing my girlfriend if there is enough room. I recently moved back to Florida and haven't been tuning in years.
