    Great first paddle of the season. Just a little slow getting started but once on the water everything worked out. Thanks to all who helped with moving kayaks in and out of the water. Looking forward to our first Wednesday night paddle. Thanks Doug for putting all of this together. See you on the next paddle.

    Doug, does the kayak rental include a PFD? Also, I'm assuming this is cash only? Looks like the weather is going to be awesome!

    Hi Doug! Would it be too late to add a +1 to my RSVP? I have a friend that really wants to go and she would need a beginner kayak. Thanks :)

    April 4

    • Doug C.

      We have a huge group and I'm already working on a plan so we can accommodate everyone…so we should be good. Please update your RSVP so I make sure your friend is included in my count. Thanks Tara.

    • Doug C.

      Argh. Hopefully we will see you soon. This time without the skis and with a paddle!!! :-)

    Doug, I was planning on bringing the Diesel so I would be warm and have to paddle so you will not have to deal with 17 ft.

    March 29

    • Doug C.

      hahaha The river should be running good so in your 17' you'd be done in with 2 paddle strokes. hahah

  • Rachel K.

    I don't gots a kayak Doug, I'm a beginner, I feel like you wanted people to tell you if they needed beginner yaks.

    • Doug C.

      WHAT!!! You can't go out of town on this spectacular holiday (Self pro-claimed holiday). hahaha I'm probably going to run a trip on April 12th. Working on the details.

  • Rob

    Hi Doug, I'm looking forward to finally getting out with your kayaking group this weekend and I will need to rent a kayak from you. I hope to find a decent one to purchase soon!

    April 1

    • Doug C.

      Awesome Rob. I'm looking forward to meeting you. If you have any questions during your "hunt" for the decent kayak let me know. You can send me a message anytime with questions.

      April 1

  • Cari

    Hi Doug. It looks like I have two friends coming with me. Two of us have our own kayaks and one will need a rental. Do you need any more information?

    April 1

    • Doug C.

      Great Cari!! Glad you can join us. I don't need anymore info. I will load a kayak for your friend. If something comes up and he/she can't make it please let me know sooner than later so I don't have an unattended kayak sitting on the trailer. Thanks and I I'll see you soon. :-)
