Summer solstice night time kayak

It's the first day of summer and 2 nights before the actual full moon....lets bring in summer while floating down the salt river under a nearly full moon.
We will meet at the Shell station to set up carpools and shuttle vehicles. Tonto passes required for all vehicles, they can be purchased at the Shell station.......we will put in at the water users parking lot. I will decide where we take out when the date gets closer..........depends on water flow.
Please be very comfortable kayaking a river, kayaking at night is super awesome but navigating some of the rapids at night can be intimidating if your not some what familiar. Please bring a life jacket, and a headlamp. Alochol is fine but please drink responsibly....its a Friday night so a little BBQ at the take out point is always fun!!

for those who need to rent a kayak there are several places, I know several people have used the Salt River Kayak rental....Captain Ted.

    Karen, I'm leaving work really late. It's almost 6 and I still have to pack up the car, so I doubt that I'll make it this time, but I really want to do this trip! So I'm hoping there'll be a next time...
