Kayaking on Lake Erie!

  • Jun 1, 2014 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

The weather is suppose to be A-M-A-Z-I-N-G on Sunday and Mark from the company said the lake will be nice and flat with maybe a wave here and there.  I am totally stoked to get back to one of my favorite things in the world... kayak/raft/water :D  Its not too late to sign up and get some sun and kick back on the beach :)  $25 for three hours is pretty hard to beat!   Hope to see you there!



....UPDATE PART DEUX....

Here is the link to reserve your kayak. Please pay it but Friday evening to ensure availability :D. We will meet at 9:30 and launching at 10. We have them until 1pm with maybe a little leeway at the end. (Is that how you spell leeway?!). Lol.... Also you may have to copy and paste this link as I am doing it from my iPhone and I am technologically inept!!!! http://kayak41north.com/schedule.aspx?SectionID=99&ScheduleID=885

Rates: $15 first hour. $5 each additional 1/2 hour. Not too shabby I think ;)

UPDATE......

I am POSTPONING this kayak trip for one week. It will take place no matter what (sans lightening on the lake) on Sunday June 1. 41 degrees north emailed me back! They cannot guarantee availability of kayaks since it is their opening weekend and it is short notice. As far as reservations go for June 1 I will create a private registration link and you can preregister and pay individually online. This saves me from getting stuck with a bill for those who no show ;) I will close the link on Thursday May 29th so as to give them enough time for kayak availability and to give us a concrete head count as to who is going. If you have any questions, comments or concern please feel free to give me a buzz. [masked])Hey Everyone!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am excited to put together a kayaking outing!  This trip is open to everyone of all levels.  And if you have never even been near a kayak, don't worry we are here to make it all comfortable and easy breezy.  This trip will start out at a livery called 41 Degrees North at the marina in Rocky River Reservation.  At the very north end of the park. 

 As of today (5/13) their mailbox is full and I haven't received an email back discussing rates and times.  However I wanted to post this meetup to see how many people would be interested in going.  I am opening it up to 10 spots as I don't know what their opening weekend (Memorial Day weekend) will be like.  I will keep you all informed of updates concerning times and rates as I get them (when I get them) from the livery.

On with the fun...  We will kayak down a canal and out onto Lake Erie to explore the shore.  There is a great little beach that we can paddle to and get out and maybe have a little lunch.  

So what should you bring?  

1.  Number one is some kind of dry bag for keys, camera, wallet etc.  Lunch baggies are ok but can come undone.  You can pick up a fairly cheap dry bad at Dick's.    

2.  Sunscreen...you will get sun even if it is cloudy and nothing ruins the weekend like a bad burn.  So sunscreen and a hat.

3.  Swimsuit/trunks.... YOU WILL GET WET!  Avoid jean shorts and tennis shoes.  some kind of Teva or Chaco sandals are ideal.

4.  Lunch.... feel free to pack a snack or lunch for when we dock at the beach.

5.  Water...because I am not filtering Lake Erie...

6.  Towels for you and your car on the way home ;D

 With all this being said if you have a major fear of water I would hold off on this trip and wait until a RIVER kayak trip comes up.  Being out on the lake can be intimidating for someone with a fear of water.

    Peace, love and bubbles to everyone. Great kayak day!
    Now I learned a couple of things from this trip.
    1. When you commit to a yes RSVP, I expect you to be there. If you CAN'T make it you absolutely NEED TO CHANGE YOUR RSVP. ( Thank you Laureen for doing so.) It is not fair to me, the organizer of the trip, nor the company that I am trying to make arrangements with if you can't login and change your RSVP. This is especially true of any trip that requires any kind of rental as the company needs a head count to have the appropriate amount of equipment. (emergencies obviously need no notice.)
    2. If the trip has a posted time to be gone from 10-1 expect to be gone from 10-1. I do not want to cut a trip short because one person needs to be back at a time before the end of the trip. Just keep that in mind.
    It was an amazing day out on the water! Thanks for all who showed as I enjoyed meeting you guys and look forward to being friends :D
    Hugs

    To everyone kayaking tomorrow (or for those of you who can't make it to the water and are interested in some great food).... Lakewood is hosting its annual Taste of Lakewood tomorrow from 2-7 @ Madison Park. I plan on heading over there after kayaking for some delicious sampling :P Here is the link in case anyone wants to join me. :)

    I made my reservation on their website but not through the group link. I am bringing my son so I reserved a tandem.

    I'm sorry, but work obligations will prevent me from joining this weekend. I hope you all have fun. I would like to one day get into kayaking, as this is something I've been interested in the past few years. Maybe next trip...

    I would love to go, but have a birthday party to throw.

  • Ruth

    I've never been kayaking, but I'd like to try. I might be blind and reading too quickly, but I didn't see a rental fee? Is there one?

    May 27, 2014

    • Lori 's 💛's 🌄's, ☕, 🍻 & t.

      $15 first hour. $5 each additional half hour. That's not too bad. :D. You should paddle along!

      May 27, 2014

    • Ruth

      Thanks! I just found the rates in your original post. I am blind. Definitely considering this one.

    Hoping it works out that I can make it

    Good decision moving the date. I was out on Lake Erie last night and the water is in the mid 50's.

    May 22, 2014

  • beth

    Not sure at this point but - can you use your own kayak and/or would it be the same rate anyway?
    Thanks! Haven't gone on a trip with this meetup but want to!!

    1 · May 20, 2014

  • William A. W.

    OK, now I'm interested since the date was changed...Will have to check the schedule to confirm if I can join, so hopefully it doesn't fill up until I get back on Sunday...

    Possibly going!

  • Lori 's 💛's 🌄's, ☕, 🍻 & t.

    I'd like to plan a weekend kayaking trip where you kayak, camp out and then wake up and kayak. That would be great! I'm a lookin' a livery that offers that :)

    1 · May 14, 2014

    • Lori 's 💛's 🌄's, ☕, 🍻 & t.

      I checked out their trips online today. I would like to do one this summer :)

    • Damon

      Lori.. If you're thinking Kayaking and primitive camping ... Allegheny Reservoir is an option. You can blend kayaking and even some hiking.

  • Two T.

    Hi! I'd love to go and ben too (my kayak tested dog) We will be on the Quehanna trail for a 60-ish mile trip. Hopefully next water trip we can go. Enjoy! Peace, Two Tents and ben

    Oh, I am so jealous. I'll be up in Canada that weekend, but I'll remember to bring my pfd home so the next time you plan I'll be ready.

    Water way too cold...be careful. Lake Erie not for novice.

    I'd love to come...I have been wanting to go on a kayak trip, but I'll be in the Red River Gorge that weekend. Have fun and hopefully I can make the next trip!
