Sounds even cooler than our normal full moon floats!
I looked it up - "A penumbral lunar eclipse will also take place. Perhaps for some minutes centered on the time of greatest eclipse (7:50 p.m. EDT) might the penumbra be marginally detectable over the moon’s southernmost limb; for at that moment the penumbral magnitude will reach 76.5 percent. Those living across the eastern half of North America might see some evidence of this faint penumbral shading soon after local moonrise."
Veterans of the Full Moon Floats know that this is a very easy run. There is no need to spot as we will be on the backwater of Cascade Dam.
We paddle about an hour upstream to the I96 overpass and then float back down. The last two times everyone was having so much fun that many of them went a bit farther!
Though conditions for paddling are Class 1 with an almost undetectable current, the dark adds a class and the cold adds another. Safety equipment, water resistant clothing and a large dollop of common sense make the trip fun and safe. Bring a light or headlight, we usually don't fire them up in the moonlight, but it is needed on board. Everyone appreciates the red light option to make it easy on the night vision.
Paddles in at 7:30 pm - come at 7 pm or earlier to unload.
About weather conditions.....strong winds/rough weather/pelting snow and or rain will cause a cancellation. A light snow with little wind would be ok.
Hope for a clear sky or patchy cloud cover so we can enjoy the full moon!
