This trip is water dependent and will be cancelled if water or weather are not suitable. It is held on the best whitewater stream in Indiana (yep, whitewater in Indiana). More details will be provided to those interested in going. This trip is a solid Class II (harder than the Pine or Rogue) when the water is up. But at low levels is suitable for beginners. It is located about 30 minutes west and south of Lafayette, IN. For those who have never experienced this creek, it is a very surprising and beautiful stream that will make you think you're in Tennessee. One of Indiana's best kept secrets. Cold water gear is required, and experience paddling in rapids with big (3'+) waves.
If you've been thinking about trying whitewater, this isn't a bad choice for a starter (assuming the water levels are reasonable). It's pretty straight-forward and safe. The road runs along the river the whole way.
Normally I drive to Lafayette on Friday night and stay in a motel. But early risers could drive in Saturday morning if they choose to. Meeting time is 9:00 AM in Pine Village (center of town).
Once the group has been identified, we can make arrangements for ride & room sharing to help keep the costs down.
