Harvest Moon Float

The Harvest Moon welcomes back our fall full moon floats.

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 early to unload.

LeAnne suggests a  campfire and hotdogs - how about a little potluck at 6:30.  We'll get a fire going, bring your grilling meat and a dish to pass.

Please leave a note in the discussion stream if you are attending the potluck.

Afterward....a local pub on a Friday night sounds like it would warm us up afterward!

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!

    We had a great time howling at the moon and then some bonfire folks joined in the howling.

    Is 6:30 going to be enough time to build a fire, eat and socialize???

    Is it an issue if I bring one extra person? I tried registering it but It was full. So I will have me +3 maybe :) Thanks!

    I plan to be there with a guest, it is our first float with you folks and should be fun.

    I am not sure where we put in kayaks at that park. It has to be above the dam! I'd be happy to be the firebuilder.

    A potluck cookout sounds good to me.
