Hosted by Diane Lapointe! Let's meet at K.P. Hole at 9 AM - Anyone who wants to caravan could meet up at the rest area at mile marker 278 in Pasco County at 8 AM. If renting a tube, canoe, or kayak, call[masked] to make reservations, and do that as soon as possible. The cost per person to enter the park is $5. Rental rates are available on the website: http://kphole.com
1)THE FLOAT TAKES 4 HOURS. There is no getting off the water along the way, as the river is lined with residences.
2)We can bring coolers with snacks and drinks, but those items in the coolers MUST be in non-disposable containers. All coolers are subject to search by law enforcement...and they do.
3)Sometimes the parking lot may fill up, so cars must be parked elsewhere. We may need to park some cars at the take-out point and shuttle to the park (it is about 5 miles away).
4) It is advisable to make reservations in advance for any tubes, canoes, or kayaks that attendees plan to rent, but we may also bring our own.
Floaters should be aware that the river is in the sun the entire distance, so wear hats and be prepared for lots of sun exposure.
