Kayak the Au Sable

  • Sep 28, 2012 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The Au Sable river is one of Michigan's most beautiful paddles... And as a last hurrah of summer, I thought it might be fun to enjoy a kayak on this beautiful river... We will meet at my family's cottage Friday night and on Saturday head over to Rollways canoe livery to rent kayaks/canoes for a 5 hour paddle... The Au Sable is shallow in this portion and easy to navigate... The cost to rent a kayak is 35 and a canoe Is 45... We will pay the day of.... My cabin has beds for 11... So I am setting the limit at 12... I may increase the limit if people are willing to camp... The kitchen has a stove, microwave, refrigerator, and grill... We will have a potluck Saturday night, so post in the discussion section what you plan to bring!

    September 20, 2012

    • Caryn ;.

      Apparently I hadn't set it to open edit, it's all good now!

      September 21, 2012

  • Sam P.

    Okay I give up on the spreadsheet. I will have a main dish (chicken) and a side veggie dish and some fresh Naan for you Caryn. With trunk full of my favorite beer we should have a blast.

    September 20, 2012

  • lisa m.

    Hey there Caryn just wondered if we were on the list to stay in cabin or if we are renting just so we know? thank you.

    September 16, 2012

    • Caryn ;.

      No Dylan, I can't... This event has 20 people, people who signed up long ago... If you want to bring your students you will have to make yourself a plus 2 and be on the waiting list... Our restrooms cannot accommodate anymore than 20, which is why some people are camping at Rifle river... And those couch spots should go to people who have already RSVPed yes... It's only fair

      September 18, 2012

    • Dylan C.

      Yes, you're right. I might drive up Saturday morning and then go back after kayaking, if that's ok.

    Yes of course Jim! On our property we have room for 3-4 tents... So I set it at 20... Rifle River Recreation Area is a mile away... And if I exceed 20, I will list that as an event but camping at Rifle River... http://www.michigandnr.com/parksandtrails/details.aspx?id=489&type=SPRK
