I'm planning a paddling trip on Sunday, September 8th, 2013. This trip is in conjunction with the Soup Hike which is being held at my place on Saturday, September 7th, 2013. For more informatin on the Soup Hike, please go to the Pittsburgh Hiking Group, and click on Soup Hike for Saturday, September 7th. About the Soup Hike, basically people bring something to share with a few people, soup, brownies, pie, snacks, etc, and then we do an easy 6 mile hike. Upon returning from the hike, we sample the various goodies. This trip is in 4 parts. You can come to all or any one of the parts. When signing up, please be specific as to what part(s) you will be attending.
PLEASE READ THE HEADINGS CAREFULLY.
Part 1 -- Hike. Saturday, September 7th. Meet at my place no later than 2:30pm for an easy 6 mile hike.
Part 2 -- Dinner. After the hike, at approximately 6pm, we'll feast on the various soups and dishes that people brought to eat. You should bring a snack or something to share with a few people, (6 or so), brownies, a pie, chips, etc. After dinner, I'll build a fire along the river and we can enjoy the evening and share tales of incredible feats. Please bring a chair to sit on around the fire.
Part 3 -- Camping. Everyone is welcome to camp along the river. In the morning, we'll do breakfast at the Creekside Restaurant acrss the river from Apollo. The shower is available upstairs in the garage to freshen up. Please bring you're own towels and personal items.

We'll do lunch at Avonmore, where there is a pavilion and porta potty, and then proceed to Copper Head Cove for a a swim break. We'll then proceed to my place and take out. The Kiski is a docile class I river with a couple of spots of mild class II "fun foam".
