Saturday, at 2:15pm. Meet at my place for an easy 5 mile hike up Roaring Run Trail. Everyone is requested to bring something to share with 5 to 6 people. (Pie, cake, brownies, chips, etc.) Upon returning from the hike, at approximately 6pm, we can sample the various goodies that folks brought to share. After dinner, and around dusk, I'll light the bonfire, and we can enjoy the evening sharing tales of incredible feats. Please bring a chair to sit on around the fire. Overnight camping is suggested. There is plenty of room to pitch a tent along the river, and the garage has ample floor space to put a sleeping bag. The garage has a full kitchen and shower facilities are available upstairs. Please bring you're own towels and personal items. If you can't make it in time for the hike, you're welcome to come for the feast or bonfire. You're welcome to come early on Saturday to pitch a tent. For everyone camping, we can do breakfast at the Creekside Restauraunt across the river from Apollo on route 66.
Sunday, at 9:30am. Meet at my place for a 12 mile paddle on the Kiski River. The Kiski is a docile Class I River, with a couple of spots of mild Class II "fun foam". We'll set up a shuttle and put in at Saltsburg, and paddle 4 miles to Avonmore and do lunch. There is a pavilion and porta potty there. We'll then paddle to Copper Head Cove and take a swim break. (water temperature pending) From there, we'll paddle to my place, and take out.
After the paddle, I'll ask for volunteers to retrieve the shuttle vehicles. After the shuttle vehicles are retrieved, I'll make burgers on the grill for the group.
If you don't have you're own boat, I have a limited amount of yaks avaiable for use. I only ask that you help clean and stow them after the paddle. If you need to use one of my boats, please e-mail me thru this site, and if you would, include you're e-mail so I can verify directly back to you that you have a boat.
