Have you ever wondered what the best way is to pack a kayak for an extended paddling / camping trip? Well join me this day to see how some of us do it. My friend, Greg Bailey, a veteran of kayak camping, will share his knowledge with us and offer some tips and tricks. Greg will bring his kayak and all the gear that he would usually carry for a four day / three night trip to the Everglades. The Packing Demo will begin at 10 AM.
If you want, bring some of your gear and load your boat to see how launching & paddling a loaded boat feels on the water.
Also, bring your kayak and after the demo and QA (1+ hour) we'll have lunch in the park then we'll do a paddle along Julington Creek.
If you only want to join us for the paddle, we'll be launching after lunching sometime around 12-12:30.
The new Julington Creek Fish Camp is located next to Mandarin Park. Some people may want to grab a bite or a drink there after the paddle.
