Announcing a new Meetup for Outdoor & Snow Lovers!What
: Bank to Bank Paddle TripWhen
: Saturday, October 23,[masked]:30 AMWhere
: (A location has not been chosen yet.)
There's been a good amount of ideas, and interest in Fall Paddling
. And, with Our 'Lilydale Hike
' RSVP is closed --
Let's head out for a day on the water starting on the North Side of the Cities (Anoka-Ramsey area) where we find the Mississippi West Bank and head down to the U of M area where we find the Mississippi East Bank. Along the way we can stop for a some munchies, stretch our legs and enjoy a park setting.
I am planning this trip for canoeists, however if you kayak you are more than welcome to come along!
We will carpool, and caravan up to the launch site together. It would be great to be on the water by 9:30am, so to do that I'd like to have all drivers meet at 8:00am at the finish point. At the finish point we'll leave a few cars so we can pick up the vehicles left behind. I may have a creative way to get around this part of the trip but it might a few bucks. Let's just leave it as a TBD for now.
The limit has been set to 30 in anticipation of approximately 15-20 boats. I usually paddle solo, and their may be other solo paddlers. You don't have to paddle alone if you don't want to.
I will coordinate paddling partners.
Everyone will be required to wear a PFD, and so if you're renting a boat we'll need to make sure you get one at the same time - if you own your own PFD - that works for me.
*** I have a variation on this trip if the response fits. I will wait until I see what kind of sign-up I receive. Looking forward to meeting up on the water !! ***
