PADDLE DETAILS, AND FURTHER DIRECTIONS
This will be a 7.5 mile Green River paddle through Mammoth Cave National Park (MCNP). We will meet at Jason and Maria Stewart's Mammoth Cave hunting cabin which borders MCNP. This will allow those with food for the post-paddle cookout to drop that food off at the cabin. This is only a 3 1/2 hour paddle, so we have plenty of time.
As mentioned above, your GPS will get you close, but it is NOT exact. As you get near, begin noticing numbers on mailboxes, and we will have a couple of balloons on the entrance to our driveway. If you are not able to find us, call the cabin phone:[masked]-8780. BUT your cell phone coverage is limited in this area unless you are a Bluegrass Cellular subscriber.
POST-PADDLE COOKOUT AND CAMPFIRE:
There will be a cookout and campfire at the cabin when we return from the paddle. The Stewarts will grill hamburgers and hotdogs, and will have buns, condiments, soda, ice, and all the necessary plates, cups, plasticware and paper towels that we need. Feel free to bring your favorite beverage, and plan to contribute a side dish or a dessert, please. AND PLEASE BRING YOUR CAMPING CHAIR to sit by the fire.
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING PADDLE RULES:
* We are paddling through Mammoth Cave National Park. MCNP regulations require that you have a PFD in your boat, and they do enforce this requirement stringently.
* Please note you must descend 20-40 very TALL steps that are often covered with very slick mud to reach the river. If you have physical limitations that make descending these tricky stairs a hazard to your health please do not sign up for this paddle. Our group is always generous to help each other carry boats and such. But you do need to be willing, and physically able, to help in that effort. And we don't want you to end up with a broken arm, leg or hip because you did not acknowledge your own physical limitations.
If you plan to incorporate a little camping into your weekend, too, Mammoth Cave National Park has a great campground. You can find information about MCNP's campground by going to: http://www.nps.gov/maca/planyourvisit/camping.htm
