Tubbing* the Delaware!

So I went on this trip a week early to check it out and polish up some of the logistics. We will meet up at the I-95 Park and ride that is off the last exit before you go to NJ. From there we will pack into the cars and shoot up to the end spot to drop off the some cars and then head north about 10m to the boat launch.

 

This course is about three or 4 hours long. It has a rope swing about half(ish) way through it(thats where the variable time comes from). The water is mostly deep through the whole course(about 8ish ft) so we shouldnt need to worry about the tubes too much. There is nearly no debris on the river, that was nice.

Things you will need:
- A tube

- Sunscreen

-A towl and change of clothes

-A dry bag(keys phone ect)

-Adventurous and lazy spirit!

 

Here is a map from the meet up spot to the ending spot.

As usual if you have any question please dont be afraid to call/txt me!

    The tubes are still 7 bucks at target, I bought one extra, just in case. Everyone, don't forget to take slippers, the place where we are greeting out of the river had lots of stones

    I've been tubing on my own and with rental companies--DEFINITELY prefer going on our own. I have a small car, but I'd be willing to park down river and carry some deflated tubes/riders if need be! Plus I could rally up more friends!

    So the ending spot for this isnt far from new hope. How would you guys feel about going out after? Maybe Triumph in New Hope?

    July 15, 2013

    • Cary

      This has been posted as sunday for far to long to change it. I will be hosting another, if not two more, of these tubing adventures! So no worries, we will get you out on the water!

      This is free minus the cost of a tube! I know about DelRivTubing, i have been and i think its much more fun to go without a rental place. I normally have an extra tube but i'm bringing extra people so i wont for this trip.

    There is a place of 322 that you can go tubing, they sell beer too. Went last year with the cousins and it was a blast.

      I have a Solid strategy for the logistics of getting everyone to and from the cars. We can sort that out once we know the carpool situation.
