"If You Can't Stand the Heat, Paddle at Dawn" Saturday Algonquin 6:30 am launch

  • Jul 6, 2013 · 6:15 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

I hesitate to add a THIRD paddle to Saturday, but I figured those who sleep late won't even see this. I simply.can.not.stand.the.heat.

Meet me for a 6:30 am launch at Algonkian and we'll see what really goes on while others are dozing. Mist off the river; bird calls you've never heard before; fish jumping for breakfast. Be off the river before the heat sets in for the day.This is a 3 hour paddle upstream, suitable for beginners.

There are no rentals, there is a $4 launch fee. Must have PFD, bilge pump, paddle float and water.

Hope to see you there. Yes, you. I'm talking to you.

    Wonderful, peaceful morning paddle to the sound of many herons swooping. Thanks so much for waiting for me. I've changed my mind about 6:00 AM put-ins.! Thanks Madeline and good company all.

    Need to stay home and deal with broken air conditioning.

      Yeah. Good luck. They charge more the hotter it gets.

      Wait til people discover that recharging R-22 freon up to 5 lbs now costs $[masked] because it's being taken off the market!

    I think you can use your OWL pass here and not have to pay the launch fee if you hang the OWL pass from the rear view mirror. Kinda thinking about coming out with y'all. This is a great early morning paddle

    Good luck! Motivation: cool air, slight breeze, a jug of cawfee. Cream and sugar?

      How about french toast and sausages? That would lure me.

    IF I CAN GET MYSELF OUT OF BED BY 5:00 AND PACKED THE NIGHT BEFORE. WISH ME LUCK!

      same goes for me.

    It's probably safer that early in the morning since the jetskiers are probably still sleeping.

    I love it... paddling during the coolest part of the day... and off the water by mid-morning... simply brilliant!! :0)
