Hey Wet Dog,
VERY IMPORTANT READ BELOW FOR UPDATE ON RAINBOW RIVER PADDLE meeting place.
We have 16 Wet Dogs going so far. Still have a few kayak rentals available if you are on the fence about going.
A slight change on the Rainbow River Paddle for Saturday (tomorrow) We're now are going to meet up at KP Hole (county park) We'll be putting in there and paddling down river to where the Withlachoochee River joins the Rainbow. Then we'll paddle the river to our take out at Lake Russo. About a 6- 7mile paddle.
To get up to KP Hole take the Veterans Express toll road up to Pasco then to Hwy 41. It's about a 2 hour drive from Clearwater. Just click on the Wet Dog site trip directions to get exact driving directions. If you get lost call me on my cell at 727-235-1959, however sometimes reception up that way is sketchy. Everyone up there should know where KP Hole is located as it's a very popular tubing place.
We're going to do a shuttle at Lake Russo. So we'll all drop off the kayaks at KP Hole then a few of us will drive down river to the take out at Lake Russo to drop off the kayak trailer and then shuttle us back up river to the kayaks and the put-in. At the end of the trip we'll load all the kayaks up on the trailer and complete the shuttle of kayaks and people.
Volunteers for the shuttle should have room for four or more paddlers. We'll determine who can help with the shuttle at KP Hole.
