Hudson Riverkeeper's Hudson River Days

  • Jul 19, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • Mills Norrie State Park

 

Free style cruising. 

 

On this camping trip everyone will be responsible for yourself.

 

There are too many unknown factors with so many new people.  As we all have come to realize, new members are not usually where they are supposed to be and in some cases decided to follow their own rules for safety.  Which cannot work in a civilize society.

Of the 33 people signed up, I only know where 8 people are staying…not good for the organizer.

 

So here is Jim and my plans: We are camping on site 22.

Paddling from the Mills Norrie Marina at 7:30 PM on Friday Night and at 10:30 AM Saturday Morning.

Please feel free to join us for either paddle.  The night paddle you must have lights, whistle and in addition to the other gear.

Bring your own food, camping gear, etc.

    Vikki,
    1) Which direction the group goes on Saturday? I'm thinking a combo. Start from other location join with the group and go back to my starting place.
    2) If I arrive early can I wake up the group?

    Hey guys! I will not be camping this weekend, but Mary-Ellen still has site #16. She has one tent on Friday night, and then will not be there on Saturday night. So, if there is anyone looking for a place to put a tent, contact Mary-Ellen. I will be coming up Friday for the evening paddle and will paddle with you on Sunday, if you will be paddling then. I'm going to pass on Saturday. See you soon!

      Hi Lucy. Just saw a message that Joan, only being 45 minutes away from Norrie-Mills, may not be camping, so don't have to worry about camping at the site.

    I only live about 45 minutes away so I may not be camping, do you have any idea when you will be kayaking? It sounds as if I have the same question as Terry.

    I would like to go (and camp as well) but don't have any gear. If you can let me know what's needed I can see if I can get everything by the date. I also don't have my own kayak...have been looking for a used one but haven't seen anything in good condition. Any info you can give would be helpful. Can I also bring a plus one or two?

I'll be bringing several cans of jell fuel for cooking. I'm new to camping out, so other than Success rice and some can food, I haven't addess food yet.

      March 30, 2013

    • Jim D.

      Was just viewing this .. I would call the company ahead of time if you are interested in renting .. and another option worth mentioning is that EMS in Poughkeepsie on Route 9 does full day rentals for around $50.00 it's about 13 miles south of Mills-Norrie if you can carry it on your car.
