Description: We will paddle near Kirkland in Lake Washington
The weather is supposed to be nice , it's time for a paddle.
As discussed earlier with the cost of maintaining the gear, I am starting to post events separated into the ones where people borrow gear (I'll charge $10 for those) and ones where people have their own gear (those will remain free).
Lets meet for a paddle on Lake Washington This trip will depend on the weather. We’ll meet at Houghton Beach Park at 6:30pm for a 60-90 minute evening paddle.
6:15-6:30 find parking
6:30-6:45 carry kayaks to the beach
6:45-8:00 - paddle
8:00-8:15 carry kayaks back to the trailer
8:30 - Dinner at Beach House Grill
This trip is for those that need to borrow, if you have your own kayak, sign up in the other paddle.
Our launch and route is fairly sheltered but we still need to use our heads and our equipment. . If you are signing up in this meetup, I am assuming that you need to borrow a kayak, if you have your own, then sign up in the other event.

I could use a hand loading gear if someone wants to help.
