This is a scouting trip to find camp sites for future trips. We will meet in Cady Park and launch from High Bridge, it is about 10 miles of paddling and will take 2-4 hours.
This description is missing a lot of information due to my navigating off the page while typing - I will add it back in soon.
This is a river paddle, I am limiting to a small group of 5-8 paddlers, I will manage the invitations by selecting people we are comfortable with your skills from the waiting list, if you don't get selected within 48 hours of joining the list, it means you're free to do something else.
Safety - you need solid handling skills, strong eddy skills, bracing, awareness of water movement and obstacles to keep yoursel safe.
