Details

We are going rafting down the Kern River and camping at Lake Isabella! This will be the 6th trip & always had a blast! Plus lets visit the Sequoia Trees!

The funds cover rafting, Friday & Saturday dinners & pastries and coffee for breakfast & the campground. :) Bring your sleeping bag and come pitch a tent with us. ;)

Besides rafting, we may kayak depending on water flow. We will go down the river twice.

We have our own private campsite so everyone will hang out together! We are right on the lake with beautiful views and opportunities to explore day and night. Let's have a blast! We are close to civilization - near the supermarket, drug store, Starbucks and more.

Itinerary:

Friday - drive up about 150 miles. Ideally leave before traffic, but if you have to leave after work that is fine! When you get to the campground set up and then hang out and mingle with everyone.

Saturday - With your new friends, visit the Sequoia trees and secret waterfall in the morning. Then head back raft in the afternoon! Hang out with your new friends in the evening!

Sunday - you can head straight home or do something else such as see more Sequoias, enjoy some hot springs and/or try out the water slides.

Questions:

1. What do I need to bring?

A full list will be provided a week or two before the trip. But basically you need to bring your personal amenities and tent, sleeping bag air mattress etc.

2. What if I don't have a sleeping bag and/or tent?

If you don't have a sleeping bag buy one or borrow one. You don't need a fancy one - a $20 one from Big 5 or Target will do. Or you can ask here is someone will share. Every time we've done this trip people have been willing to share tent space.

3. How does carpool work?

The organizers will coordinate carpool for confirmed attendees based on where people are leaving from, when they can leave and whether or not they can drive. Departure times are determined by drivers. Expect to hear more about 1 week prior to the trip. Please do not use the comments to look for carpool - we will handle it.

4. What will the weather be like?

Typically the weather in the area is high 70's/80's in the day and high 50's at night. It's great weather to raft and camp!

5. What if I don't know anyone else going - is it weird to go by myself?

Not at all! Most people come by themselves to these events and have a blast and end up with a new social circle of friends!

6. How do I lock in my spot?

This trip is posted on many Meetup groups. I am centralizing everyone going into one group. If you want to go you must RSVP on my main group. Spots go to first paid, regardless of when you RSVP. This trip will fill up quickly so if you want to go lock in your spot with a payment. Here is a link to my main Meetup with more details and payment instructions: http://bit.ly/RaftingMeetup

This has been one of our most popular trips and has always been a great time!
