    The event was a lot of fun and the weather was better than expected. If there was a gathering of TC Paddlers, I didn't find them. I didn't see a sign or anything identifying the Meetup group but there was a lot of activity at the launch site, so I might have missed it. I hope everyone else enjoyed their paddling.

    It was a nice casual peddle (we had the Honor kayaks) down the Mightyssippi.

    Enjoyed the paddle and happy the rains came afterwards. I never did see where/who was meeting for the Meetup either.

    Here we all are, ready and excited to go. I don't know anyone from the group. Feel free to introduce yourselves as you paddle by as I'm new to the group and there was no meeting point for introductions. I hope everyone has a great time and all stay safe.

    Do we bring our own kayaks?

    I would really really love to do this, however, I do not have a car, so I see very difficult going there... Is there any possibility of carpooling? That would be so nice...

    Where is our group meeting for this awesome paddle? Are we buying the shuttle pass or do we have our own shuttle drivers? These may seem like odd questions, but this is new for me in MN. I've kayaked in FL and KY and only on a few lakes here in MN. This looks like a super fun time and I'm looking forward to doing it with this group, who's also new to me.

    Sounds like a great time in our own back yard. Sure would like to do the Minnehaha Creek sometime too!
    Never Kayaked, hope it's not too difficult.

      I would love to kayak down Minnehaha, while the water levels are still high - did part of it last yr. Is it possible to do a kayak/camp trip? I have heard that one cannot kayak in the green space/parks along the creek but I would assume that one can acquire a permit.

    Sounds great, but how "in-shape with experience" does one need to be for this? LOL!
    I'm a beginner. Is there more information in finding out of what's all involved; all day event; etc?

      I did it last year - not very in shape or experienced then :)

    I am new to this as well, am anxious to meet other people that want to learn more about it. I just bought a kayak!! it would be fun to even do that route from st. cloud to clearwater!!! 4 1/2 hrs

    Boats are not provided, however there are plenty of places you can rent canoes. single kayaks or tandem kayaks from around town.

    April 1, 2013

  • Cary E.

    What type of boats will be provided? I am 6'3" 205 pounds and don't fit in a small kayak very well and have little experience in them. I am fine in a canoe.

    yes this sounds like a great day already. I'm just not sure my skills are up to a trip on the Mightyssippi! only kayaked 4 times do far. second time was a sunset tour of the sea caves in the Apostle Islands and 4th time was paddling upstream on the Potomac. Maybe I do have enough experience. is there rental location nearby?
