    Laney, Just and FYII am actually a plus 3. We have all contacted Rondo. Also do you have two helmets? Rim Rock does not rent them. Rondo has also asked about confirming the number of participants. I told him that you show 6 confirmed which includes my extra. Look forward to meeting you and the rest of the group.. Very excited to do this.

    Laney, do you have an extra helmet? They do not rent any. I did speak to Rondo today and also called and reserved a kayak from Rim Rock.
