Another reverse trick or treat event, we wear costumes and bring treats to the houseboaters ;-) Bring a headlight, and treats to give to the houseboaters. Yes, I do read my emails, including the requests for specific events ;-) We did this a couple of years ago and it was fun. Dress up in a costume. I will contact a few houseboaters, we bring treats with us and offer them to the houseboaters, they often offer some to us. Afterwards we can find a place to get food and drinks. Bring lights. If you know any houseboaters let me know. I am cross posting this to two other groups as well. Seattle Get Up and Get Out, Human Powered Touring, So far I am bringing kayaks for the following people - if you need to borrow and don't see your name on the list - contact me.

Rating: This trip is rated ‘protected’ or SK1. What to bring: What to bring: o Prepare to get wet, You might want to bring a towel and change of clothes. o Water bottle. There's water and restrooms at the park. o Refreshments and snacks for afterwards o Your sense of adventure and fun

Lights - at least one white light e.g. headlamp (not a strobe or flashing light) to be mounted on the kayak on worn on the person. Cyalume lights work great because they still work when wet. Fasten them to your kayak with duct tape.

Perhaps a power bar or dried figs to munch on.

Sense of Humor and fun. Directions to the meeting place: From 520 Eastbound take the Montlake Blvd exit and Turn right onto E Montlake Pl E and onto 24th street going south. Turn right at E Lynn St and after about half a mile turn right at 16th Ave E. From 520 Westbound take the Lake Washingtom Blvd exit and turn left at the end of the ramp heading towards the Arboretum. Turn right at Boyer Ave E. Cross 24th street and carry on to 16th Ave E, which is a slight right turn. Follow this into the parking lot. If you decide not to show up, please email me, or change your RSVP or even phone me at least 2 hours before the launch. No shows for borrowed boats are a headache since that means we delay launch while someone drives the empty boat(s) back to my house - can't leave them on the trailer or they may find a new home while we're out paddling, and towing empty boats while we paddle isn't that much fun. I'm sure all of you will have a fun paddle. -Saul cell[masked]
