- Paddle the Great Egg Harbor River, Cl. 1, Sun., Nov. 17
The Great Egg Harbor River is part of the National Wild & Scenic River System; it is officially designated as "Scenic & Recreational." On Sun., Nov. 17 we will paddle 10 leisurely miles from Penny Pot County Park (Atlantic County, NJ) to historic Weymouth Furnace County Park. "The Egg" is a Pine Barrens river, which means you can expect a mostly gentle current, with some narrow twisty sections (especially in the first mile), and the possibility of a few strainers and maybe a blow-down or duck-under to contend with just to add to our sense of adventure. We'll end the day by celebrating our exploits with a bite to eat at a local diner (optional). Not suitable for beginners. This is a cold weather/cold water trip, so plan accordingly. Wear drysuit or wetsuit if you have one; otherwise wear layers of wool, silk, and/or poly. NO COTTON! You must have your own canoe or kayak and the means to transport it. Everyone is expected to participate in the shuttle. Bring lunch, snacks, beverage, plus a change of clothes in a watertight container; also rain gear in case of an unexpected shower. PFD's are required. BEFORE you RSVP, please contact the trip leader, Ira G., via email at [masked] or call[masked] (before 9pm please) for details on where we are meeting, and to confirm that you are on this trip.
