ckayakers
If Connie's back has recovered we will bring our own kayaks, so count us in as hopefuls.

depth of Juniatat river

We are discussing which kayaks to bring for Meet and Greet. Does anyone know the average depth of the river where the trip would be? Is there anyplace that one must get out and walk? Thanks!

Hi Janet,

Last year when we kayaked, the river was low. There were a few spots that were shallow, but no spots were we had to get out and walk.

I would expect in June the river depth will be higher than it was last time when we kayaked, which was during the month of August.

Hope this helps.
Hutch

river depth

Thanks! That is helpful. We may bring our new kayaks instead of our old beat up ones.

Unfortunately we've already got reservations at another campground that weekend in Perry County.(free weekend my mother-in-law won in a raffle)

As luck would have it, we are fairly close to where the group will be camping! My wife and I would love to load up the kayaks and take the drive to make the float with everyone if it's not imposing, inconvenient, or against the campground shuttle policy. We'd hate to miss an opportunity to meet everyone, I guess we should've bought a Sunline much sooner!

We have our own kayaks and gear and any costs for shuttling are no problem. We'd just need to know what time the 'boat is leaving' so we can time accordingly.

Thanks,
Jason and Kim

Hi Jason,

We'd love to have you guys come! In fact, you should plan to stay for dinner. If you wanted to bring your food instead of going back after kayaking, I'm sure one of us has some extra room in our refer. And of course there's all the after dinner activities...don't want to miss those!

Jon

Jon,

Thanks very much. I'm looking forward to it. While we'd love to take the whole weekend, my mother-in-law has agreed to stay at the campground and watch our dog for the afternoon while we make the float trip. I'll run the idea by her to come along join the folks who aren't rowing while we're on the water and extend our visit through dinner and see what she thinks.

We have a German short haired pointer who can be a handful at times with a crowd of people without 'Dad' around. Basically, if her eyes are open, she's at 95mph. If Sue, my mother-in-law, wants to come join everyone, I'd probably just take the dog with us on the float if it was ok to put the dog on my lap for the shuttles, I'd even pay shuttle fee for the dog if needed. At any rate, I'm pretty easy going. We'll make the appropriate accomodations if there's any problems but we'll definitely be there for the float.

Thanks...
Jason, Kim, Sue and Kicker

Jason,

If you're thinking about taking your dog on the shuttle I would suggest calling Buttonwood to discuss that first.

The other option is that we could take your vehicle to the stopping point. If we take the same trip as last year, there's a parking area where we get out of the river so you could leave your vehicle there.

So there are other options than the shuttle.

Hutch

After being let out of the closet to eat this morning I was passed on information involving this camping weekend. I appreciate you bearing with me. As you can tell through my brainstorming ramblings here that my wife and mother-in-law normally plan everything and I do the lifting, packing, hooking up, dumping, etc.(which I actually enjoy)

The campground we're staying at will have some friends and coworkers that are employed with my mother-in-law. I was wary of running off to have fun and letting her sit with the dog but that's not the case. There's a pig roast at the campground that Sat night as well which I've found out my wife is excited about attending. So it looks like we'll just be doing the paddle trip and leaving the dog. I can't deny that I was thrilled about the idea of a pot luck dinner with a lot of camping folks. As someone said before, campers do make tasty food that's usually 'off the beaten path' of normal cuisine. I'll wait for the reviews and recipes and look forward to next opportunity to share some camping time with everyone.

Thanks,
Jason, Kim, Sue and Kicker

Update on Eastern M&G's Saturday Paddling Adventure.

Trip Overview:
Trip will start at 1 pm on Saturday.
It will be a 2 hour trip - Mexico to Muskrat Springs
We'll put in across the street from the campground.
With shuttle service provided by Buttonwood from Muskrat Springs back to the campground.

For Renters:
Please pay for your rental when you arrive or Sat. morning.
Tell them you’re with the Sunline group doing the Saturday 1 pm trip.

For Shuttle Only:
Buttonwood will provide shuttle back to the campground.
We’ll just need to tell them how many people & units that need shuttle only before we take off.
You can pay for the Shuttle service upon return to the campground.

Current count is:
Total participants: 28
Renters: 13 individuals; Units: 9 – single kayaks & 2 – tandem
Shuttle Only: 15 individuals: Units: 8 – single kayaks; 2 – tandem; & 1 – canoe

Here’s the list I have for individuals looking to rent:
Name .................................. # units & type
Jon, Dave, & Jill (Sunline Fan) . 3 – single kayaks
Tom & Mary (PTHutch) ............ 2 – single kayaks
chuck & lori (chuck & lori) ....... 1 – tandem kayak
Rob and Kathy H (kathyh) ....... 2 - single kayaks
Dave & Sue (Irishcamper) ....... 1 – tandem kayak
George & Judy (Wgeorgell) ....... 2 - single kayaks

Please let me know if there are any corrections or additions to this list.

I need to give them a final count of the number and type of units we want rent a week prior to our M&G so they can make sure the have the units available. There’s another large group going out Sat. AM, before us that they need to coordinate rentals with.

Here’s a link to Buttonwood’s Kayaking rental page for rental prices.
Sorry – I forgot to ask what the cost for shuttle only would be.

Here's the current list of Shuttle Only Participants
Name .................................. # units & type
Pam & Steve (Quetse) .................... 1 tandem kayak
Mike & Roz (264SRinPA) ................. 1 canoe
Lowell & Amanda (HappyCampers) .. 2 kayaks
Mike (Mike) ................................... 1 kayak
Fred & Janet (janetpowell) .............. 2 kayaks
Craig & Connie (ckayakers) ........... 2 kayaks (a definite maybe)
Jason and Kim (Lode) .................... 2 kayaks
Mark and Beth (have2camp) .......... 1 Tandem Kayak

Totals: 1 - canoe; 9 - Single Kayaks; 2 - Tandem Kayaks

PM me if you have any questions.
Thanks
Hutch

Hutch, really like the itinerary stuff, getting psyched. Do we need to sign up if we want a ride back to the campground after our trip. If so, put us down for the taxi service back. Thanks.

Dave & Sue

Dave,

I have you and Sue down for renting a tandem kayak - is that correct?
Or are you bringing your own kayak?

The rentals from the campground include their shuttle service. So if you're renting, your all set for the shuttle.
If your bringing your own kayak, I need to move you and Sue to the Shuttle Only list.

Thanks
Hutch

Canoe Sharing

I've never canoed, BUT, I'm willing if someone else wants to go with me. And IF we can still rent a canoe ? I think it would be OK, for me to leave mom for a couple of hours.

The kayak trip's start time may be pushed back to 1:30 - 2:00 pm.
Will confirm the time with Nancy @ Buttonwood early next week.

Let me know if a later start time is a problem for anyone that has signed up.

Thanks
Hutch
