Annual Kayak Trip

Recommended Posts

P.S.  There is no cell service on the river.  So we can't rely on phones to find each other.

Plus the fact that I never have my phone with me.  :D

I plan on launching earlier than you and floating down to your launch to wait for you.  You'll wait for us if we have all the beer.  That's my ace.

The launch that I found may not be an option.  I called the number on the sign from my earlier post, and they no longer own that property.  I am not sure if I'll be able to track down the owner next week, get in touch with them, and ask for permission.  I do have the # for the national forest station for that area to inquire about public launches.  The options are few.  

Worst case we do what we did last year.  Drop off our stuff at the launch, and pay $30-or-so-per-person for the bus ride up with your group to the launch.

Sucks, I would definitely be going, but I can’t do the almost 3 hour drive with my 8 mile to the gallon truck. 

Bummer.

Is this trip still on with the storm coming and is it to late to attend?

The trip is still on and you are more than welcome.   The storm won't affect us up here this weekend.  The weather is looking good.

Great. Is this kid friendly or an adult trip?

Kids are definitely welcome as long as they can handle a kayak and can swim they should be fine.  :up:

It's the upper Delaware so there are more rapids than further down.

Kenny,  thanks to our buddy Ken Beam you can see the exact stretch of river that we will be going down.  The "rapids" are really just glorified riffles.  The biggest rapids are where the Mongaup River comes in.  That's at 7:05 in the video.

The "rapids" are more fun than anything, and you can navigate around the edges for less fearsome water.

The kids will love the rapids!

So I called Kittatinny and here's their scoop:

Parking - $5
Launch fee - $2
Ride on their bus - $35/person

I might risk the roadside launch to save the per person fee.  They said I could park in their lot for $5.  Not a bad deal.

How many people are you bringing?

I was looking forward to it. But I can use the money to pay off the new Hobie Outback I just preordered
