I unfortunately can't make this weekend, but this would be up my alley, as I'm a four-season hiker and would appreciate a warm place to stay sometimes, over a frigid Mahoosuc-style, higher-altitude shelter!
Sounds like fun! Don't mind of there's snow or not, still can enjoy the north country!

One easy and convenient option is to camp out on one of the Boston Harbor Islands. http://www.bostonharborislands.org/campground-reservations They are beautiful, and some are right near the beach. Check it out. Will you be bringing camping gear?
I'm interested in a day trip, but need to know the date to see if I can get off work. I have a canoe to share (kayak too), but we;d need to stay with salt bays/marshes or the larger rivers (i,e, Pemi, Saco) due to the draught. Also interested in a moderate day. Let me know

Another easier version... although it doesn't include food or sleeping accomodations, is taking the train up the coast and picking a few California, Oregon, or Washington areas to ride.
I'm totally open to suggestions. My thought was for it to be more leisurely and easy pace. If more experienced riders want to go it can be a faster pace, more distance... just being sure to leave enough time to be sure you don't miss the boat. But slower, more leisurely so you get to enjoy the cities we are visiting could be nice too. Since people might be interested... maybe I'll start looking into dates and prices and stuff.

Kayak paddling class(es) at Natahala out
Date: Region: South Atlantic Activity Type: Kayaking/Canoeing Place: Bryson city, NC
Looking for a couple of guys who want to take a weekend class in whitewater kayaking, advanced beginner or intermediate.
>>Read More and View "Who Likes It"
Hey that sounds awesome! It would be beginner for me cause I've never kayaked?? Have done a fair amount of whitewater canoeing.
Great Idea, I taught both ww kayaking and canoeing up here in New England for many years. Even if you never use those skills on ww, they make flat-water paddling infinitely easier and if you ever get into sea kayaking those old ww skills are indispensable! Without a "high brace" for example, forget being able to launch and land in surf easily and safely and the same goes for learning to control a kayak with your knees. Just wish you were doing this up here because I would certainly help out.

That's terrific. We should do a couple things to get started. 1) We should figure out flights and hammer something down soon before they start to get more expensive; 2) We should reserve a room for the night we arrive; 3) We should reserve bikes & panniers. Once we do that, I can provide more details and can get this posted as an event, and not just an idea. I'll send you a PM with my number.
I like it. I should be saving money but I actually am off work those 4 days. I haven't been riding since my last century ride in the fall... but 30-ish miles in an all flat environment is doable. So I'm interested. Jase, Orange County, CA

I was going to rent a canoe from Apalachicola Maritime Museum. They do a dropoff upstream where you can cut across and go down the St. Marks to the bay. They only offer canoes and sit on top kayaks, which is hard to manage with a dslr (camera and lenses).

Thanks Kayakpal! Unfortunately, my weekends are busy until mid-May, so April 29th wouldn't work for me. I was thinking about May 20-22, but I'm somewhat flexible at this point. I also wanted to point out in case it wasn't obvious, this is an overnight hike (actually two nights). So you'll need to be prepared to sleep outdoors and prepare your food on the trail. The nights can get cold in mid-May, so bring a good bag or be prepared to snuggle.

If you guys are going to be there on Sunday, maybe we can all meet up after 5 and do dinner in downtown Lake Worth, though I suspect all places are going to be packed. Another alternative is a cookout at my place. My house is about a 20 minute walk from Bryant Park, or 5 minute car drive. I think my "duties" as a marshall will be done by 2:00 p.m.. In any event, let's see if more people are interested, and we can plan accordingly.

Anyone up for setting up a day to hit the water and go kayaking/canoeing on the Hillsborough River?
Here's a place near Tampa that rents out canoes/kayaks.
My partner and I (both Northern Californians) are making our first trip out to Florida at the end of March. The plan is to focus on wild natural places and experiences in the West Central part of Fl. We are experienced kayak canoests snorkelers and would love to join nice fun local guys on any river adventures that might be planned during that time. Let us know if/when it might be happening. Also would love to hear of any other spots or adventures we might not want to miss. Thanks!
Hey guys. Thanks for the replies. I headed out on the water today from Sargent Park in Thonotosassa to check out the site. There's a $2 park entry for vehicles in the county park and the canoe/kayak rental is located right inside the park at the launch on the river. I opted for for 4.5 mile route up to Flint Creek then back down the river to the Morris Bridge Park. It was an easy paddle and I took a leisurely 3 hour trip snapping pics of plenty of gators, turtles and birds. I'm definitely
