#15 Jewell I. Getaway, May 18-21, 2023


NSPN Calendar

Event details


Level 3 trip that especially welcomes new kayak campers, and a reunion for those of us who don't see each other often enough. Here's a great opportunity for you paddlers who would like to try kayak-camping without the pesky bugs (beware of ticks!). This will be the 15th (almost) annual trip to Jewell, which has multiple campsite options and latrines. We typically have 10 or more (2016=record of 19!) paddlers, but an upper limit has not been established.
The Common Adventure Model (CAM) will be adopted

The SUGGESTED itinerary is as follows:

THURSDAY or FRIDAY: Arrive at _____ (multiple launch site options, with each pod working out details privately or on NSPN Message Board under "trips") on Thursday or Friday, May 18 or 19, in plenty of time for a ______am launch (HT is @ 1103 and 1152, respectively). If you are new to kayak camping, you may need extra time packing your boat, so plan on arriving no later than [BIB-2H]. 

SATURDAY: Agenda TBD-bring your ideas for a day paddle or island activities. Prior trips have included Whaleboat/Little Whaleboat, Potts Harbor (food), Greens, Eagle, Great Diamond, geocaching, Jewell's WW1 and WW2 military installations, and general camaraderie/gourmet foods around the camp fire.

SUNDAY: Back to cars via ????.

If you would like to join this group of friendly paddlers, or have any questions about this trip or camping in general, Private Message (PM) me. When you can commit, please RSVP HERE. You may be asked to add some personal info to the group's trip spreadsheet, closer to the start of the event.
