This is a Level 3 trip that welcomes those new to kayak camping, and is 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 is a replacement for this year's May trip, for which mother nature had other plans. Jewell has many campsites and several outhouses.
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, October 12 or 13, in plenty of time for a ______am launch (high tides are 10:29 am and 11:04 am respectively). If you are new to kayak camping, you may need extra time packing your boat, so plan on arriving two hours prior.
FRIDAY and SATURDAY: Agenda TBD-bring your ideas for a day paddle or island activities. Prior trips have included Whaleboat/Little Whaleboat, 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 ??
