  1. Well, we’re just back from a weekend at old quarry (we’re NH residents!) and I have some rather good news to report. Old quarry campground is open this year and will remain open for the foreseeable. A young entrepreneur (Eric), getting bored during the stay at home weeks earlier this year hatched a plan to run and manage the campground for the current owners. In a deal where the campground stays open, Eric gets a salary and Bill gets a retirement income. Win-win-win. I can report that it is still every bit as well appointed, well run and kayaker-friendly as ever whilst being very respectful of all COVID-19 requirements such as cleaning schedules and mask wearing.
  2. Hi Folks, We confirmed at the NSPN committee meeting last night that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be cancelling all club trips, at least for the next couple of months - So unfortunately we will be postponing this trip to Hermit island for the time being. If things look better later in the year I might see if we can run this in the fall. Failing that, it'll be on this time next year. Hope you understand. all the best Nick

    ON HOLD - I hope to reschedule this later in the year Back by popular demand! NSPN will be returning to Hermiit Island campground for a paddling weekend; a great location and a lovely stretch of coast https://hermitisland.com/ The plan is to arrive late on Friday and do day paddles on the Saturday and Sunday All NSPN members welcome, details to follow PM me if you'd like to come! (spoiler alert - there is no hermit and it's not on an island)

  5. I already have a flag on the front of my Kayak
  6. We'll bring a gluten-free Chile sin carne (veggie)
  7. Josko, Sadly not. My Palm drysuit died way too early and Palm were having none of it. Very poor customer service compared with Kokotat/ Goretex - you get what you pay for I guess. Does anyone want a sea-kayaker scarecrow? Nick
  8. Hi Rob, we’ll both be there. Ali’s shoulder is still giving her a bit of gyp so she’ll make a decision on the day whether she’s up for the L4 or will opt for an easier paddle
  9. TBH, a little bit of me winces when I don’t see a VW badge on the front
  10. Pru, you want to have a look at my new Metris - a great little van (sized between a full size Transit and a Transit connect) By the way, The Kari-tek roof rack is very much the Freight train of the roof rack world; robust, well made, capacious... ...heavy, rattley, un-aerodynamic and a pain to store when you're not using it Nick P.S. I think that's a Metris hiding behind the kayaks in Rob's Kari-Tek photo
  11. We'll be gong to this on Wednesday - anyone else? https://www.northernforestcanoetrail.org/event/paddling-film-fest-concord/ Nick
  12. The Hermit island trip that I ran last year seemed to go down really well. The format worked; Travel Friday night to a campsite in Maine with a beach then do day paddles with Saturday evening at the campsite. Travel home Sunday after a short paddle. I plan to arrange another similar weekend in May/ June of this year and wondered if anyone could suggest alternative locations. Are there any other beach-front, tent-friendly campsites that you could recommend? Nick
  13. Fantastic! I mountain biked out to Drake’s Estero a couple of years back. It’s stunning. Last year I paddled at moss landing, just south of Santa Cruz, there were otters!
  14. Pearsons will bring gluten-free sweet potato Mac and cheese
  15. Keep me in the loop, you can get to some unexpected places on a very high tide
