  1. I intend to paddle solo out of Odiorne on Saturday also if I can get a reservation. I will plan on launching a half hour after Prudence's group, to avoid congestion or confusion. I realize I will be risking mud and difficulty finding the channel. Just saying...
  2. Good thing we wear pfds, I would not want to be in that 20m deep water for long!😄
  3. Hey Dave when I talked to them they wanted me to ship the paddle back to them and replace the mechanism for a large fee. Did you do the replacement? what is the process, I'm thinking it probably involves heat...
  4. A beautiful day on the water! Average 2.5' swells with occasional sets slightly larger made for nice rock play and surfing at Wallis Sands. Present, myself, Bill Harter, and Kevin Beckwith. The water is really warming up! track-61620-95649am.kml
  5. I don't think you can do it by phone. When I said we used our phones I meant for internet access: https://newhampshirestateparks.reserveamerica.com/camping/odiorne-point-state-park/r/deDetails.do?contractCode=NH&parkId=270106
  6. So that's not the whole picture. Even though it's not stated on that list of restrictions, you have to make a "reservation". We were able to do this today with phones and credit cards but it would have been easier to do it from home.
  7. I'm not available this Wednesday but I don't see the limitation to MA residents in this post. Are we unbanned? 😉
  8. I've been watching their website, this changed this afternoon: Current Restrictions at Odiorne Point: Maintain social distancing of at least 6 feet. Seacoast Science Center is closed due to COVID-19 Odiorne Point's recreational areas and hiking trails are open. Playgrounds and indoor facilities are closed. The parking area at the Odiorne Point State Park is open and operating at 50 percent capapcity. the Boat Baunch is currently open. Please do not park along Rte 1A. Sounds like we can baunch again there!
  9. Please download the attached waiver form, fill and sign with your information and email or pm back to me by Monday morning. I will combine forms into a float plan. 616 Portsmouth NSPNWaiver.pdf
  10. This trip is a go, we have two so far and four spots remaining.
  11. This trip will be on Tuesday and we will have lunch but it will not be a "Tuesday Lunch Paddle". All efforts will be made to observe Covid protocols. If you're coming from out of state please make your own judgement regarding meeting NH guidelines. Please be prepared to transport and load your boat unassisted. Launch from Goat Island at 10. 43°04'16.5"N 70°44'06.2"W Paddle out through Little Harbor and decide at Jaffrey Point whether to island hop or head down to Wallis Sands. Out of respect for limited parking I think we should limit this trip to 6. Predicted Conditions: air high 60's, water mid 50's, light onshore wind. 2'swells on 8'. LT at Jaffrey Point 2:24 pm. If there is interest I will post a method for doing a float plan/waiver here.
  12. Joe, I wasn't taking it personally, just speaking up for my fellow NHers. I'm admittedly still a little leery about travelling south but if I'm going to do it, I would do it to paddle.
  13. I'd like to clarify the limitation to MA paddlers. What exactly is the current MA policy? I'm starting to feel like a pariah with you guys all paddling up here, I think given the statistics, NH has a lot more to be concerned about than MA...
  14. I will keep checking the website and post here.
  15. https://www.nhstateparks.org/visit/state-parks/odiorne-point-state-park As of this eveniing: Current Restrictions at Odiorne Point: In Response to COVID-19, Odiorne Point is closed to groups over five (5) people, with the exception of children under 12 with their parents.
