Florida Week of Rivers Trip
March 11 - March 16
River Classification: A – I
Chris Holladay is putting together a “week of rivers” type trip to Florida in March. Any and all are welcome to join the trip. The itinerary of rivers is still being researched but the dates have been set. Nadine and Chris plan to leave Central PA on the morning of March 10 and arrive in FLA on the afternoon / evening of 11 March. They plan to tent camp at state parks and private campgrounds near the rivers and will probably stay at the same campground for a couple of nights and then move to a different area. The planned rivers will be suitable for rec kayaks and canoes. Although the rivers will not be difficult some of the trips may involve paddling 15 or more miles in single day. Right now Chris is looking at rivers with clear water springs where we might see manatees. They may get into some estuary, marsh, and mangrove areas too. If you have an idea for a river to paddle let Chris know and he will see about working it into the trip. They plan to paddle on 5 days and drive back north on Friday the 17th, arriving in central Pa on the 18th.
All of this is very flexible. If you want to leave on Saturday instead of Friday, or even later, you can join them where ever they happen to be when you arrive. If you can’t stay for the full time you can leave early as well.
Right now the trip includes Chris, Nadine, Russ, John Raudenbush, and Vern. Join them, the more the merrier. Reply using Chris’ email if you want to join the trip.
