    VA Luray, Shenandoah River Float/hang

    Ok I'm going to try to set up a hang here in the great state of Virginia. The hang will be on the South Fork of the Shenandoah River in Luray. If interested you will need a canoe or kayak. The trip would just be two days one night a Saturday and Sunday. I have not decided on a date yet but would be with in the next month. The trip would be for anyone but be advised all float trips include fishing and beer (with in moderation LOL). Camping would be wilderness style not a campground you will need everything food water shelter and so on. There are two National Forest designated camp areas but the 8 mile stretch is all National Forest and we could camp any where. I'm still working out the bugs but would like to see if there is any interest.

    Was up in Fort Valley last weekend, beautiful country. Be sure to keep a check on the ticks. Had 1 crawler and 1 sucker and never got too far into the brush.
    Most of us end up poorer here but richer for being here. Olddog, Fulltime hammocker, 365 nights a year.

    I hope it becomes a yearly event.....

    so I can attend next year. This area is the canoe capitol of America. I've done the AT through this area and noted then how much I'd like to paddle it.
    Cant this year but next year would put it on the calendar in blood

    There are a bunch of canoe outfitters in that area. I am sure one would rent you a canoe.

    Smile Update

    Thinking of Medium day on Saturday and short day on Sunday. Put in at #8 Bealer's Ferry, camp just past#13 at High Cliff Canoe Camp and take out at #16 Seaksford. It will not be the longest trip, just laid back relaxing. No rapids AKA Compton! Lets say meet at #8 at 10:00 am Saturday Sept 15 after shuttling should be on the river by 11:00. If this sounds good let me know plenty of time to tweak things.
