I have posted the locations of the kayaking trips on the spreadsheet. If there is interest for a Monday paddle, I will be glad to participate. There are many locations to choose from but I will be glad to host the posted trips. There are entrance fees at the Juniper Springs and Alexander Springs parks. There is also a shuttle fee at Juniper Springs. Please plan accordingly. No shuttle is needed for Silver Springs. We can set up our own shuttle for Alexander Springs. I will bring a boat trailer and roof rack. With the two of them, I can haul eight boats. I can only carry four people in my car though.
Plan on packing a lunch/snacks and drinking water for each of these trips. Silver Springs is a bit of a drive to the put in. It will most likely be an all day event. There are stores and gas stations along the way. It will be possible to do some resupply on the way back.
Everyone will need to wear a PDF while on the water and have the required safety gear (light, signaling device [whistle] and PFD).
There will be a mandatory safety briefing prior to launch.

I never saw you as a quitter anyway Mark. Glad you are coming my friend!
If anyone else wants to sign up for the paddles but does not have a boat you can PM Timberrr about using ours. We have a tandem we can bring if someone wants to use it (please note: this is the honeymooner kayak. If you are beyond the honeymooner stage, management will not be responsible should attempted drowning of spouse occur). The tandem can also be used as a single.
