Does anyone have suggestions on dates? Im thinking may might work out good so its not to crowded out there?
I'm also interested in this trip. Sounds amazing. And the area is great; my grandparents have a place in Porter.
Interested if you're ok with having a canoe along. Also would have an additional seat for someone if they'd like.
Just for reference on the mileage, a buddy and I did 50 miles (of river) on the Connecticut a couple seasons ago in less that two days of paddling. This was two of us in a heavily laden, 14' canoe during fairly low water in September. Obviously a different river, but I would think 19 miles in two days would leave plenty of time for being at camp and checking out some of the ponds etc. around there.
Would he glad to have u dingbat. Anyone is welcome, kayak or canoe.
Also as I stated before if anyone needs a kayak or even a canoe I can rent them on base for the weekend for really cheap. Just let me know and we can work something out.
Also found this little mileage image for the area. If everyone wants to do more mileage then thats fine too.
If we start fairly early Saturday we could get a good bit in.
I like the 19 mile distance. Especially with the way that section of river loops back on it's self. Makes logistics a lot easier if someone gets soaked/cold and needs to pull out. I was setting a dock in the Connecticut today and it was downright icy. Hurt to have hands in water more that a few moments. Rivers will be cold for a while yet. Also, leaves more time for having fun as opposed to grinding away to tick off miles.
I have a second canoe that I could get on water if someone from this way had a way to transport it. It has a little transom so it's not the slipperiest boat on the water but isn't as slow as a flat bottom. Would need paddles.

This sounds like a fun trip! I'm going to be in New England that week but I'll be at my son's college graduation in Boston that weekend.
