    I'm gonna be there, and you can count me in, Cakes, for paddling. I don't have a helmet, but I can use a bike helmet in a pinch, right?

    It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    Formerly known as Acercanto, my trail name is MacGuyver to some, and Pucker Factor to others.

    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness. - Randy Glasbergen

    It will be a pleasure to paddle with you PF! And yes a bike helmet will work for class I.

    Word has it that there is a little known hot spring we can paddle to and then walk in a little ways on this section of river. The fellow that told me about it is hopefully coming with us to show us the way!!!

    Still don't know if I'll be able to make it, being on Mother's day weekend, but if so, I'd love to paddle.
    Have to figure out how to convince my better half that she wants to go hammock camping and paddling on Mother's day.
    Not sure how to accomplish that... yet.

    Smiling Face will attend this hang with Thing1 and me, in her "Egg Roll" (13' Scamp). We rented site #411, the next site toward the bridge from Ed's. There's room for two or three more hammocks, in addition to Thing1 and me.
