Whitewater Memorial Day Weekend

Whitewater Memorial Day Weekend

If you ever wanted to go a little further in pursuit of quality whitewater, now is your chance.  On Memorial Day Weekend (May 27-30) we’ll be leaving the Lansing Area on Friday night after work in quest of whitewater, and returning on Monday night. The trip will go wherever the water is running, perhaps to Wisconsin, perhaps to the Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, or North Carolina.  We’ll be seeking out Class II-III whitewater, so you should have some whitewater skills and experience. 

Participants are expected to provide all of their own gear which includes but is not limited to: a whitewater boat with adequate flotation, life jacket, helmet, paddle, spray skirt for kayaks, wet or dry suit for the cold water we’ll encounter, and river safety knowledge.  The water will be cold and the air may be cold too, so cold temperature preparedness is essential.

We’ll be car-camping on this trip, and eating some meals in camp and some meals in restaurants.
