Flat water, relaxed pace, 5-6 miles per day. Boat rentals and paddling instruction available on request.
Overnight paddle-camping trip on flat to moving water of the Connecticut River in Massachusetts. Suitable for first-time paddle-campers, but some paddling and camping experience expected. Relaxed pace at 5 miles first day and 10 miles second day, but optional early take-out available second day. Boat rentals and paddling instruction from ACA instructor Bonna Wieler of Bold Paths (www.boldpaths.com) available on request.
Your camping gear needs to fit inside your boat and be protected with drybags. Bring lunch and snacks for two days, and your drinking water for 2 days. Water is not available at the campsite. We will prepare community meals for breakfast and dinner. Some camping gear is available if you ask. We have a shelter and tentsites reserved – pitch your tent or sleep in the shelter. Register early to reserve your spot on this trip.
The price, TBD, will be less than $50 for food and camping. Any equipment rented from Bold Paths is extra. When you register, let us know if you will need to rent a kayak ($35/day) or camping gear (sleeping bag ($5), pad, tent ($), groundcloth) from Bonna at Bold Paths <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Also give us your preference for private tent site or sleeping in the shelter.
