probably be very low, and might have to exit boat and pull occasionally in low water.

rental, $35.00 transportation fee if bringing your own kayak (NO tax apparently)

gloves (optional), water tight bag, light lunch and water or juice (no glass bottles), towel
and change of clothes (leave in your car) for afterwards.

Leave message with name and number in your party.

Come out and enjoy a great day paddling on the Wading River! Back to the central Pine
Barrens up in Chatsworth, NJ
The only drawback of THIS trip is that we need transport both to and from start/end, and
also no bar/restaurant at finish – but, I have bar/restaurant covered: the Sweetwater
Marina / Riverdeck restaurant – very cool place 11.3 miles southwest of Mick’s, right on
the Mighty Mullica River!
Since I cannot get a group discount (I asked, but was politely told no), how we all pay
this time will be different too.  I of course need a head count, so please sign in with me
when you arrive on my blue truck’s lowered tailgate, as always.
New Payment for this trip:
NO pre-payment. Pay the day of the trip. Pay Steve directly- CASH ONLY.
You will also have to sign a waiver when you pay for your kayak. Steve will have them.
It is never “too late to sign up”, but please either call or email me so that I can add you
to the head count.  Also, the trip does not sell out.  There is no maximum number of
boats. 
Please do not call me the morning of the trip and ask about river conditions or weather. 
I don’t know any more than you.  If you are on the fence about coming, I cannot help
you – decide for yourself.  We have run before and occasionally, gotten poured on mid-
trip, so it can happen, but hopefully does not.  We ALWAYS have fun!
Children (accompanied by an adult) are welcome.  All rented boats will get a life
preserver vest(s), although the depth of the river is usually only 3-4 feet in most areas.
