Canvas Classified / Hobie Mirage Oasis Tandem Kayak $1999
« on: July 19, 2017, 09:25:21 AM »
Dad has decided to sell the big kayak. It's only been used a few times. It has just about all the bells and whistles that were available for it.

Cool feature is you don't have to paddle once you are deep enough, you can pedal with your feet!

The details are in the Craigslist ad. Thanks for looking!

So what is the charge for this wonderful picnic for my tastebuds? And let us know if we should bring something.

Welcome from Pennsylvania! I got a chuckle out of both of your posts. We've all been there and thought that. You just had the nerve to put it in type  ;D

You will eventually not the a noobie and be able to offer advice to others. Have fun and keep your sense of humor.

I don't think we will have the prep and cook time available since we are tubing on Saturday. I think we are doing meatballs so I can use the crock pot and not have to worry about timing so much.

Are you all registered as a team?  If you are, what is the name of the team?

Pass on Left

Here is the direct link to the Team's MS page.

If you are wanting to donate, please pick a rider that doesn't have their $300 yet. Better yet, check with Mike or Diane Baird (mbaird on this forum). I know their recent fundraiser is not on the web totals yet. Each rider has to have $300 to ride.

Also, some may be getting corporate sponsors from their employers but haven't gotten the funds yet so it's not logged either.

I think a majority of the team is NOT camping because of the exertion it takes for the ride. I didn't want you to be surprised that there aren't many actually camping for this event.

Found more tubing info, an actual brochure on the Yellow Breeches Waterway.

1.5 miles, 3.0 miles, and farther. See the facebook page for more details from people that float and kayak it all the time.

I'm thinking 1.5 to start for me. I've never floated this area before. But I know lots of people that do. Important to carry out all trash, don't drive after drinking (PD and DCNR police the lots at the ends), and don't drink while on Messiah College property (or be obnoxious/disrespectful while on their property, which is start point parking lot).

If the weather and water level play nice, would anyone like to tube (maybe kayak too) on the Yellow Breaches Creek? You need to bring your own tubes. We would need to park some vehicles at the pick up point and some at the drop off point (Messiah College) and shuttle the rest. Would be a fun and free (except cost of tubes, unless you can borrow one/some).

We are bringing along Dutch Blitz, Big Boggle, Racko and Uno. Games are always fun to have.

Kayaking / Re: Kayak J hooks....are they needed?
« on: June 11, 2017, 12:11:45 PM »
I bought J cradles from amazon, 2 sets for $99. I couldn't get two kayaks to stay on top of my SUV load bars and be comfortable going very far like that. They work great. I do have bow lines too, but they are really not necessary for short/local trips as I strap the kayaks to the cradles securely. I do use them when transporting long distances. The straps for the bow lines fold down under the hood and are not visible when not in use.

When in doubt, you can put them in your camper. They should fit. Hmm... might be interesting to watch you pack up  ;D

Joe, did you check for 2018? Our school doesn't have the 2018-2019 calendar out yet. Only 2017 - 2018. Jenn/Butch, what about you?
