Washburn Island June 2-4, 2016 [FULL]

Post by kayakerjnj »

Greetings All,

I'll keep this short and sweet.

We'll have the group site at Washburn this year from Thursday June 2nd through Sunday the 4th with an AM departure.

$10 / per person, non refundable.

Hopefully we'll have a good size group. We can think about a variety of different routes for the weekend that will give us options depending on wind an weather.

As always, we'll hope for the weather to cooperate, and not relocate our tents over the trees :shock:

Hope we can pull together a fun time for all.

Are there any suggestions as to when we might wish to post this on the Trips?

I know Kris Carlson and his dad are looking to join the fun this year so it looks like we have a fun group lining up :shock:

Have a good weekend!

Hi Gang,

We're now at 15 people for the trip.

We're closing this off at this point to keep the site manageable for the Tent City we'll have.

Everyone signed up is reserved.

Since we have 15 people, $8 PP will be the non-refundable ante for the weekend.

Feel free to catch up with me for reimbursement when you see me, it hardly seems worth setting up a Paypal sign up.

Keep your fingers crossed for good weather for the the weekend. The island will be hopping at this time of year.

For all the day trippers that plan to come out to paddle for the day, please try and plan to enjoy the camaraderie of the flock for Washburn PPR :D

Cheers!

Well, the long-range forecast for that weekend looks iffy. I can just feel it.
:P
But I'm going to try making a day of it on Friday. I might even bring out some fresh donuts for breakfast. (Then again, one never knows with my schedule.) Waquoit should be warm as toast by then.

Who is heading down to Washburn on Thursday and at what time? It would be nice to have some company so I don't have to paddle solo. I'll be returning home at some point Saturday. Hope to get a good paddle in Friday...

Mark. I should be able to get to the put-in by 1:30- 2:00 pm. Do you want to try and coordinate our schedules so we can paddle out together?

Any thoughts on firewood? Should I bring a couple of logs from home?

Mark G. and I will be meeting at the put-in around 1:00-1:30 pm Thursday if anyone wants to join us?

Bringing firewood from outside of the island is prohibited. The only option is to scrounge around the campground.

"Friday 60 %. Showers early becoming a steady light rain later in the day. High 71F. Winds SE at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 60%."

So much for my day trip. Who likes to get wet while kayaking!!! :lol:

The forecast I saw for Falmouth said 20% chance of showers. I am planning on going down Thursday morning and returning on Saturday. I might end up with the 1 o'clock group if things do not go well.

Another option is buying firewood in bundles from Island Managers camp site. They sold for $5 a bundle last year.
