third canoe, no

I will guess you are looking at Tim. He was in a smaller red kayak and sitting within. It was an interesting older boat in that it had very sharp lines and mostly open deck. It did resemble a...

Tusc Trip Report 9-29-19

We had a very pleasant early fall paddle on the Tuscarawas. We had 12 paddlers today... 8 kayaks and 2 tandem canoes. The temp of 70 deg and some overcast clouds made just about perfect paddling...

Wow!

So Rich and Stan had to go after these paddlers to make SURE they stopped at the next takeout?

That's what makes TCT such a great club! Someone is always watching out for the less skilled or...

Just to confuse you

Darla,

Just to keep you confused...

The Shenango River in PA flows into Pymatuning Lake then continues after the dam as Shenango River.

for future reference

As I noted, four of us paddled 3.1 miles upstream. We got stopped by a river-wide tree but I think with a hand saw you could get through some small branches on river left.

I did a quick...

An enjoyable trip

K & C really enjoyed this paddle and were glad Mike had put it on the schedule. Once away from the park it becomes very quiet and gives a nice sense of remoteness. Other than Riverfest I only...

Foam block carriers

I've seen a few canoes with foam gunnel blocks being carried in that manor that looked reasonably secure. That method might depend on how stiff the roof is? I don't recall having seen a kayak...

8:15 am gauge 6.69 and rising

We made a three hour drive home from Toledo last evening. Drove in the storms all the way across Ohio turnpike. Somehow I didn't think we would be paddling today.

Ken + canoe

I plan to come with the classic Grumman canoe.

JP three questions...

Is Bob tough enough to do Jodi's job?
Will Bob expect someone else to give him a canoe ride? AND let him paddle?
