Nantahala on Saturday or Sunday August 16/17 (Beginner Trips)

by IanA @, Tuesday, August 05, 2014, 19:33 (1227 days ago)

We are considering a beginners trip to the Nantahala on either Saturday or Sunday 16/17 August. Let me know if you are interested and which day would be best.

I had my eyes on a Pigeon and Upper Green trip that weekend, but honestly not sure my skills are up to it. If I don't go, I'd love to join you on Nanty. Be advised, that my roll is very elusive even on flat water so if that's an issue, let me know. I would need support if I go under. Thanks. Deborah

It seems that, due to a scheduled release on the upper Nantahala, the water levels will be higher on Saturday. Probably not ideal for a beginners trip. So let's plan on Sunday if we get enough interest.

I believe the Upper release is from 4 to 7 pm and as such will have no impact on a Saturday paddle.

I am organizing a Sunday, Aug 17th Nantahala beginners trip for those who cannot make Saturday or just interested in going both days. I will be camping at Turkey Creek campground, (mailto:mike@turkeycreekcampground.com), on Friday night, Saturday, and into Sunday. I'm told there is still plenty of grassy campsites available and you need to make your own reservation. Approximately $20 a night.

Please e-mail me, (PeterF14@comcast.net) if you are interested in going Sunday on the Nantahala or need more information. Pete Feist

The Nantahala trip for Saturday 16 August is on - we have approximately 12 people signed up :-). We will plan to meet at the Patton's run put-in at 10:30 am and run shuttle from there. For those who would like to car pool we will meet at Calhoun's Kingston Pike/Pellissippi at 8 am. Please let me know if you intend to meet there.
For those that have not yet been to the Nanty: you will need to purchase a permit (1$ for the day, 5$ for the season), we can do that when we run shuttle; the water is cold, you should plan on warm clothes and at least a dry top.

If you are intending to come and have not yet told me, either via the forum or via email, please do so. Thank you.

See you Saturday. Ian

Will one or both of those dates for Nanty be "training" trips with support etc and stop to train on features or a "read and run" type for Nanty confident veterans? Have run Nanty. Still need support and no reliable roll....

These are Beginner trips! So yes, you would get all the support and training that the 'experts' are able to provide.

I want to go! I'll see you at the parking lot put in above Patton's at 10:30 Saturday! I am somewhat experienced but still not confident on Nanty and don't have a reliable roll yet.
