Nanty Beginner's Trip, Sun Aug 27 (General Discussion)

by MarkB @, Lenoir City, Wednesday, August 23, 2017, 19:17 (153 days ago)

This weekend's beginner's trip will again take place on the Nantahala River. I will be the trip leader. The plan is to meet at the put-in just above Patton's Run by 11:00 am. Boats will be unloaded and the shuttle will be run. If there are no replies the trip will likely be cancelled.

If the trip is a go, there will be a group meeting at Fort Sanders West at 8:00 AM to carpool to the Nantahala. We usually remain at the NOC after the trip is complete to eat dinner and as such we get back late (typically 9:00 PM).

One note for boaters who have never paddled the Nantahala, the water is cold and unlike the Hiwassee, most of the paddling is in the shade. Regardless of the air temperature, warm clothing is necessary. If you haven't run the Hiwassee or something conquerable already then you probably aren't ready for the Nanty.

If you plan to participate (beginners and experienced boaters) PLEASE communicate your intentions by reply by e-mail ( or by replying to this post.

Hope to see you this weekend.
