I can't believe it but it's December 1st again... It's almost the beginning of the next paddling season that starts for many of us on Shoshone on New Years Day.
Here is a Facebook page to share stoke, carpools, clothing questions and above all pictures from this year and past years. https://www.facebook.com/ShoshoneNYD
Let's all meet at The Grizzly Creek boat ramp parking area (normal Shosho take out) at high noon January 1st. Get dressed and ready to run shuttle up to the put in ASAP for the first lap.
This is always a great time! A few tips: dress warm, gloves are better than pogies (if you swim) , NRS Toaster Mitts are better than gloves. Beg borrow or steal a dry suite, You can do it in your old leaky splash top but you will have a great time being warm and dry. Skull caps are great but a hood is wonderful. Bring your GoPro! Share rides from the Front Range if you can, that is half the fun getting fired up for the paddling year. Typically its mostly kayakers but there is a growing SUP force (Thanks Hobie), A few river boarders some years (that's crazy, hats off to you), and a rafter always says they are coming and never shows up. Maybe this year we might have the first.
Here is a great video about how much fun we have! Hope to see you there!
