Most of these trips are Class I, however; in the past we have done up to Class IV rivers on the O.N. schedule like the Nolichucky, BSF and San Juan in UT.  Anyone wanting to lead ANY class river is welcome to add it to our schedule as long as you know and have paddled that river before, and are capable of leading it safely. Leaders can judge who goes on their trip or not depending on water levels, paddling abilities and safety considerations.  As always, all food, water and shelter must fit in your boat if there is no access to the camping spot by car.

  • December 27-January 1  Florida Flat water
    Leader Pat Carver patcarver1055@yahoo.com
    Pat would like everyone to send in at least 2 FL river names that you would like to paddle the most this year.  She will compile a FL state map with the areas of interest to see where the most people want to go. Campgrounds within 30 minute drives of the areas are preferred.  So far we have had 2 suggestions:
    Falling Water State Park area in northern FL. near the Econfina River
    2. DeSoto State Park area near St. Pete/Tampa
    .  ‘Nuff said.
