THE YAKIMA RIVER FLOAT TRIP: Mary and I hoped that 12-15 women would sign up. We have 39!!!! This will be a grand adventure through the Yakima Canyon on of course, the Yakima River. We will leave the camp about 9 am, meet with the rafts and be on the river by 11 It will be hot and sunny on the river, so bring water, a hat, long sleeved shirts/pants if you burn. Wear sunscreen and your bathing suit. We can float in the river as we float down the river - life jackets on or just enjoy being in the raft.. It is highly recommended that you leave all valuables including non-waterproof items like cameras at home. Waterproof cameras recommended. Lunch will be provided at a picnic area at the end of the trip about 2 pm. You may want to bring a morning snack.
We are working on the transportation logistics. Since there are so many of us on this float, we will need to provide our own transportation. In brainstorming we wondered if 3-4 motorhomes could transport all of us to the starting/put in point.
Alpine Adventures will supply a van which will carry our dry clothes, etc. to the end point where we will have the picnic. Those drivers will get a ride back to the staring point to get their vehicles. Hopefully the drivers will then pick up the rest of us. Being a driver will not prevent you from going on the float trip!
IMPORTANT: Cascadia is fronting your balance of $35 for this trip. Alpine Adventures has requested full payment before we get to the river. Please come prepared with cash or check to pay your balance on Friday evening. Credit cards cannot be accepted.
Miscellaneous notes: Cheryl and Barb are on the raft trip, so the ‘bites and defib update presentations are cancelled.
If you are staying at the campground - would you consider keeping an eye on dogs/cats left at home??
Saturday evening is left unscheduled. Games of course are always available.
