pweifan I see that I'm going to have to post this on a few different boards. There just doesn't seem to be enough action here

demonr6 Yeah, I am married and happy. The last thing I want to do is go on a canoe with my wife. Nothing breaks up a happy marriage faster than a canoe trip. Well, maybe not as fast as finding one in bed with three strippers and a midget.

pweifan I'm married and I'm going...

I had talked to them about the water level. It sounds like it's higher this year, but it should be down enough to enjoy everything but still be able to swim. I'm excited about it. I'll be taking my snorkeling gear.

demonr6 There has been a good deal of rain in the last month or so and the levels should be good I would hope? Too bad I am married else I would go..

Excellent trip.

Depends on the water level in the upper reaches where the pic was.
The 6 mile trip is nicer, folks may fry and burn out for the 15 mile trip.
But if you are hard core..........
If the group consensus is to go on the River Rise 6 mile trip, I'd do that instead

bitFUUL I'd be down normally, but the timing is bad. Maybe next time.

Group Canoe outing on Sante Fe River (Gainesville)

Hey guys. I'm looking to get a group together on Saturday 8/4/12 to go canoeing on the Sante Fe River. It's in the greater Gainesville area in High Springs. Here's the itinerary:
  • Meet at 10:30 am at the Sante Fe Canoe Outpost
  • Shove off at 11:00 am
  • Enjoy nature's splendor!
  • Finish up about 4:00 or 5:00 pm (that's the 15.0 mile run with an extra hour to sight-see in the springs)
  • Go eat Dinner (for those interested)

I'm not affiliated with the Sante Fe Canoe Outpost, it's just the one we used when I participated in the 2004 Plant Fest that Tom Barr put together. I really enjoyed this portion of our expeditions. Here's a pic of us out on the water. That's me on the far right

It's $25 a person to rent a canoe. I'm really hoping to get 6-12 people together if there's enough interest. I spoke with them today and they said leaving at 11:00 am would give us enough time to really enjoy the trip. I'd recommend bringing some sunscreen, food/drink in a cooler and any snorkeling/collecting equipment you think would be helpful.

I'll be driving up from the Orlando area that morning, so it may be a possibility to carpool if you're close.

Please post here if you're interested so others are aware of how much interest there is.
