I'll take that extra paddling jacket if it's available. I'm a large-ish medium.

We sure are. We'll be leaving Deep Cove at 9:30AM at the very latest so you'll need to arrive a bit earlier to pack your gear (and say hello to everyone).

It's a medium so I'll bring it along for you - hopefully it will fit.

It's now confirmed that WCoaster will be going with me. I hope that Curious George will be able to make the trip.

 

Hey, Dagg and Perigrine007 (and anyone else who's coming), do you guys want to go for breakfast before we go? I just called Deep Cove Kayak and they told me that there's a restaurant (called Honey's or something like that) on the main street in Deep Cove that is open early for breakfast.

 

I'll give a knock on your car at 7:00 or so, when we arrive.

Given all the paddling you've done in the Arm, I'm surprised you haven't heard of Honey's. They're famous and their food is great. Count me in. What time?

Well, that's because I'm always paddling around the arm rather than spending my time sitting in restaurants. icon_wink.gif

 

How about we meet at Honeys around 7:30?

 

This will give the guys who are sleeping in their cars a bit of time to wake up and clear the sand out of their eyes.

Being an ex-Deep Cover (actually, I graduated from Windsor, a slightly better high school just down the Parkway icon_wink.gif ), Honey's will be a great place to meet for breakfast.

 

Count me in.

I've never been there but the fellow at Deep Cove Kayak mentioned something about donuts so it could very well be.

Fires are not permitted at Granite Falls at any time. My guess is that briquettes are OK as they are allowed at other parks where open fires are not allowed.

 

Wonder if we'll run into any pirates up there?

Dragged my boat out of the barn last night for the first time in two years for a pre-trip inspection. Good thing I did. I'm off right now to MEC and/or Ecomarine to get some new parts for the boat and, hopefully, a new spring clip for my favorite paddle. icon_frown.gif Why do they build kayaks and paddles with parts that rust? I guess I didn't do a very good job of rinsing off my toys last time I used the boat. icon_wink.gif

So, the more I frantically tear apart my storage, the less camping gear I appear to have (lent out, never returned, lost, etc). The capper was when I discovered that my most excellent sleeping bag that I have used for years has a ruined zipper and won't close.

 

So, I am now begging gear from friends so I am not caught huddled in the bottom of my kayak, covered in moss to preserve body heat.

 

I'm heading off to MEC today for some required items, but might I ask: is anyone bringing a stove that I can borrow?

Arrr Dagg, it is true that today is talk like a pirate day, will ye be joinin the fun matey?

 

MrPeabody, hope all works out with your gear.

 

There are two of us bringing Coleman stoves that I know of which should be enough for all of 8 (or 9) of us. Dagg asked about briquetes but I don't know if he's bringing a barbeque or not. Dagg?

 

It might be a good idea to go back to page one of this thread and take a look through the list that I made up.

 

I'm pumped guys and looking so much forward to this -- see you tomorrow morning at Honey's.

I think we should be ok stove wise. I will bring my two burner and my Primus (a little flakey at times) And P007 is bringing his one burner as well. I was thinking of briquettes for marshmallow shooters..will see how much room i have icon_biggrin.gif

 

oops i forgot to add ARRRRR

Mr. Peabody, I feel your pain. As Jomarac mentioned, I'm bringing an extra 2-burner stove and a large tarp that I'm hoping Jomarac can fit into his K2 barge as my bulkheads won't accomodate them. I am also bringing my one-burner backpacking stove and a single-use disposable BBQ for cooking my steak.

 

I went to MEC last night to get a replacement part for my spare paddle (the metal spring clip that hold the two halves of the shaft together) but was unsuccessful. By the time I got to Ecomarine they were closed so I have to try again after work today. icon_mad.gif

 

To make matters worse, I pulled my ancient mummy bag and my rarely-used one-man tent out of storage last night to find the bag won't loft, even after tumble drying, and the waterproofing on my tent fly has turned to some sort of sticky goo. icon_mad.gificon_mad.gif So I have to hit MEC again to get a new sleeping bag and rent a tent. My other tent is a 5-person dome. This trip is starting to get expensive.

 

As far as spare gear, I have 2 spare paddle jackets, one of which is spoken for, an extra wetsuit (medium-large) and an extra PFD and possibly a couple of extra dry-bags. I will bring them along in case someone wants to use them.

Ack! The buddy I was counting on has a b'day party that his wife is requiring him to be at. So My options are Find a paddiling partner. or rent a single kyack. I'm to old and out of shape to paddle that old canoe all the way by myself. That said If I use the canoe, gear storage is no problem.

 

Whats the cost of a single? where is the best place to rent one? Anyone want to paddle a canoe with me? Got a single for sale cheep? icon_wink.gif

Arrr!!! Gorak me friend, 'ow big do ye thinks me ship is matey? She be a big one fer sure, but takin the kitchen sink is outta the question. Me already gots Daggs stove, as well as me own -- I think we're goin te be OK with the stoves that we 'ave. Maybe ye should leave yer stove at 'ome (or brings it and if it's not needed ye could leaves it is yer auto). As fer as the tarp goes, bring it along -- we can straps it to the deck if we be needin to.

 

Gorak, ay've gots an extra two man tent that might work fer ye. It's a bit old, but it'll keep the skeeters from findin yer blood. Me thinks it's OK in the rain, but we could throw a tarp over it if the skys begins te fall upon us.

 

Aye, good to sees ye Plotter, and we hopes te sees ye in time fer some grub before we set sail.

 

Arrrr!!!

Pat, you might just be in luck... due to my extreme bad luck.

 

I have been trying to hold off a cold from overtaking me the last couple of days, mainly because I am looking forward to this trip *a lot*. But today, simply put, I feel like absolute crap.

 

I am worried that if I get out on the water tomorrow, with my glands this large, they'll get in the way of my paddling.

 

So... Deep Cove is holding a single Kayak for me (that they don't want to cancel because of the 48 hour notice requirement)... so would you want to take over my rental?

Arrr, Billy. Ever been treasure hunting up the arm?

 

I be leavin' the cooker at 'ome an' relyin' on me wee single-burner fer preppin me vittles. I be takin' ye up on yer offer of the tent. The oracles be seein' fair skies for the voyage.

 

Been meenin' ta ask ye - how many scurvy cutthroats be totin' FRS's?

I could be into that... Call me 604-614-2704. Soonest. I'm going to go pick up the canoe but I'd rather not paddle it by myself.

 

Oh and I have an FSR and might have a spare or 2 if needed. anyone have a list of the caches we need to have in our gps's?

Okay, well, Pat has been kind enough to agree to take my Kayak rental (saving both his arse and mine in the process).

 

I'm going to come down to Honey's anyway just so I can see all your faces and get some context for who I see on these boards and log books all the time.

 

See y'all tomorrow AM at 7
