James River - Richmond
Join me for an after-work paddle on the “Lower James” through Richmond. I’ll be working closer to Richmond than Cville, so the idea is for y’all to meet me in Richmond at the takeout at 5, and launch before 6 PM.
Since I won’t be departing from Cville, I’ll need at least one driver, ideally with the ability to tote several boats and bodies to ease shuttle. It would be awesome if said driver could pickup and transport all the boats and gear with them from Cville (as slipping out of work early with multiple boats on my vehicle will get me dirty looks from management – which i’m trying to avoid), so y’all are on your own for picking up the gear your need and getting it to Richmond – Signup early so that I can pass a list onto Dave C.
I put 4 PM as the departure time from Cville – be prompt – this is when y’all need to be rolling towards Richmond from Cville by to meet me.
If this presents a huge problem, we could possibly shift it to the right a bit depending on the crew/vehicles available, but the idea is to meet at takeout at 5ish PM to meet others for the super-shuttle.
Trip may be canceled for low interest, or skill level upgraded in unlikely event that the river rises significantly.
Anyone thinking of coming to WOR should strive to get on this trip!
You must have been on multiple river trips, and comfortable paddling in Class II-III rapids.
A combat roll is not required but would help, excessive swim team tryouts will delay arrival at Legends! (in lieu of a combat roll, you could also bring supreme boat control and river reading skills, and a good brace such that you don’t have to roll!)
Bathing Suit, Towel, river is about 75F so whatever layers you think you need, ID for legends brewery if you want to partake in that.
