As I recall, the last time we did this a few paddlers went swimming! But I'm up for a repeat!
That was a fun paddle|

We had 14 with 6 going in the drink. I think you need to get String to do that paddle again in shorts and t shirt. I don't think he has been a ice cube since. I do miss the north fork.

As I recall, When Jack & Nanci and Rusty did the Blackwater River Race in the spring, they said it was the worst obstacle course of deadfall they'd ever paddled!
IF this happens, let's do a section we |

Works for me|

If we do it sat it makes getting down and back less problematical.
Saturday is better than Tuesday|
Posted by: RedCrossRandy on Dec-10-12 9:13 AM (EST)

I was thinking about camping somewhere Friday and Saturday night.
So what's the particulars?|
Posted by: RedCrossRandy on Dec-18-12 3:54 PM (EST)
Mars Oldfield is a ramp 16 miles |
Posted by: string on Dec-18-12 6:38 PM (EST)
below Colleton. Better for a short winter day.
Posted by: paddler098 on Dec-19-12 8:17 PM (EST)

Interested! From Columbia SC|
Posted by: yatipope on Dec-21-12 3:08 PM (EST)
I am a pretty avid paddler and would like to join. I would be paddling my Wenonah Argosy and have a Dodge Minivan with extra capacity for shuttle purposes (extra canoe and persons)! I have paddled for 20 years all over America, Alaska and Canada and would like to meet some other paddlers! Paddled the North Edisto above Orangeburg and really like it! Brant Pope
Brant , we look forward to meeting you.|

exact put in?|

Lets firm up where we are meetingso those of us from
Posted by: yatipope on Dec-22-12 6:25 AM (EST)
I know its a week away but both TWC and MSN Weather predict a GOOD chance of rain (50-60%)on the 29th. Weather Channel says a high of 59 which is great,..but MSN weather says high of 46! ugly. Lets hope TWC gets the temp right and we are the dry 50%!
Put in is at the ramp at Canadys,|
Posted by: string on Dec-22-12 11:33 AM (EST)
Do we want an alternate date in case?|
Posted by: string on Dec-23-12 3:16 PM (EST)
After all, Baldpaddler started this as a 'new Years paddle".
Posted by: baldpaddler on Dec-24-12 5:58 AM (EST)
wantto drive 200 miles to paddle by myself because everyone backed out cause of rain... String lets lineup an alternative date. And percentage. You
Colleton to Givhans long days paddle?|
Posted by: yatipope on Dec-24-12 3:02 AM (EST)
Just looking at a map, it looks like about 18 river miles from the Canady/Colleton put-in to the access at Givhans State Park. Doesn't that seem a little ambitious for a day-trip during the shortest (almost) day of the year? Surely I am mistaken and there is an intermediate take-out,.....RIGHT?
That is why I suggested Colleton to |
Posted by: string on Dec-24-12 12:12 PM (EST)
Sounds Great |
Posted by: yatipope on Dec-24-12 10:28 PM (EST)
Yeah the water levels are coming up nicely just in time! That Mars Old Field takeout certainly makes the trip more doable. Thanks String. Oh BTW just a check of TWC website for our forecast sure does make New Years Eve look like a winner for a backup paddle date! 58 degrees and Sunny
Way too cold up there !|
Posted by: JackL on Dec-25-12 10:58 AM (EST)
I think all you hard core/soft core and in between core paddlers should go steal a Tijuana bus- put all your boats on/in it, and come down here to paradise for a day or two or three.
The rain chance is now 80%.|
