    2 day trip
    3 night camp
    not a booze cruise
    no bumper boats
    must have your own yak - 12' preferred
    camping in state parks
    limited space available
    sharing tents and necessities
    can't drop out
    must be able to kayak all day and into the night for the entire weekend
    if you haven't camped at one of the local meets with us - I'm sorry, but this trip isn't for you...keeping this one to people we all know locally

    Dates: End of August or early September depending on the other guys I know and are planning it with.

    PM me if interested, but if we get a ton of people I apologize ahead of time this will be a SMALL group and all may not be able to make it. The more people the more logistical issues we just don't want to have to worry about.

    That's all up to you buddy.

    Figure we hit the water Friday night and get out Sunday. You would need to store (2) caches of soda at (2) camps and have one nights packed with you. So far there is no way to drop off 2 cars at separate camps sites + leave 1 at the drop off and 1 at the destination spread out across NJ. This is why I don't plan on doing much more then eating some tomatoes and maybe a gulp or two of some high test soda out of my flask.

    Like I said this won't be people staying up until 2am partying. More of a nerdy nature man in the woods type thing. Consider it a hiking trip but in water.

    Ill be researching the camp spots and have them figured out by the end of next week. Ill PM you the locations.

    So far if you go we only need one more person to make it an even 4 which is perfect for logistics and driving.

    You can always tow my 9' kayak behind you...hahaha

    Mullica from around Atsion to the shore. So far it seems to be impossible to do the whole trip in 2 days. I know I could, but I'm not so sure about the others in smaller/wider yaks. Looks like we would need to do about 20-30 miles per day. I know my arms are ready :D
