Paddlers Wanted

The Juniata River Sojourn is a great way to help keep the waters we paddle alive.

Last week Tina, Morgan and I spent a couple days paddling in the Juniata River Sojourn (June 12-19) and had a ball learning about the history of the area, watershed science, art, culture and river conservation projects. If you’re interested in joining us next year, let me know and we’ll get out the info.


Time To Get All Artsy

The Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts brings out the best. This guy was great.

Tina and I love a good arts festival and the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts in State College is one of our favorites for fine arts and crafts, and great musical performances. We’ve made it a regular stop every July and introduced lots of friends to all there is to see and do. The setting is great, people are friendly and the atmosphere is laid back. This year’s festival is July 8-11th.

Weekend Warriors

Anyone up for renting a houseboat and kayaks at Seven Points Marina for a weekend trip?

Spent the weekend with Scoot and Egghead paddling some of our favorite spots in The Alleghenies. We hit Trough Creek – which is a good time after a heavy rain and ended up making basecamp at site 29. From there we hit Whipple Dam State Park and Greenwood Furnace. Then a big day on Raystown Lake where we paddled and fished for small mouth. Didn’t catch much, but had a great time cruising the big lake. Lots of folks do this one by houseboat – could be fun with Tina and Morgan.
