    Does anyone know anything about the kayak rentals? Are they located right at the put-in and is there any need to reserve ahead? Any idea of the fees?

    I have a kayak but frankly since i got the Acadia I'm not tall enough to load it. And i hesitate to buy one of those expensive hydraulic carriers if i might be going to a truck as my TV within the next year or two. Plus the kids have outgrown their kayaks anyhow so I'll need a rental resource if i can get them off their electronics!

    Ok so I’m sitting at The KOA in Hershey and the WiFi is not good enough for me to read everything I’ve missed so if I repeat I apologize. Char and I will be coming in Wednesday Morning. I will bring a nice roll of Pork Roll for the Breakfast thing. I may or may not make chili. I will make chicken fajita egg rolls for the dinner. And I will definitely taste beer on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday well you get the picture. As far as the official tasting I will make sure I do a lot of research and only bring the finest.

    There is a place on Route 100 that rents them called Equipe Sport. You have to haul it wherever you go though. I'm actually considering getting one or two inflatable ones for Jake and myself since we don't do this very often.

    Thanks Stef. Clearly I'll need to think this through as it seems like transport will be an issue no matter what. :( Maybe I'll have to look into inflatables although I know those are slower and more work than regular hard sided ones. I'm slow and tired enough as it is! I saw really cool collapsible hard side ones at REI but we're talking thousands of $$$. Aahhhhh wouldn't it be nice to have unlimited play money!

    I totally get that. For the once or twice that I go out and kayak, I'm willing to do a little more work I think. And the storage situation for us, works better to have inflatables. They have them relatively inexpensive on Amazon so I might be willing to try it out and not feel like it's draining the bank too badly if it doesn't turn out to work well.

    I have room in my truck for your rental if your worried about transporting it. Rental place is only a few minutes to the pond.

    Wow, thank you so much Chris, I really appreciate that. I will likely take you up on that for at least two, possibly three kayaks.

    No problem, its right at the bottom of the hill. Just make sure you get matching sets of paddles, Stef got 2 different halves of paddles last year.

    We just got back from Winhall Brook after a great weekend of camping. We took a hour long trip north up to Long Trail Brewery for a great lunch and beer outside on the patio. Nice place and a gorgeous ride up. Leaves have a hint of change in them

    Is that a stack of bottles at the brewery or the beer you brought back from the brewery? [LOL]

    Got a new seat for my kayak, now I just have to install it.

    Looks like this hurricane will be turning north and running through PA and up through New England over the next few days. Hopefully all it's punch will be gone by then.

    Sharon dropped by my place today, so we pulled out the map to look over our route. I’m picking her up at 8am Monday. We’re stopping overnight near Lowville NY, then on to Winhall Brook Tuesday morning. Should be in Hybrid Hollow by mid afternoon. We’re debating about putting her double kayak rack on my my car, or whether she’ll rent in VT again. If Sharon doesn’t bring her kayak, does someone have room in their truck for Sharon’s rental?
