OK, just let me know!

I haven't cartopped the big red Outback before, but I got all the stuff in order to be able to do it, so it should be theoretically possible, if not in practice!

great offer and it looks really cool - just not sure I will be up to it. We'll have to wait until it gets closer and play it by ear.

Thanks again!

Suppose I brought my Hobie Outback which has pedals? You'd need a hand to move the rudder lever, but it would be pretty minimal effort...

For me - I think it is going to be out for this time. I am having surgery on my finger on the 13th and don't know what I will be up to/allowed to do for a few weeks.

Since we're striking out on the 30th so far...how about the 23rd?

Would really like to see if we can gather a number of us Binghamton folks together...?

Would that work for some folks? Once I settle on a date I'd like to send an e-mail out to the entire Team.

The weather miraculously cleared...we had a WONDERFUL time!

Thx so much for the invite and posting the pics so quickly!

Even including an awesome, fun little video! :-)

Now all of us Binghamton folks: We've just GOT to return the favor and set up another kayaking date for the end of August...say Sunday the 30th? At Dorchester? And how about making it a "pot-luck" and bringing a dish/snacks/whathaveyou to share with others?

It's a date! Dorchester charges $7 an hour to rent kayaks.

And hey, my arms are FEELING it tonight...they did a super job of getting me through the water today! :-)

Great Find, Kobe!

The rates are similar to Ithaca's...which are $20 for 2 hours, $30 for 4 hours.

How about aiming for a kayak get-together @ Dorchester later August...?

Perhaps Sunday the 23rd or 30th...?

What do folks think?

Trying again...

In case this doesn't work, go to the SparkTeam's page and click on the "How about kayaking on Sunday, August 2?" link.

teams.sparkpeople.com/fingerlakes

From her post: "We can meet at the rental shop on the Cayuga lake inlet around 1 pm."

Puddledockers shop is at 704 1/2 West Buffalo St., Ithaca, NY Phone: 607.273.0096 locally
888.273.0096 Toll free

Hope this helps...looks like you might join in...?

How about anyone else...?

GL on mending for your SPIEDIE RUN (LOL!) Kobe! :-)

Hey, ORIGAMIFREAK posted a really helpful tutorial on kayaking at this url:

www.kayakpaddling.net/

Very clear and descriptive pictorial lesson on kayaking!

So hey folks...anyone else up for joining in the fun???

I'm definitely IN for it and will be calling to secure my rental.

And when might we plan for our OWN Broome County kayaking event up at Dorchester? (have to remember to call and be sure they have rentals and see how much they are...)

I would call to make sure - I am just going on what my husband said and I am not always sure he knows what he is talking about. ha ha He may be just assuming but I thought he said he asked someone.

Didn't run the 5k this morning - have sore leg/ankle that I can't figure out and I want to run the spiedie fest next week so sat this one out

My dad wants to kayak so badly. I knew that Greenwood had Kayak rentals but didn't know Dorchester did. That would be so much nicer to kayak on.

Hello - hello!

emoticon emoticon ha ha thanks BUT I am SO NOT a super sparkin' runner but I couldn't find the sign up for the 5 K "shuffler".. or maybe "waddler"!!

Nice pic's of Dorchester Park - I took some while we were there I should post them too. My husband and I want to do the triathlon next year but neither of us can really swim at this point but never say never. This year was only the 4th year and I don't thnk they do a good enough job advertising it - I bet they would get a lot more participants if people knew about it.


Yes I believe dorchester does the kayak rentals - ha ha maybe I could do the swim part in one of those!

Hey Kobe...great to hear from you...!

Yeah, the Spiedie Fest is happening, but I figure I've done it before and there REALLY isn't much going on (um, that is, if you're not a SUPER SPARKING RUNNER like YOU...! :-) ) that I can't pass up for such an opportunity!

Yes, you are SO RIGHT about Dorchester! Nicely paved path up there...I did a blog about it a while back and posted some pics of the new path:

ry_enlarge.asp?id=2422801


Hope you have a SPARKTASTIC run Kobe! :-)

Don

ps...haven't checked it out yet, but do they have kayak rentals @ Dorchester? Maybe we can do it again sometime there before the end of the season...?

That is the same weekend as the Spiedie Fest - I'll be doing the 5K on Sunday morning and milling about for the afternoon. I have always wanted to try it - my husband and I are going to go up to Whitney Point / Dorcester sometime.

BTW, FYI we were talking about this before and we were up there on the 11th for the Triathlon and there is a very nice paved path that goes all the way from the park up around and across the front of the dam over to the back side behind the high school. You can park either in the park or turn up by the high school and park out that road. we walked the paved path out and crossed up to the top of the dam and walked that back. Great views very nice and quiet walk

Can't say 100% as yet, but surely plan to make every effort to!

Tomorrow is my 1st venture kayaking out on my aunt's lake...am SO looking forward to it! If I get bitten *badly* by this kayaking bug, you can be sure I'll be ready for MORE by Aug. 2nd! It's great that it's a Sun. as I won't have any conflicts!

That looks like fun! Do you plan on going ?

If hunger is not the problem, then eating is not the solution.

You shall not try to relive yesterday for good or ill, it is forever gone. Concentrate on what is happening in your life and be happy now!

The following is an open invitation (from ORIGAMIFREAK www.sparkpeople.com/mypage.asp?id=OR
IG
AMIFREAK
) for us Binghamton SparkPeople members to join with the Ithaca members in a fun-filled KAYAKING expedition Sunday, August 2nd!

Woo HOO! :-)
----------

Hey there,

I'm putting an invitation out there for kayaking in Ithaca on Sunday afternoon, August 2.

There's a rental shop at the Cayuga lake inlet, and the recommend people reserve boats ahead of time.

Here's a link to the thread on our site, which includes a link to the shop website:

www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messagebo
ard_thread.asp?board=0x20822x27144862


If you or anyone else from B'ton wants to join us, you'll be more than welcome!

The rental shop is right next to the water so there's no transporting at all.

www.puddledockers.com/v/vspfiles/Kay
ak
_shop/default.html


We'll meet at 1pm. That should give me (and everyone else) time to get there after church or whatever else they do Sunday morning (sleeping in?)

Feel free to post it on your message board, if you like!
