April 16 & 17th Friday launch off Shell Island Road 9AM
Call for time to launch with Saturday's late launch group. It would not be much of a camp trip without your Kayak Paddle: It's kind of
obvious, I know
Spare Paddle: This is purely you preference, but you never know.
Water Proof or throw away Camera
PFD: Lifejackets are needed for everyone in your party.
GPS: Know where you are, how far you've gone, and how to get to safety at all
times. GPS nice Not necessary

I never go out in my kayak without my VHF Radio!
For those who have radios keep them to
channel 69 to talk to other group members.



Tent: Be sure it packs down to a manageable size to fit in your kayak.
Sleeping bag: The sleeping bag should be chosen based on the weather
conditions. SOCKS r nice @ night
Sleeping Pad: Bring a sleeping pad A MUST. I purchased one at Saltwater
sports I had to blow it up but it is GREAT to carry when kayaking and room is an
issue
Pillow: Bring a camp pillow purely for comfort.
Camp Chair: Camp chairs are a necessity but hammock is not but nice.
Flashlight: A headlamp is preferable to a flashlight.
Multipurpose Knife with tools: never go camping without one.
Matches: Waterproof matches can be found any place camping gear is sold.
Lighter: Bring a lighter in addition to matches- one might fail.

trash. ( A MUST) LEAVE NO TRACE
