Upper Delaware Paddle and Camp: May 1-3, 2009

On Friday afternoon many current and future ACA paddlers arrived at Lander’s campground in Narrowsburg, New York to set up tents and trailers for the weekend. The forecast for occasional showers all weekend didn't materialize and campers were treated to sunny weather and a nice evening. Some people went out for dinner, others just hung out in camp, and a few people went to a celebration on the Narrowsburg Bridge. The celebration was for the announcement that the New York Regional Interconnect withdrew its plan to build an electric transmission line along the Upper Delaware River. Shortly after all had headed to their tents for the night a freight train rumbled by only to be followed by strong winds and rain later at night.

Paulinskill RIver

This trip on the Paulinskill River was on the first Sunday in January 2008. The forecast was for temperatures in the 40's but I doubt it made it out of the 30's. Five of us put-in just north of Stillwater. We managed to find our way through the log jams shortly after we launched. Lunch was on a nice grassy bank in the sun and warmth. We took our time paddling down through the rapids between Marksboro and Blairstown. Because of snow and ice where we normal park for the takeout, we decided to paddle another 2 miles down to Lambert Road. We managed to get off the water before dark, but had to switch boats at the put-in in the dark.
