We will meet at the put-in at 9:45-10:00 AM to unload boats. We'll then drive all vehicles into Rockford around 10:15-10:20 AM and bring the drivers back to the put-in and be on the water by 10:30-10:45 AM. If you do not make it to the put-in in time to shuttle your vehicle, you can most likely beg a ride from someone after reaching the take-out.

Typically the temps peak with the highs in the mid 30's. Dress warm, in layers, and bring some spare clothes to take with you on the river. Spare clothes come in very handy if you or someone near you decides to take a swim along the way!

We'll stop once along the way for a brief snack/pit-stop near Summit and 12 Mile RD. You are welcome to drop-in and join us from here to Rockford. We usually arrive here around 12:30-1:00pm. 

After we make it into Rockford, we'll portage over to the Grand River Saloon to warm up a bit with food, drink and conversation.

Be aware that there is a possibility that your boat will scrape over multiple rocks or other obstructions. You should be prepared to get out of your boat at least once during the trip to portage around an obstacle in the river. If you're interested in current river levels, You can track the Rogue Rivers flow rate [HERE]. This gauge is downstream from where we will be, but it gives a pretty good indication of whether the river will be running low or high.

Directions to Put-In From Grand Rapids:
Take US-131 to the Rockford Exit (10 Mile RD)
Turn West onto 10 Mile Rd NE (away from Rockford)
Stay on 10 Mile Rd NE (East) for approx - 3/4 mile
Turn RIGHT (North) onto Jewell RD - 1 mile
Turn LEFT (West) onto 11 Mile RD (just before Jewell ends)
Turn RIGHT into dirt road launch area after about 200 yards (If you go over the bridge/river, you've gone too far!)

Wabasis Paddle on Saturday the 15th!

Due partly to some confusion on my part and the weather forecast, we're changing the Wabasis Color paddle to Saturday the 15th.  Sorry for the confusion this has created for anyone planning to paddle on Sunday, but it works out best for Kim and Robert as well has giving us a lot better weather forecast.
