Saturday October 9th

OYO’s – those who are bringing your own kayak – gear drop at 11am below the spillway of Lake Perry.   GOOGLE MAP LINK     From the North Lawrence Turnpike exit, turn right/west onto highway 24/40 traveling towards Topeka.  You will pass through the town of Perry.  Watch for Thompsonville Road on the right/north.  You will take this road below the spillway, take the first right turn BEFORE the spillway and follow this gravel road all the way to the water – there is a slight left turn to reach the launch.

Check in time is 12:00pm at Rising Sun River Access in Lecompton.  We will be on the Kaw by 1:00pm and off river by about 6:30pm.   This adventure will be over before sunset –  Sunset is at 6:52pm – you should enjoy brunch, eat lunch or bring heavy snacks for the paddle.

We will provide a fire and dinner on the sandbar(menu TBD) Judi is bringing dessert!  

Directions:
I-70 to Lecompton exit #197 (five miles west of Lawrence.) From exit 197 go north 1/4 mile to Lakeview Rd. Follow Lakeview Rd. west along the turnpike until it curves north, becoming Lecompton Rd. Go 3.2 miles through Lecompton. Continue north across the Kaw River on the Perry/Lecompton Bridge and look for the sign indicating Rising Sun River Access. Turn west into the park road that leads to the gravel parking lot. Concrete ramp is at the far end of the parking lot.

From US-24, turn south on Lecompton Rd east of the town of Perry, and continue 2.5 miles to the access road.

Bring:   Sunscreen, WATER,  electrolyte replacements, squirt guns, hearty snacks and beverages of choice.  Small soft sided coolers fit best into the kayaks – feel free to bring more than one.

WEAR:   Swimsuit, or clothing that can both get damp and dry quickly, hat, sunglasses, wear water shoes or old tennis shoes FLIP FLOPS ARE NOT OK!  Depending on the weather forecast, bring either sun protectant clothing or  a second layer just in case it’s cooler on the sandbar.  We HIGHLY suggest that you wear or bring clothing that is of synthetic material – it will wick sweat, dry quickly and keep you warm if needed – if it’s cool, bring a fleece jacket just in case.

What to expect:  We will be outside all day.  It will be a day of going with the flow and CELEBRATING!  The river is slow so we will be paddling most of the day.

Expected time commitment:  However long it takes, we don’t rush the river, we go with the flow!
