New Year’s Hangover Float @ Cedar River
Jan 1 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Start the New Year boating with WRRR!

We will meet at noon at Derik Sallee’s house (22035 Dorre Don Ct SE, Maple Valley – phone  509-460-0079). Note that this is a different place than we usually meet – it’s a little downstream from Randy and Nancy’s place. We put in at Landsburg. We usually have between 2 and 25 boaters, depending upon the flow (and maybe the weather, but it’s Washington, you know).

We will be celebrating WRRR members who have passed on. Please bring your happy thoughts of your fellow boaters and enjoy the trip!

Tilton Trek @ Ike Kinswa State Park
Feb 17 – Feb 19 all-day
Tilton Trek @ Ike Kinswa State Park | Silver Creek | Washington | United States

Brrrr! It’s cold and rainy and just right for a trip on the Tilton! The Tilton is a beautiful class III-IV canyon just west of Mt. Rainier. The first few miles are an easy warmup for the narrow and exciting gorge section. The rapids are challenging and fast – you have to stay on your toes on this run. There is a paddle out on the lake at the end, but it’s not too long and you’ll have plenty of time to talk about the awesome run you just had (and about whatever ridiculous thing happened to the club president this time…).

The group will camp at Ike Kinswa State Park, which is the takeout for the run. There are cabins you can reserve for the night if you’d rather not camp in the cold.

Meet at the takeout Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m. or camp out Friday night. If flows are high, or if there are people who just want an easier float, the Upper Tilton is a class II+-III run.

NOTE: Flows are expected to be high and there are reports of wood in critical places. Please check in with the group before going to the put-in.
