1. Due to the amount of SPAM from foreign countries lately, we have made the decision to manually approve all new members. While we regret that this must be done and the added time that it will take for new members to be approved, it is necessary at this time. We hope to have legitimate new members approved in a timely manner, no longer than a couple of hours. If the Administrators are online at the time, it can be as soon as a couple of minutes. Thank you for your patience.

    It took a while, but I finally got this trip set up.

    Join Sandcut Outdoors and Northeast Wilderness Experience on Saturday, August 5, 2017 for a full day of kayaking and exploring the beautiful Upper Delaware River. This one-of-a-kind trip will focus on the edible and medicinal plants along the shoreline, gravel bars and islands of this Scenic and Recreational River. There will be many opportunities to see a variety of wildlife. If we are lucky, we may see beaver, turtles, black bear, American shad, river lamprey, bald eagles and possibly even a golden eagle. We will explore the steep-sloped river valley between Equinunk, PA and float approximately 8 miles almost to Hankins, NY. The shuttle will leave the rally point promptly at 9 am and we will arrive back at the rally point around 3 pm, depending on weather and current speed. Cost for the trip will be $65/person and will include guide service for both the natural history program and the kayak trip, equipment rental (including kayaks, paddles and PFDs), as well as shuttle service to the launch point. Space is limited to 20 participants, ages 12 years old and older. Pre-registration is required not later than noon on Wednesday, August 2. Spots on this trip will fill up quickly, so register early. Register by emailing your name and number participating to SandcutOutdoorsLLC@gmail.com . All participants will be required to wear a Personal Floatation Device (PFD) throughout the trip. And, sorry, but use of personal kayaks cannot be accommodated on this trip. Directions to the rally point will be provided upon registration.

    OK, we are now about two weeks from closing registration for this program and the class is halfway full. We only have 10 of 20 seats left available.
    We are, however, showing 93 people as "going" or " interested". If you do seriously plan to come on this trip, please send me an email to SandcutOutdoorsLLC@gmail.com to hold your spot before they run out. The weather in that area is currently gorgeous in the low/mid 80s and the USGS stream guage at our launch point shows that the water came up almost 18" a few days ago. Conditions couldn't be better, so register soon. I'm really excited about this trip!

    Terrific programming. That's a lot of fun and knowledge for 65$.

    Laet few days to register. 10 seats left and 107 people "interested". Act soon to reserve a seat.

    River conditions are beautiful according to the USGS stream guage. I'll be taking a quick reconnoiter of the river tomorrow to see how much it has changed in the past month. The gravel bars and islands should be well vegetated by now.
