Saturday, Jan 31, 2009 Gunnison Creek Paddle
Leader/Contact: Rob Nykvist (251) 423-0015
Meet Time/Place: Meet at Pilot Truckstop at I-65 & US 43 at 10:45 a.m.
Notes: We will be departing for the launch site at 11:00 a.m. Steele Creek Park, Satsuma, AL Launch is Free (Unless things have changed) Easy Distance about 6 miles. Expected time on water: 2-3 hours. Anticipate being back by 2:30-3:00 p.m. Rob plans to explore Gunnison Creek for his first time. Gunnison Creek wanders north from Steele Creek Park up about 3 miles before crossing under I-65, then another quarter mile later, it crosses under U.S. 43 where it looks like it gets too small to navigate.
Experience Level: Can you handle 50 degree temperatures for 3 hours? This will be a leisurely exploratory paddle, 2-3 mph average speed.
Second Wind Paddle: For those so inclined, after a short break back at Steele Creek Park, Rob plans to do a second paddle going up Steele Creek and back (less than 2 miles round trip).
Safety Warning: Water temperatures are still very cold. Dress appropriately. You may want to bring a change of clothes along
