Self Support Primer

This day will be spent getting you ready for self-supporting out of a kayak for an overnight, multi-day trip.  Self supporting out of a kayak is the ultimate freedom that a kayak can offer.  All are welcome to the self-support primer, where we will touch on the many different aspects of self-support trips, including..

  • Difficulty of run
  • Length of run
  • Remoteness
  • Weather & Climate
  • Food
  • Learning to do without
  • Boat
  • Packing List
  • How to pack
  • Impact
  • Cooking
  • Human waste

We'll share our experiences, good and bad, talk about equipment that works well and give you some tips along the way as you prepare for your first kayak self-support trip.  Whether you come out and join us for our July 27-29th trip, or for your first self-support trip you are planning on your own, this class will prepare you for a Kayak Self-Support Adventure.
