Yes, it’s time for some Hot Times on the Kansas River! The First Float was in June and the River was fabulous! A good flow rate and lots of sunshine were ingredients in our day. Those ingredients combined with great company brought good times to the 48 paddlers who ventured out with Dirty Girl Adventures. We are looking forward to Hot Times River Run on Sunday July 27th, 2014!
We are currently planning to explore a different section of the Kansas River – from the Seward Boat Ramp in Topeka to Rising Sun River Access in Lecompton . This 12.7 mile long paddle will take 4 – 5 hours depending on the amount of time we choose to dally on the sand bars. Yoga, anyone? This section of the river does have a low head dam near the Tecumseh Power Plant – it is easy to go over through a middle section at normal or low river flow rates. Dirty Girl Adventures will determine the safety of this passage before the Hot Times River Run begins.
Paddlers will need to meet at the Rising Sun River Access to leave their vehicles and catch the standing room only Redy2Party Bus for a ride to the Seward Boat Ramp. Own your own kayak? Plan to drop your gear with the Dirty Minions at Seward then head to Rising Sun for a packed bus ride!
There are 32 single person kayaks and 2 – 2 person tandem kayaks available for the Hot Times River Run. Seats are first come, first served. The payment buttons will be removed when the maximum number of people have registered. A waiting list will be started in case registered paddlers need to cancel. Refunds will be given for cancellations through July 21st. After July 21st, refunds will only be given if Dirty Girl Adventures can re-sell your spot.
Dirty Girl Adventures has the right to cancel this event due to weather or water conditions up to the day of the River Run. Refunds will be given if Dirty Girl Adventures chooses to cancel. Cancellation will be due to safety concerns – please feel confident that Dirty Girl Adventures are making every effort to ensure your safety on the river. Dirty Girl Adventures reserves the right to refuse service to anyone.
Gear to bring: WATER, sunscreen, hearty snacks and a lunch, water, sunscreen, old tennis shoes or water shoes, hat, beverages of your choice, your favorite life jacket if you have one otherwise you can use a DGA floatation device 😀
