Yes, it’s time to get yer Ass Kicked again! Four years ago, a small group of friends set out for a 20 mile kayak adventure on the Mighty Kaw. Here we are back in the day…. I don’t know why JF MacGyver isn’t in this picture because she was with us … it’s always a good day on the Kaw! We have been so excited to take others with us for a 20 Mile Ass Kickin’ the last few years. Every adventure is a new and different experience!
It was a great idea and we enjoyed the day, but man, were we tired at the end! This adventure is not for the faint of heart – it should be HOT, the water will likely be LOW and the day will be LONG! That being said, it’s not a race! We will chillax on almost every sandbar we pass with time in the water, time to explore and a bit of yoga stretching to keep us limber. This event will last ALLLLLLLLLLL day so plan for no plans before or after. Although, we do recommend a shower followed by a hearty dinner and a glass of wine when you get home!

What are you paying for?
Use of a kayak, paddle, life jacket and all of the lifting, hauling, planning and coordination needed to make this happen. Renters and Oyo’s are paying for a river guide and experienced safety paddlers who will ensure that your trip is safe and that you receive instruction and support along the way. We will have supplies necessary to provide basic first aid on the river. You will also have the opportunity to ride on the DIRTY GIRL BUS!! For you OYO’s, there will also be a Dirty Minion to guard your gear after you drop it off – remember though, that the lifting, hauling, loading is on you unless you are going to tip the minions!
