Normally there would be a Hash on the next Monday. However, as you know the next Monday is July 4th and many will be engaged in family gatherings etc.
Therefore the next “trail” will be on Sunday July 3rd at 3:00 pm. We will do a tube float down the river starting at the Kern River Parkway, which is the parking lot adjacent to the volleyball courts on Truxtun Ext just west of the intersection with Mohawk. The float will end at The Park at Riverwalk. We will have a vehicle at the Riverwalk so we can shuttle back to the A. In addition, for those interested there will be an on-after at Chalet Tool (official residence of Mommie Queerest and Limp Noids) with hamburgers and hotdogs and swimming and whatever.
Because this float trail and on-after requires a little extra planning, we need a Head Count. Please RSVP to limpnoids by 6:00 p.m. Sat. July 2 if you plan to attend. The charge for this trail will be $6 to cover the cost of shitty good beer and the shitty good burgers. Besides the RSVP all you need to do is bring sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, and a towel for after the float. We will provide tubes for the float. We have approximately 20 tubes so RSVP early… First cum first served.
Directions to the A for the float: From 99 take the California Ave exit and go west. At Mohawk turn right to Truxton Ext. and turn left. After turning onto Truxton Ext. take the next right into the parking lot for the Kern River Parkway lot.
As you know the Kern River thru town is usually just a sandy dry riverbed this time of year. However, right now we can enjoy being in the water. One word of caution and disclaimer. If you don’t know how to swim you should not do the float. All persons on the float do it at their own risk with no one else responsible or liable for your behavior, actions, or safety.
Let’s do this! Again, you MUST RSVP by Sat. July 2 at 6:00 pm. if you plan to attend. If you don’t RSVP and show up unfortunate things will happen. You will 1) have no tube and 2) have no food and 3) have no beer.
One more note: If you have a pickup and can/want to help air and transport tubes to the A please indicate that to limpnoids in your RSVP and provide a cell number for contact. We will likely need to start the air/transport process for the tubes at around 1:00 pm Sunday. Also, if you have or can borrow a portable air compressor that would be very helpful so let me know. The Hash and I would be grateful!
