Ft. Langley Egg meet

Anyone going to the Fort Langley meet? I'll be there. With a canoe. (good paddling on the channel)

Re: Ft. Langley Egg meet


Lisa (my wife) and I will be there. (the same day we pick up our trailer)
Ian and Sandy (Eddys)will be there. (they are picking up their trailer then too, and will be sharing our site)
Of course Reace and Tammy will be there too.
I think Anna-Marie (amirie) will be close by as well.


I would love to bring one of my canoes, but I imagine I will have a full load to bring to stock the trailer, but we'll see.

I think it's May 9th weekend (I'll check) at the Fort Langley Campground. There'll be lots of folks there, apparently all the reserved sites are full.

Come down - bring the canoe.

Re: Ft. Langley Egg meet

I know of one pull through site that they allow 2 units on that would gladly share a spot with someone. Kevin Johnston is his name, he is right by me and only has a 13' Boler. If desired, you could contact him on FGRV, or I have his email addy and phone number if needed.

I really would like to bring a canoe, and will have to see if I can get one on top, along with the carrier I will likely be using. I assume the river is quite flat and slow there? If I can even fit a canoe on, I would like to bring my tripping boat, as opposed to my prospector.

Re: Ft. Langley Egg meet

the channel is flat and slow for sure - the rowers use it (so it's calm).

I've paddled around the island before (1-2 hour trip) and paddled up the shoreline to a little creek to explore. I'll have a solo 14' Prospector and possible access to a tandem (although not sure yet).

Re: Ft. Langley Egg meet

I think they would rent a canoe there, though it would likely be a Coleman tub, or something indestructible like that. I guess weight is not really an issue, as we won't be loaded with gear. Our Hellman Prospector is a great tough boat, and not too bad speed wise when not loaded up, but our 17-6 Swift Winnona, at 40 lbs is fast, and a pleasure to paddle, even loaded. It is not near as maneuverable though, and I would not take it on anything above a Class I rapid.

Re: Ft. Langley Egg meet

I just checked, and there is canoe and kayak rentals for sure. The canoe in the photo they have is a Robins egg blue Clipper, though that could just be their poser boat.

I'd like to be there, but I have the pleasure of attending a wedding.
