Mike’s Mini Sojourn 2012 – Same Format, Different Venue
I decided to mix things up a little bit this year, and chose a different river for my Wednesday night sojourn series. Our first trip will begin 33.4 miles east of last year’s starting point, on the Chenango River, in Sherburne, NY.
Over a seven week period we will paddle approximately 52 miles from Sherburne to Chenango Forks, in 5 to 10 mile intervals, all on Wednesday evenings from about 5 to 8 PM.
05/23/12 6 miles Sherburne to North Norwich
05/30/12 8 miles North Norwich to Norwich
06/06/12 7 miles Norwich to North Oxford
06/13/12 5 miles No Oxford to Oxford
06/20/12 10 miles Oxford to Brisben
06/27/12 7 miles Brisben to Greene
07/04/12 9 miles Greene to Chenango Forks
The upper Chenango is similar to the upper Tioughnioga, narrow, intimate, quick in spots, with enough challenge to keep you on your toes now and again. Good boat control is required to keep you safe and dry. While it is not a trip for first timers, novices and intermediates should have no difficulties at normal water levels if paying attention.
I prefer that you register for each individual leg of the journey. You can e-mail or call to sign up, and I ask that you do so by 6 PM on the Tuesday before the trip.
