Every time I drive up to the Sky I can't help but want to paddle the Snohomish...
 
I want to plan a trip from the confluence of the Sky and the Sno, and run it all the way out to Everett where the Snohomish flows into the sound (still need to do my homework though to determine the length of such a trip-it's possible I'll choose an earlier takeout).
 
Not sure really when this trip will occur. I just want to see if there's any interest here on PP. Otherwise I'll make a solo trip of it, in which case I will go all the way to Everett for sure even if I have to make an overnighter of it. I'm going to try to plan it when it's relatively warm and dry.
 
The idea is to take a long kayak (I mean really long: I'm taking my 17' sea kayak because it's the best boat I have for this trip) and crank out this long flatwater stretch. The pace will be moderately fast with minimal stopping aside from a few lunch/pee breaks. So if you want to join this trip be prepared to paddle at least at a moderately fast pace. You'll also need a 15' kayak or longer so our pace will be compatible.
 
We will of course pack a full lunch and other snacks, maybe bring a bottle of wine and/or other treats.
 
Anyway, if this sounds like something you're into hit me up with a PM and we'll go from there.
