Make your own campground or lodging reservations.  Two  Moon Campground Site 11 will be where we gather, but there are lots of other places, including yurts and cabins.Reserve Wyoming 

Glendo is a huge (and sometimes very windy) reservoir.  See
Glendo WY Scouting 2023  for a scouting report in our Publications for detailed information. 

The Poudre Paddlers are  also be doing the North Platte paddle on the same day.  Their excellent description is here:https://www.poudrepaddlers.org/glendo.html
  •  We can coordinate the shuttle with them.  Or, if the combined group is too big, we will go in two or three waves. 
If we have enough folks interested and available on August 9,  we can do the exploratory trip that Anne Fiore  had planned for the Rocky Mountain Canoe Club.  The August 10 paddle will be a float from Glendo to Guersney.   This is mostly an easy Class 1 float, but along toward the end there is a fun wave train to play in.  The wave train is easy to avoid and also easy to repeat time after splashy time by using the eddy on river left.  Pot luck at site 11 on Saturday night.  

Wyoming requires an invasive species sticker and you must have your boat inspected as you cross the border.

If you order online, you need to have a printer so you can print a receipt that is good for 15 days. They will mail you the actual decal within 10 days. You  need a separate sticker for each boat you float in Wyoming. The money goes to trying to keep invasive species out of Wyoming.

2. Wyoming Inspection: All boats have to stop and be inspected as they enter the state during the summer months. That includes canoes and kayaks. The inspection stations are only open certain hours, so you will have to plan your trips accordingly. This will affect all floats on the North Platte. If you plan on driving up I-25 to Cheyenne, then the inspection station is in the welcome center parking lot, a few miles north of the border, at 5611 High Plains road. They are usually open during the summer from 6:00 am to 9:00 pm.
