Here’s the scoop: LGBT (Lesbian) Kayaker on Global Expedition
Sarah made news when she proposed to her girlfriend from the middle of the ocean last year. <click here>
British adventurer Sarah Outen is over half-way through a gruelling global expedition from London2London:Via the World in which she is attempting to loop the planet using human power. She started in a kayak under Tower Bridge on April 1st 2011 and since then has kayaked, cycled and rowed east across land and oceans to Alaska, where she completed her North Pacific row in September 2013 after 150 days at sea. The first attempt in 2012 ended with a rescue. Sarah returns to Adak Island, Alaska to kayak the Aleutian Island chain in April 2014 with team mate Justine Curgenven. The onward journey involves cycling to the Canadian East Coast and rowing home across the North Atlantic in 2015. Sarah is sharing stories along her way and is eager to inspire others to take on their own challenges.

PADDLE: First Annual Timothy Lake Kayak/Campout
MEETING: Oak Fork Campground
TIME: Multi-day with camping option
LEADER: Sandy Stewart Leader@outkayaking.org 971-400-5060 <RSVP, Click Here>
The trip features a full moon paddle on Saturday night and explorations along 12 miles of shoreline. The lake is 2.5 miles wide and about 9 miles around. In the northeast corner an arm extends a couple miles up towards Little Crater Lake and access to the PCT. With lots of marsh, this area is a favorite of Osprey and Mergansers. A beaver house sits in the shallow, clear stream near the bridge marking the end of the navigable waterway, and the marshlands around Little Crater Lake. You can also mountain bike, fish, swim, sail, bird, trap crawdads*, or hike, including a section of the Pacific Crest Trail. Birds typically seen include Bald Eagles, Osprey, Nighthawks, Juncos, Crossbills, and Mergansers. Fish include Rainbow trout, brook trout, kokanee, and cutthroat trout. Or if you like horses (or Alpaca/Llama), stand on the trail a while and some will come past.
Camp Details: We will stay at Oak Fork campground, which is the southeastern most of the organized campgrounds on the lake. It has designated campsites with picnic tables, fire pits, (cold) running water and pit toilets. Campground rules allow no more than 6 adults per campsite. If you don’t want to stay in an organized campground, Meditation point on the opposite side of the lake has 8 first come first serve campsites available to boaters or those who hike in. There are also dispersed sites around the lake, but PGE plans to manage them actively in 2014 and many will be closed.
Location: Located less than 2 hours and 80 miles from Portland, Timothy Lake is sourced from numerous springs, nearby Little Crater Lake and Clackamas Lake. It feeds the Clackamas River. Elevation is about 3300 feet.
Notes: This is a fee campsite and RSVP is needed and site is limited so RSVP and payment needed to reserve space.
Rentals: There is no rental at the launch location. Must transport kayak. Check to see if they will strap to our car.
