The Second 10th Annual Rubber Ducky Float Trip

Join Zack for a Rio Grande floating adventure. We will start at 9am on Saturday July 13 at the Red Dot trailhead, hike down to the river, continue up the river trail to the bottom of the Blue Dot. There, we will stop and enjoy lunch and inflate our floating toys/mattresses/water wings. We will then float back down to the Red Dot, wash off in the clean springs, and hike back to our cars.

There are no rapids in this section of the river. The $3 vinyl inner tube toys at Smiths are suitable for this trip, potentially with a life vest or wetsuit if desired. Please invite summer students and postdocs.   You should be comfortable with long hikes, comfortable with heights, and comfortable swimming.  

Please email Zack if you would like to sign up, or call 505-412-5961 for more information.

safetyminute: 

In the event of an injury, I plan to:  call out and wait for rescue if necessary

The nearest hospital is: Los Alamos

If conditions turn poor right before the event will start, we plan to:

1) Abandon ship and stay out of the river

2) Bail out by email with as many people as possible, and meet at the start for stragglers
