If the fact that your Dad is your Dad isn’t enough of a reason to celebrate Father’s Day, we thought of a few more reasons to give your Pops a gift he won’t forget this year! We don’t just give a card and call it a day for our Fathers, we go all out, we give him adventure and we give him a noggin full of awesome memories he won’t soon forget.
For a paddler in New Hampshire, Winnipesauke River in Franklin, NH is the only place to be on New Year’s Day. Every year, the Merrimack Valley Paddlers throw a great event to kick off the New Year. They rent out a church where paddlers can meet up and change. The town sets up a warming hut at the takeout. In the warming hut, there is often a chili cook off, hot chocolate, and coffee. After paddling, the Merrimack Valley Paddlers host an excellent dinner. I have been going to this event for many years and it never disappoints.
After taking a few months off from paddling to focus on deer hunting, skiing and working retail during the Christmas season, it was time to get back in a boat. Every year on New Year’s Day, the Merrimack Valley Paddlers (MVP) run an event on the Winnipesauke River in Franklin, New Hampshire. I have been to this event many times and it is one of my favorites.

Every year, for one day, we get to one of Vermont’s hidden gems - the West River. The West River is a perfect mix of adventure and leisure - it has a little bit more adventure than the Zoar Gap and is a little mellower than the Dryway.
