Want to go canoeing next week - for free?!

Posted September 15, 2010 2:47 p.m. EDT

I am doing a very quick giveaway for 2 Groupon coupons each good for a FREE 90 minute canoe trip with Paddle Creek in North Raleigh. Each Groupon is good for 1 canoe rental. You don't need a Groupon for each person. So, if there are three of you and you want to rent one canoe and go together, you only need one Groupon. 

The coupons expire on Wednesday, September 22 and I just spoke with Paddle Creek and the only availability they have is Monday - Wednesday, 9/20 - 9/22 (nothing available for this weekend).

We took this trip about a month ago and it was wonderful! They did a good job getting us to and from the drop off and pick up sites and the stretch of the Neuse River we canoed was beautiful. It's an easy 3-mile trip perfect for families. When we used our Groupons, all the cost was covered by the Groupon and we did not have to pay anything. Some canoeing experience is helpful, though!

If you are available to canoe next Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday and you would like these Groupons, just post on this thread. I will randomly choose a winner tonight at 9:00 PM. If you are the winner but only need 1 Groupon (because you only want 1 canoe), I will choose a second name to get the second Groupon. I will e-mail the Groupons to the winner(s) and I suggest you make your reservation tomorrow to secure a spot on such short notice. 

You can see the trip times and location through their website at the link in the box above.

On your marks, get set, post!
