I can't justify buying it, but it is a great little watercraft.


It actually rained out Junction way.

May 21, 2015 - The park is closed due to flooding . . .Water is over the low water crossing at the park entrance.

3 weeks away for our trip, and the water may be a little higher that last year!

I realized this was a Tuesday after I signed up.  I won't be able to make it.

My error.

It is the 11th, not the 7th.

I believe that it is a good idea to have as much information as possible on hand, particularly when you are in unfamiliar waters.

A map recon can only do so much.

I use my GPS maps on my PC, and find waypoints that I send to my GPS, before I get to the new waters I plan to explore.

One of the maps I use has all of the bottom contours, but my GPS software does not.  It would save time if it did.

Marking "Bear" down in pencil.

Once he confirms, I'll put him down for a couch, unless somebody beats him to it.   

As of right now (2015-04-29-0500) we still have all three couches open.
