I have a Junction local who wants to join us. No need for lodging or food. Other than the waiver, any other forms needed?  What would be his contribution for the shuttle cost?

John S.

About $20-30 is more than reasonable ecpectation.  We will split the livery cost for Saturday evenly.  The more we have transported, the lower the individual cost. 

There may be a change to that once we get closer to the trip.

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!

May 30, 2015 - The park is open but more rain could cause the roadway into the park to be closed . . .
 
Please check area weather and roadways, or contact the park, before traveling.

Skip and Mary-Kay stopped by to fish with me, and before the wind picked up too bad, I landed one LMB, one BG, and a catfish.  All on a black Hare-E, size 10.

Picktures later.

I made it to work safely by leaving Katy at 0530, only to show up to a building that is empty.

Now the roads around the buidling are just now opening up, so I still can't quite get myself to leave.

I have my RFC tying stuff in th truck, assuming we are still having a meeting tonight?

Fishing was poor with topwaters, so I switched to a "Ligon" size 6 and this is what happened.

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