Sorry, guys... I'm abroad that weekend and won't be able to make it. Dang! I love paddling those marshes, and an easy trip. And then there's always the Stingaree - cold beer, poboys, and live music. Sounds like a great way to finish a great day!

Mike - you're welcome to use my kayak and gear if you like, just let me know.
