Re: LITTLE MISSOURI 84 TO 12000 TUESDAY 6/30/20

Trip cancelled. I'm letting the heat index keep me from going. Well, that and no other paddlers.

LITTLE MISSOURI 84 TO 12000 TUESDAY 6/30/20

P2 Little Missouri 2002.jpg P1 Little Missouri 2002.jpg If I get some more boaters to join in I'd like to paddle from Hwy. 84 bridge to timber road 12000 tomorrow, Tuesday June 30, 2020, on the Little Missouri River just west of Langley, Arkansas. I won't be starting real early, probably starting d...

Big Cove Creek Trip report from June 9, 2020

Calvin Doody and I made a run down two miles of the creek Tuesday around noon. No flips. More water would have helped by covering more of the rocks. I had to get in the water once to cool off. The amount of maneuvering required was a real workout. Video to be processed later. Calvin ducks lo res.jpg...

Re: Join me in a Class II-II+ creek outing

Based on 3" of rain at the nearby S. Fourche gage we are going. Should be at the bridge by 11:00. Text me if you are coming. 501-681-2314

Re: Join me in a Class II-II+ creek outing

I'll check the radar rainfall summary Tuesday morning to see if a paddle down the creek is possible; it's iffy right now. If it is, I'd like to meet at the take out bridge in the morning, time not set yet, 10:00 a.m. would be the EARLIEST possible I could be there. I'll post here in the morning. Mik...

Re: Join me in a Class II-II+ creek outing

I really feel like the Sunburst canoe will be too long to be able to navigate between the obstacles on this creek and have a pleasant day. Kayaks under 10 feet in length that turn quickly are what's best suited for this trip. Longer boats will require a much higher skill level. There should be lots ...

Re: Join me in a Class II-II+ creek outing

Looks like Cristobal will deliver water to Big Cove Creek on Tuesday if the National Hurricane Center's prediction is accurate. Slots are filling now for a Covid19 safe outing (masks and six foot spacing, please) on this novelty creek. There's not much to it besides steering past rocks and brush. If...

Re: Join me in a Class II-II+ creek outing

Hi Jim, I am still alive and have some free time since visitors are not allowed in the nursing home at this time. Jamie seems to be doing okay without my daily attention, thank goodness. I may have missed an opportunity to paddle Big Cove Creek this week. I had a molar extracted last Thursday and am...

Join me in a Class II-II+ creek outing

The next time there is water in Big Cove Creek I plan to ease down two miles of this small waterway. It's located about 15 miles north of Hot Springs Village, flowing under a bridge on Highway 7.

Too much water in the Little Mo for me. Post if you would like to paddle Self Creek.

Re: Little Missouri, 84 to road 12000 changed to SUNDAY

Looks like the upper Little Missouri will be running. I'm pretty sure Self Creek will be running. If anyone wants to paddle Class II Self Creek, that will be my first choice. If I get no takers, I'll go to the upper Little Mo if the level is not beyond my abilities. I'm sure there will be a lot of p...

Re: Little Missouri, 84 to road 12000 changed to SUNDAY

It's pretty clear that the water will be too high for a Class II trip down the 84 -12000 section of the Little Mo on Sunday. The Albert Pike to 84 section may be at a safe level by Sunday. There's a good chance that Self Creek will be at a Class II level. I'll check back here this evening with a dec...
