Re: Mar 17-31 Paddling Southern Missouri & Arkansas Rivers

Jim:
Why don't you and Marlo join us for a few days or more this year? It would be good to see you again!

Dave:
It will really be good to see you this March! (And, as of now, the streams there have been running at about three times the rate of flow compared to last year at this time!)
Be well,

Re: Niobrara River Nebraska

B: The Nio is a stream that almost always has enough water: in fact, a really big thunderstorm that dumps 5" of water on the watershed will raise the river about 5" -- it is at the (relative) top of the Oglalla Aquifer (and in the Nebraska Sandhill region), so rainfall just seeps right into the aqui...

Dave, Luke, Diane and Crane:

Would love to get you folks up to join all of our Yankee paddlers. We'll see how the water levels and weather are doing as the time gets closer, and I'll post here to let folks know.

Thanks for considering our little enterprise!
