Re: ARKAYAKANSAS

Those boys ran some good hair. My DVD didn't have good sound but I really didn't need it. Pictures are worth a 1000 words.

Re: Passing of Don "Motor" Sims

RIP Motor....I paddled several river miles with Motor. The one that sticks out most to me was a trip out West on the Arkansas. Motor always said he would rather roll that brace. I never understood that. He had a epic surf in the Royal Gorge @ Sunshine Falls. I bet he rolled 10 times before he finall...

Re: Santa coming to Club meeting?

What a good time I had. We have some sweet and beautiful young ones in our group. I hope they all grow up to be paddlers and stewards of the water ways. Thanks for bring the kids out. :canoe:

Santa coming to Club meeting?

Hi everyone,
If there is interest, I would come to our canoe club meet Monday 11/28 as Santa. If you want to bring your young ones to the meeting? Please respond to this? I would show up around 6 if that is OK with Tracy?

Lee Creek cleanup

Wanted to thank Dennis and Wayne for cleaning up the 220 bridge on Lee today. We didn't have much of a turnout but those 2 boys and my wife Janelle had the put- in looking good when we left. Thanks to Dennis and the Rivervalley chapter for bring the bags, gloves, shovels and rakes. We had a GREAT ti...

Re: New Member Seeking River Information

What Paddle Dog said about the "upper Elk" is true. It is a party river maybe a little bit R rated at times. There is a run on the Elk that is beautiful below Noel Mo. The take out is at a place called Cowskin. It has some pretty bluff lines and the fishn' isn't bad either. It is about 8 miles long ...

Re: Pulp mill lower Caddo east of Amity AR

Hay guys I'm on your side! Not as smart as some y'all. I know tree farms are NOT forest I've seen them. As a matter of fact I LIVE in the woods. I've seen what growth has done to NWA. I own land in South Arkansas and have managed to keep our hard wood in the same condition they have been in for year...

Re: Pulp mill lower Caddo east of Amity AR

My wife is from Camden, we go down there often. The trees that would be used are from "tree farms" that have been in use for many years. I hope that the few oaks and other hard woods will not be cleared to make more tree farms. The water usage is a big concern however.

Re: Beer Tipper, She's Back

I've run the upper Frog with my buddy Brett. It is steep and narrow with strainer danger . There are 2 pretty good drops one is a good play spot close to the end of the run. As a matter of fact you can look up on a clear day and see Artist Point. The last time we ran it a farmer had strung up a barb...

Re: Beer Tipper, She's Back

Woo Hoo!!
I also thought that Gray Rock looked to coming back. It could be also that the river was running @ 18" airspace.
