Re: Tips on Spring Break on the Rio Grande?

I would not swim in this water. Well, unlike you Dave, some of us don't have a lot of choice but to swim when our boats are suddenly removed from our possession by a rapid. :-) Seriously, is the water quality so bad that you would not want to flip a kayak over in it? Safe to take kids on? Even afte...

Re: NWA Membership drive and WW park grand opening

I went to the restroom at the last meeting, Major mistake. Gotta have a strong bladder if you don't want to get signed up for stuff. I had to take a dump at Rendezvous one year and ended up serving time as NWA chapter prez for the next three years. Can't wait to come join the fun at the new WW park...

Tips on Spring Break on the Rio Grande?

Thinking about going to Big Bend and doing the Rio Grande mid-March. Never been, so if anyone has done it and can provide some info/tips, I'd be much obliged. What's the weather/temps like that time of year? Water temp warm enough for swimming at camp? Usually low or high water in March? Will a raft...

Re: Whitewater school - promo video

I think a big ole plate of this bacon along with eggs or pancakes would be a ton better than the cold pop tops pastry we used to have for breakfast on many of our adventures. Man, don't diss the official Breakfast of Stupids (TM). Sometimes we down some "mini-bacon" (aka Fritos mixed with artificia...

Re: Whitewater school - promo video

OK, what is the deal and where can a person buy the " Pettit Jean bacon..." Papa Dave, to experience the wonder of Petit Jean bacon check out this link, but it can also be purchased in most NW AR grocery stores: http://www.petitjeanmeats.com/Bacon-Sampler/productinfo/211/ But your best bet is to pu...

Re: Whitewater school - promo video

I'm just disappointed you couldn't get James Earl Jones for the narration... Tom, that's a great video - proud to say I'm associated with the ACC Canoe School! Well, at least loosely associated (I'm certifiable, but never certified)... But I still question the decision to raise the price of the panc...

Re: Just noticed I have two balls.

I think I lost a ball somewhere about a year ago. Along with all the time I used to have to post mindless drivel here.

Just kidding. It was actually fairly insightful and interesting drivel.

Bonus points if you relocate any of the wood you find out of the creekbed. :)

Re: Anyone hiking this weekend?

BTW, if you do hike Adkins (it is a beautiful but very rugged hike), let us know what the tree situation is down in there. About 5 years ago it was really bad in the first 0.5 miles of the run. Not sure past there. I'm hoping some of those chunks of wood have flushed out...? That's a great run - nev...

Re: Anyone hiking this weekend?

Going to be a lot of boaters out at Richland at the Barton's party. Probably will be quite a few folks heading up Richland to Twin Devils or other hikes in that area. We'll have the kids so not sure where we'll end up. Maybe Pedestal Rocks or Glory Hole. Not sure everyone can see it, but here's a ph...
