Just saw on Channel 5 Web site that Hiway 23 is closed at Turner Bend due to bridge damage.

Re: Paddling somewhere Tues or Wed???

I'll keep an eye on the board. Haven't done Cadron for quite awhile, so if it's a go, I'll need some good directions.

Re: Paddling somewhere Tues or Wed???

Thanks Orange Otter. I'm not much into Facebook, but will keep an eye out here. I'd still prefer something in the NW/NC Ark area, but will keep your kind offer in mind. Thanks again.

Paddling somewhere Tues or Wed???

The rivers and creeks are angry today, but I'm thinking by Tuesday or Wednesday (5/12&13) they might calm down a bit. I have those 2 days available, and would like to float something about Class II to II+ either day. Thinking about Buffalo from Ponca, or maybe even from Boxley. Right now the Mulberr...

Re: People With Like Schedule

Echo paddledog's comment. I'm retired, so my schedule is flexible. What's your paddling ambitions? I'm basically a Class II+ to limited III paddler, and enjoy some flatwater when the rivers are low and the weather's nice.

KFSM Chan 5 story about Fishers Ford

Last night Channel 5 news did a story about kayaking at Fishers Ford. They explained how the water is high, everyone needs to be safe, be skilled, wear helmets, lifejackets, closed shoes, no lifeguards, etc. Nice video footage throughout. But I did a double take and watched it again on the DVR. The ...

Re: Somewhere Monday or Tuesday?

Need to dry dock my kayak for a few days, as there's an illness in the family. End of thread.

Re: Somewhere Monday or Tuesday?

Sorry, folks, but due to other issues & lack of interest, Monday and Tuesday are cancelled. Pretend like it's Wednesday. LOL. Cannot get away right now.

Somewhere Monday or Tuesday?

Anyone interested in paddling Monday or Tuesday? I'm looking at Buffalo from Ponca, or Mulberry above Hiway 23. Hope water levels hold.

Re: Northwest chapter winter pool sessions

I came, I saw, I con....wait, I didn't exactly conquer a roll. But thanks to some good instruction (thanks, Dave) I made progress. I really appreciate the ACC and Jones Ctr hosting these winter roll sessions. It was a little crowded today, but I guess that's a testament to success. Maybe Jones Ctr c...

Re: What's the Coldest Weather you Paddled?

Well, after reading all these, not sure I can top any. But here's mine. Way back in the olden days of aluminum canoes, a guy at the office asked to go with me. He and his son had their own canoe, and I got a buddy to paddle with me. The dad said he thought the trip would be good for his "emotionally...

Re: whitewater kayaking and corrective eyewear

I'm still learning to roll, and am a contact wearer. I use swim goggles when I'm practicing rolls, and contacts in the pool or river. I always have spare emergency glasses. I talked to my eye doc about eye infection concerns, so he gave me a prescription for some daily wear disposables to use in lie...
