Little Mo Dam release, Thursday, 8/9/12

Post by Cowper » Mon Aug 06, 2012 2:30 pm

Doug W, Michael S, and myself are heading down on Thursday.

Stops in Conway, LR, and Benton for those wishing to carpool.
Benton Stop will be at noon at the Home Depot, on right side of I-30 as you're travelling from LR towards Arkadelphia.

or meet at 2 PM at the Take out -
N34.0857 W93.708 “Low Water Bridge” Access.

Short Version: Class II, suitable yet exciting for beginners, but with a few play spots that are fun even for very experienced boaters. Water is cool enough to help you deal with 100+ degree heat, providing natural air conditioning in the river valley, but not so cool that you need anything more than a swimsuit, pfd, and sunscreen. A summer gem in these dry times.

I'm in.

Can't wait for the dinner after and I'm betting that the restaurant owner will be a happy guy this week!!!

Do you have room for two or three more boats if I promise not to swim past the take-out?

Hey man, you've got it all backwards: We'll make room for more boats if you promise that you WILL swim at the take-out!

(several of us are going to a River rescue clinic this weekend, so if we get in some early practice, then so muchthe better!)

Dan you're welcome to swim past the take-out, I just don't want to paddle down to the 27 bridge again. Of course you're welcome to join us the more the merrier. Looking forward to seeing you again, and thanks for the pics. BOB

Joe, I'm thinking noonish - depends a little on whether I can make it down to OOO today, or need to stop by tomorrow.

I'll nail it down today and post an exact time and place tonight after I get home from pool sessions.

I think my truck currently has me, Doug, Michael, meaning we have room for you too. Kind of a scary combination, but WTH, I need to learn how to live dangerously again... :ROFL:

I'ld like to tag along too, if you have room for a newbie on the river. I can drive and would have room for at least 1 more boat on the roof rack from LR or Benton.

Tom - Done.

Luke - of course you're welcome to join.

All

Let's set a time - Meet at the Benton Home Depot at NOON

Since we still have folks joining in, we'll figure out there how many cars /trucks we can combine, and how many we need to roll to the river.
