Caddo on Saturday the 2nd

Post by Jim Krueger » Fri May 01, 2015 8:48 am

We're thinking about floating the Caddo tomorrow, meeting at the Glenwood bridge about 10:30 to decide on the section and set shuttle.

Best Regards
Jim

I might join instead of going up to WWS for just one night. I will let you know later this afternoon.

OK Lee, loading the extra boat now, plus paddle and extra PFD. Thank you Larry and Pat for coming with us! We will see you all in the morning. Everyone needs to remember lunch and drinks!
My friend Taylor from here in Benton will also be joining us in the morning. It should be a delightful day.

Best Regards
Jim

Jim,
Noah, Holly, and I would love to join in as well. See you at the bridge.
Sandy

Well, nope. Holly just called and she isn't feeling well. Maybe we will catch you another day instead.

Jim,
I somehow read the time as 11:30 instead of 10:30 last night. I'll have to catch you next time. I private messaged you my cell # for logistics next time.

Best
Kurt

What a nice day on the Caddo today! We had eleven folks in kayaks today, and at a level of about 5.50 feet this morning, we elected to float the Glenwood to Amity section. It was my first trip on the section this year and it was very nice, a pretty good level and no major strainers. Along the way, we had some good views of an eagle that just kept a bit ahead of us, several ducks, and an osprey downriver in the last couple of miles.
Thank you all for coming today, I enjoyed everyone's company!

Best Regards
Jim

I hate that we missed this float, especially since the wildlife was stirring. It was probably for the best though; I managed to get a lot of yard work and such done that has needed to be accomplished for some time now. Sure hope to see you again soon, Jim. We really enjoyed the last float with you. Keep posting trips as they arise, and maybe we can manage the next one. The Caddo is always such a beautiful float, especially with great friends such as you and Marlo. I've already warned Wayne: When the rivers are flowin' and the friends are goin'...I'm outta here. :kayak:

Jim,

Thanks for putting together this float. It was a pretty stretch of river. And thank Marlo for helping me cover the bolt hole in my boat. It was great meeting everyone and lots of fun.

Maggie
