    I have to shift to (next Sat) the 5th due to medical issues. Sorry!
    I have the main channel on my garmin if yall are still going this Sat I could link-up with yall and transfer route data. It should be fairly close but sure some things have changed since all the flooding this summer.
    Right now I dont see anything preventing us going on the 5th.
    Again Sorry

    Took my mom and sister for a ride in the evening. Only went alittle ways above the old glen bridge. Checked the tail race on the way back. If we dont get any rain and it stays cool there wont be any water going in to the upper side of the tail race next weekend.

    Hey ya'll, somethings come up (a wedding, for somebody else) that I forgot about for next Saturday, any chance we could do it on Sunday? I sure would appreciate it. I have a friend that bought an 18 footer with a 115 outboard jet on it and he wants to go on the run as well but we both have to go to this fricken wedding... Thanx fellas... "fishon"...
