Thanks TXSER for all you do too!!!!
Thanks to all!
We accept for every volunteer that showed up in the
Hot cold wet dry dark light rain storm ice hurricane and all the other not perfect for paddling days to help us help planet earth.
Besides a ton of trash we also found treasues…yes one man’s trash rings true…be we also found inspiration in each other and a common goal and and infections enthusiasm to be a part of something bigger than self and helping each other along the way.
Sadly I fear that long after we leave there will always be a threat from us ourselves a selfinflicted wound to our natural resources …..but I also hold out hope…hope that someday we can all go out and not find any trash and just enjoy nature fellowship and being us individual and together!
The annual FTLOTL picnic at Flagpole Hill is this Saturday!!!
So please feel free to join us for some trash and also for some
fellowship…food…and fun at Flagpole Hill too!

Suprise..actually 3 of them….in the form of 3 lonely kayaks…with out their kayakers….yikes. hope your OK
and please contact us and we will help you get your gear back….really!
The other suprise….the fantastic weather and the fantastic people!
It was a perfect day and boy o boy…did we have a BIG time!!!
We got some quality kayak time in a kayak and despite the fact some were new to the sport…all had a good time…
And although the air was warm the water was still cold so despite the willingness we decided to pass on the float and stick with the boats….
So we had a snack…hit the final.leg and stopped for our beauty shot…
And just in case your keeping score it was 308 cfs all day….now you know!
PADDLE SAFE…PADDLE OFTEN!!!!
With the waterflowing at a very nice 338 cfs….it was a fun float for sure!
But not to worry even at this cfs…the beach is just fine!
And just so you know..we launched at
10:15am and paddled down river till about 2:45pm and we saw no one else
On the river …..that’s right we had the river to just us for a little over 4 hours
So Mark you calendar for the November run Saturday the 18th!
And remember to….
PADDLE SAFE & PADDLE OFTEN!
At Oak Point
BIG THANKS TO RACHAEL TOO
And a BIG Thanks to the original TEN of the 1st Full Moon paddle at OPNP!!!
It was a beautiful evening with zero wind and the temp dropped quickly after Mr Sun went down….
Once we slipped into the kayak we slipped into the water for the moon rise!
Check out the moon in these shots…
And some no flash shots too….
We’re back at Oak Point on the 28th with kayak class and looking for our next full moon paddle late in 2017 or early in 2018!
Until we paddle again…always remember….
