Yup…makes you sad

But the way we get there

Fall in Texas

Is really nice!

That’s style

We have what would be called awesome support from our volunteers!

And let’s remember saving the planet 1 lake at a time takes skills.

Rocking the mask?

Did I mention the behind the scenes help?

Thanks to Marvin (again) and George too….you have to look close to see them in this pic.

Go Sandy!

This is your brain

And this is brain paddling with KPC!

Going organic

Yes we collected a social distance circle!

All this and a $ donation!!

Now that’s balance

Easy does it!

Yes they were both totally trashed!

Double doubles!

Can you name this famous singer musician?

Looking good!

Racers get it too!



Finding out no mask means no kayaking…bummer!

As always were only as good as our volunteers so that makes us…


Just like our volunteers!


Check out all the pics and hope to see you on the water!

We have a pivot paddle spot…

Bridgeport Falls put in

It’s an out and back and it’s also on the Trinity…the West Fork of the Trinity…but it’s easy to find and fairly close.

It’s a 1000 yards off of State Highway 114 and Farm to Market 2123

FM2123, Bridgeport, TX 76426

Were paddles wet at 10am

About 5.2 miles out and back. And all new stuff to see and experience.

We even have a covid 19 special price….just $19!!!

We will follow health protocols on land…ie..mask on!

And safety on the water ie…pfd’s on!

Hope to see you there!

Eco Tour June 2020

I could go on & on about the perfect weather…

Or I could go on & on about the perfect cfs water release (521)

I could also regale you with the tales of our fun too…

Instead I invite you to enjoy our fun though the photos special Thanks to KJ and Steve for the photo assist!


And yes we were practicing social distancing on the water & we were in complete compliance on the ground too!

Hope to see YOU on the water!

O yes!


All pics added from SF!!



We have the best volunteers in the biz..

Hard chargers

It’s a very eclectic group!

Yes it’s a skill

But we have a common goal…keep the planet clean one lake at a time!

Kudos to the group or person that got that gas line out of the water…I had been pulling on that for a couple of months!

This is view from the water looking back up at Jackson Point

Killing it!

So we had about 19 paddle out and get trashed but we also had another 20 show up for shore work and for support and that’s not even counting Izzy and Lucy (check out Lucy’s sup skills)

What? Your dog cant sup??

Check out most of the picks here….


And as soon as I figure out shutterflys fun interface…I will post the balance of the shots too!
