Late summer/fall run on the MO!
« on: August 02, 2016, 01:38:07 PM »
     Since Brandon mentioned to be invited to a Nebraska outing, and you guys always are, its just Tim and I have only had the Glastrons out once this year at Rathbun, and of course you were invited.   Now more to the point, we had a run on the river last year, cruised up to Cottonwood had lunch, floated back.   BTW, I will blow tubes up at Cottonwood this time if we need them!   Anyway, wondering what dates folks have available?  Should we do a Saturday or Sunday?   Make it a day trip only?  Overnight it at NP Dodge?   September is beautiful weather around here.   Let me know your thoughts and availability.

Don't feel bad Mike, Amber and I have not even had Phoenix out yet. Just has not been enough time. 

I will see what things look like after the minnesota trip and throw some dates out. Oh, might be going out with Trent on the Missouri by Nebraska City after Minnesota. I am sure we will figure it out.

Just a reminder to all, we plan to have a late summer/fall run on the Missouri River in similar fashion to last year.    Just a day trip, but if folks from farther away wish to attend your are welcome.   Camping is available, and I have spare bedrooms at the house.  If out of towners are coming, we likely would do a Saturday run.   Really need to set a date.   Please let me know who is interested and what your September weekends have room for a run.  I am open Saturday the 10th and 17th, then open both Sat and Sunday the 24th and 25th.   Run from NP Dodge park/marina to cottonwood(approx. 25 river miles), have lunch, then float back part of the way back to NP Dodge.   Given the current speed is 4-5 mph normally, a float trip can take better than 6 hours, so some folks break off early to head back if needed.   

Thanks all-Plugcheck

I'm interested.  The 10th or 24th work best for me.  We're camping the 17th.

Just a bump, have not heard back from anyone other than Tim.  Trent, Travis/Crystal, Brandon/Amber, anyone else interested?  We made the same run this past Sunday, weather was great, food was good.  Generally a day trip, but camping is available.  Let me know.

Thought about it Mike, but Barfly is going into storage Friday night.  I've got a basement to finish, as Brandon can attest to, and parts to collect for Spring.

     I'm going to toss out Saturday September 24th as our Nebraska run on the Missouri day.    NP Dodge park public ramps at 10:00 am.   We will run north to Cottonwood Marina, have lunch, then float back to NP Dodge. Maybe if everyone is running well, might head to downtown area.  Fuel and camping available.   Everyone welcome.   Ask if you need further info.   NP Dodge is just north of I-680 bridge crossing of the Missouri river.

Looks like I'm the only one going, and forecast is rain, some kind of year for boating huh?

Just cleaned of the cvz, ready to hook up, and the skies turned dark.  Looks like the Z is gonna stay in the garage.

We got poured on while hiking at niobrara state park this afternoon. We were going to head to ponca state park until we looked at radar. So we drove across gavins point dam and then to Yankton then home.
