Great pictures Mike. Always fun to look back and remember the trip.
Mike and I arrived around noon on Friday and did a Loop run. When were were done and changed into dry clothes we ran into Marybeth and Neil. They had shown up unexpectedly and they got on and ran a loop run also so Marybeth could get in some boat time before the full run on Saturday.
Mike and I headed out to set up camp on the group site Neil had reserved for everyone. Well when we checked in they told us that we were going to be on site #229 Friday night and then have to move our stuff to site #230 for Saturday. Huh ? Say What ? I tried my best to talk them into working out what was obviously a mix up but it was no use. Saturday morning we picked up our tents and stuff and moved them to the other site as the group that was there was clearing out.
Just a word about the group sites. Very nice. Lots of small flat areas to set up tents. It cost each of us about $5 a night since each night we split the $31 a night fee between 5 or 6 people.
I was very sorry I had to miss Saturday's run. I was really looking forward to being along on Marybeth and Ian's fiirst time down the LY... instead I was stuck at the putin waiting on a buyer for Jill's Project X who was to show up around 11:30, (that I could have dealt with and possibly puton after the group and caught up by the end of the loop) but he ran into some money problems and didn't show up until around 1. Too late for me to want to chance getting on and maybe not catching the group. So I missed it. I got to hear all about it over dinner at the Fall's City Pub that night.
BTW MB and Ian did great.
Sunday's run went well. We got on early and ran the river with a small group of about 7. We picked up a buddy for Mike Moyer to play with at the end of hte loop. He needed a group and a ride back from the takeout after his original boating partner bailed on him. He was in a JK Rockstar so since he was a Jackson fan he was accepted into our group without question !!! HA !!
We got on early, around 9:30, and that allowed us to get in a good run and still get headed for home by 2:30 which got us home with some time to unpack.
Another great LY trip in the books.
