On our second try, we doubled our cell phones and got the exact route and weekend we want. So it is official. The 2010 Fall Trip will be the weekend of November 11 - 14 (leaving after work on Thursday the 11th, returning very late on Sunday the 14th).
Our permit is for Route #5 on the Green Trail. See this map.
Put-in: Kingfisher Landing
First night: Bluff Lake shelter
Second night: Floyd's Island
Take-out: Stephen Foster State Park
When we put in at Kingfisher Landing on Friday, the 12th, we have to be in our canoes by 10:00 am Eastern Time. Water level permitting, we will have a very doable 8 mile paddle through Durdin Prairie and should arrive at Bluff Lake with plenty of daylight.
Here as some pictures of the Bluff Lake platform:
Can't wait to see Mullowney try to sneak off to his tent on this one.
Here's the Bluff Lake Throne Room.
Note to cooks: Let's eighty-six the Chili Verde this trip.
