Final Details

As you know, the RRCC never looks at the weather report until the Wednesday before a trip.  This is a Saturday-to-Monday trip and Thursday is the new Wednesday.  Therefore, if you looked today you saw it's supposed to be 75 and partly cloudy this weekend. 

You may have also seen this happening right now:

So while you were packing your shorts and sunglasses for Sunday's paddle, we've been trying to figure out what this is going to do to our river.   Normally it would be peaking about two days after a big rainfall and this storm could be worrisome.  But we are so far upstream on this trip I don't think it's going to be affected very much.  In fact, there are only a few miles of river between us and Normandy Dam, plus the mill dam itself (at our put-in) will also have some flood control effect.  The main thing though, is there just isn't enough river above us to have a bunch of swollen creeks pouring in and flooding the river.   We will see though.  Garrison Fork might be like the Ocoee.

The shuttle is extremely complicated now what with our deadlines for being on the river, leaving a car at every bridge in Bedford County, and Jack arriving just in time to jump in a canoe.  Plus Tim still doesn't even know if he can go or not.  If he is out, he will let Rob and Jim know on Friday and deliver the coffee supplies, Bloody Marys and Screwdrivers to the guys in the driveway Saturday morning.   Regardless of who's going and when, the trailer is loaded and ready to be hooked up.  

Don't forget:

-  9:00 am in my driveway
-  BYO cups, plates and utensils
- No plastic water bottles
-  Wake up Ian

See you at the whiskey factory.

For sexcam a lot of things at once -- but with a few screenshots of the Black Berry Play Book is a tablet that will come close to that transition that takes place in chapter 33.
It's cute, and maybe some weird demographic that appreciates animated transitions more than rapid and easy data input will appreciate it more, but it doesn't stink any less now.
Because of this, with the upper one protruding a little bit more.
