    Looks like itís just me this year. My other friend wont be able to make it. He wasnít on the list originally, just posting so Dr H can keep an accurate head count. That said if anybody needs a spot and doesnít have the rona, I should have some extra room at my campsite.

    List has been updated. Showers and t-storms are possible each day with Thursday being the largest chance. Most days are scattered throughout the week. Typical August weather. Itís always a crap shoot on where the heavy t-storms hit. Downstream no problem...upstream around Boone...dirty water takes a day or two to get to 221. River conditions are good right now at 487 cfs and about 2.5 feet on the gauge and itís been continuously dropping quickly since Thursday at midnight when it was at 3000 cfs and 5.5 feet!!!

    Be sure to pack a rain jacket with a hood or a waterproof hat (a Tilley is worth the $85 in a heavy rain) especially on your float. A dry bag for your phone and other items is essential as well. Thereís no tent or camper to hide in on the river. And the trees with heavy overhanging canopy can be hard to find.

    In observance of safe consumption, Dr H has recommended to the Judge to utilize those little bathroom style cups for distribution of medicinal treatment.

    I'm plotting leaving here Friday morning I doubt I'll make it for the Friday float.

    Give me a call if you get away early Mark. Maybe you can join us for dinner at Shatley Springs on Thursday.

    I have about a quarter jar of 2 year old medicine that has turned to a dark color that the good Dr. H gave me. If anyone would like to try some to see if aging has a positive affect I will bring it.

    ĎThe Judge posted somewhere that those breaking any of the regulations that came into affect after retiring would be sent up there for punishment.
