OK ALL I AM BACK.
EVERYONE LEFT JUST IN THE NICK OF TIME JUST AS EVERYONE LEFT IT DUMPED AND DUMBED RAIN ALL DAY AND INTO THE NIGHT. .
Well it was a good float with old friends and new friends .We couldn't ask for a better group of people to hang out with.the weather was fairly good for Saturday the river was at ideal level it made all the best rapids even better.It was a bit nerve
racking for the first mile trying to teach a couple of people how to paddle.But after a couple of unforeeseen swims we got to gether and did a paddler partner swaps and for the rest of the day.It all worked outGiGi's neice took to a kayak like a duck to water.I was imprested I just showed her a couple of basic kayak paddle's and BOOM she got right off the bat.She turned out to be a good kayak paddler.Dena and her friend Carrol did a great job Too since the both of them only padded a canoe only once before.They ran all the rapids like the have been paddlen for years Even when they got hung up and a log jam they held they're cool untill we got them off with out flipping an going for a swim My hats off to them. .Saturday the weather was not as we would have liked it drizzlely over cast with a bit of rain.but it did not stop us from having a good time.The upper section of the North Fork was a good float we got GiGi in Gina's kayak and her neice in Billys kayak even thou GiGi never even paddled a kayak before she tryed her best even thou she went for a swim 3 time's it did not faze her at all.She did a good job paddling a white water play boat kayak(a very diffacult boat to paddle even for me)She went in circles for a bit but after a while she got it down. Well as soon as I get a chance I will down load photos and if any one has photo's I will give them permision to up load them.But for right now I am going to take a long hot shower and take a nap.Bryon

Awesome! I am glad you had a safe and fun float! Sounds like you have created some new paddlers for assisting you with future float trainings!

Theresa and I are looking at some dates for a float on the Meramec River out of Sullivan MO. The weekend would include a pig roast. We are trying to see how many folks would be interested before securing the date with the resort. We are looking at the weekend of 7/31-8/1 or 8/14-8/15 or 8/21-8/22. The weekend of July 31 we would be limited to tent and RV camping. We are looking for some feedback to see how many may be interested.

Bryan, I actually have quite a few pics from our recent float, but have no idea how, or where to post them. I'll be glad to put em up if you'll point me in the right direction, and probaly coach me a bit as well, duh, lol.
I'd love to put together another float trip before long, as it seems we're finding a group of serious floaters do exist here, and some that actually like getting away from all the drunken teenagers and truly enjoy the beauty of the rivers,... on the river, not just sitting on the banks, lol.
If you know of any, please give me a heads up, and I'll be there.
Who's up for the Current, Jacks Fork (tubing anyone?), or the Eleven point?
Maybe the Buffalo?
