    Looks like I am going to sit this one out. After looking at the River Charts and the river jumping 7 ft not too sure I wanna really fight the current and trash Saturday. I wish everyone good luck and hope you guys raise a ton of money.......

    It actually raised 9 feet yesterday I think, cresting soon at 2 more feet. The trash ought to be gone by the weekend.

    I am heading there after work today, I would imagine the river is loaded with tree trunks, if it's too bad we won't launch. But regardless the trash should be gone by the weekend I would think.

    Report later...........

    I am sitting in the boat right now at WS. In a cutback to dodge all the trees, still dealing with a lot of swirling trash in our lines. The trip back upstream should be interesting. Pray for my transducers, we are calling it quits.

    I talked to Bryan. He isnt around a computer so he asked me to post the following. We discussed postponing untill May 23 to give the river time to settle down. We would like everyones opinion on this matter. Safety is of the utmost concern.
