    I'm going to scrub as well. My sit-on-top is not known for being dry. Perhaps I'll test plugging the drain holes under more controlled circumstances today.

      Great weather, go figure. This just hit me, going to try blocking those holes using sponges and see how that works out.

      The report Claude sent out said there were white caps on the water, temp was warm, did see two bald eagles, lots of turtles and other wild life.

    I am canceling. There is a regular group besides Austin Area Paddlers that faithfully attends.

    Well...the wind could be a challenge. Now what....thinking it over.

    • BrianM

      Wind coming from the south west so not always but mostly(?) with us (I assume we are going east w/the current). What's Claude's deal, is he doing this no matter what?

    Yeah, this weekend is better suited for working on your boat than taking it out. I've got some sanding and varnishing to do. That's better than paddling against 20 mph winds all day.

  • Robert B.

    looks like Saturday wind will be gusting 15 to 25 MPH, not too pleasant on the water, Sorry will try some other time,

    What are you surveying (i.e. counting birds, taking water samples, etc.)? Are you asking participants to help with the survey, or would we be just tagging along?

    January 1, 2014

    • Cathy K.

      Claude records birds and emails group a report. Bring lunch. You can engage with spotting, discussion and counting. I am learning to appreciate the beauty.

    Any reason *not* to bring a dog (see profile pic)?

    December 31, 2013

    • Cathy K.

      As long as your dog doesn't bark at wildlife.

    Private location. Claude's been doing this for a while so...he has the connections.

    December 31, 2013

  • Robert B.

    what is Green Ranch ? is it a private or public location?

    December 31, 2013

  • Cathy K.

    Note correction. Time is 8:45 am - 5 pm.

    I have been on this trip and this is also my favorite section of the river. This is 92nd monthly survey lead by Claude Morris.
