This is basically a repeat of a trip from last year which took place on September 12, 2009

ALL TIMES ARE EXPRESSED AS EASTERN TIME ZONE




The plan is to paddle on Green River from Brownsville, KY to Joe's Farm. Here
is the address to the farm:

1321 American Rock Rd.
Windyville, KY 42210


Here is a little description of the property in Joe's words:
"...trip down the Green River from Brownsville to my Farm approximately 7
miles down stream. Those interested in Camping can camp at the farm Saturday
night. There are hiking trails rock house over hangs with some cliffs . The
farm is 243 acres of mostly hills and hollars. the farm borders Green river
for about 1/2 mile. I have a city water spicket , there is a old house and
barn but primitive camping basically. We can meet at the farm and I will bring
a 16 ft. trailer we can shuttle the kayak and canoe's on to Brownsville and
end at the farm.
The Farm address is 1321 American Rock Rd. Windyville Ky. This is 20 miles
south of Leitchfield and 25 miles North of Bowling Green. "


Directions according to Joe:

Ok Windyville is on a state map there used to be a store there, it is now
closed.

So if you map quest or GPS you need to put it in as 1321 American Rock Rd.
Brownsville as the city and the Zip code is 42210.
Mapquest gets pretty close.
Go down I-65 south to WK Parkway West ,Exit off WK Pkwy at
Leitchfield/Brownsville exit. Turn left at end of ramp, Take Hy. 259 about 6
miles it turns to the right,stay on Hwy. 259 go about 16 more miles until you
get to Hwy 70 on your right there are gas stations on both corners of Hwy 70
as you turn right. go about 2 1/2 miles to Hwy.655 on the left (this is
Windyville)
Locals call Hy. 655 Segal Rd. Go 1 mile to American Rock Rd. it is on the left
it is 1.4 mile down to the Farm drive is on the Right. A big black mail box
with 1321 and Cissell on it. It is 2000 ft. down to the house you will go thru
a metal gate soon after you start down the drive. We can park between the
house and the barn to the left side for ease of parking. People can decide
where they want to camp. There is a nice flat area beside the house or if
people want down by the river or a rock over hang.

This is expected to be about a 5-6 hour paddle on flatwater.
Please use Message Board and comments section to discuss camping/carpool
preparations.
