    I know it is getting late in more ways than one. Late at night and
    maybe too late to get onboard for the Sandhill Crane trip? I have been watching the Rowe Crane Cam and am getting more excited about it. If you can work me in would you give me a call?

      Thank you for the note Michael. I have been watching the Rowe Crane Cam every day and get all fired up about getting up there. But it looks like rain so don't know what to do. Maybe it will not be so bad, but guess I will pass. Thank you for the offer. Hope you can still make it.

      Ok, very well. No rain forecasted for the afternoon in Kearney. I will stick with the original plan unless someone else contracts me.

    Thank you to Sam and Mike for joining the conference to discuss plans of the Sandhill crane photo shoot. My vehicle can comfortably hold 6 adults. So far, I have Mike, Sam and Cheryl carpooling with me. (Splitting the cost of gas.)
    Brian and Jeff - we are going to be meeting at Valentino's off 102nd and Maple at 9:45am this Saturday if you want to catch a ride. We will be picking up Sam on the way.
    We plan to arrive in Kearney by 12:30pm. Eat lunch. (Purchased individually) Then, shoot in Kearney and at the Kearney bridge.
    Eat dinner before we go to the sanctuary.
    We will head over to Rowe's Sanctuary by 5:00P, where we will check in and walk to our blind.
    Dress in comfortable layers, as it will get chilly in the evening as the sunsets, but we will be in a blind so it may get a warmer inside.
    Wear comfortable walking shoes that can get muddy.
    We will return back to Omaha by 9:30/10:00PM. (Maybe a little later) Bring your tripod.
    Call me [masked] w/ questions.

    OH NO! I double booked this conference with my son's wrestling banquet, since we would have some late comers, is anyone opposed to joining the conference tomorrow night at 7P instead?

    The blind I went last year fit about 20 people. Yes, they have multiple blinds. We are not staying overnight, leaving in the morning coming back late night

    March 1, 2013

  • Lindsey K.

    Do they have a different blind than what is advertised on their site? It sounds like this is an overnight thing that fits only two people. Can you provide anymore details about the trip?

    March 1, 2013

  • Heidi C.

    Ok, the date is firm and I have a blind reserved. There is still room to share the blind but I would need RSVP and payment before the end of the week. Please contact me ASAP. [masked]

    We are either carpooling/caravaning outnto Kearney. I have 6 RSVPs so far, and can fit up to 6 adults (comfortably) in my car. We can split cost of gas which will make the trip cheaper. I am going to call and reserve our spots today. We will have one more meeting prior to heading out there to firm up our plans.
