    FYI - I live 5 minutes from here. There is a large dirt parking lot just across the street from the entrance to DRT - it's a public lot used for residents that walk the canal, bike, etc. Tho, you'll just have to walk up their drive. It may fill up during the day ..but should still be fairly open by 11:00am.

    Can't see spending this much $ on parking/tubing, etc. You could also meet up there...leave a couple of cars there...and just bring one up to lesson parking fees. C u floating by!
