    Your right Kelly, and you never know it can change to the second. I will tell you.. I'm tired already of the rain we've been getting every day.

    Goes to show Forcasters are like doctors; ask three for a forecast and you get three different answers. My forecaster says there is 10% chance in the morning and early afternoon going to 40% chance later in the afternoon back down to 10% in the evening and a heat index of 100deg.

    Raul, I've been tubing several times there. Bring Sun screen,hat to wear. Normally, we bring a cooler with drinks, sandwiches and snacks to eat while on the sandbar. I usually wear water shoes or sandals which can be taken off once on the tube. I usually bring extra clothes to change into afterwards but leave it in the car. As in a Towel you can have one for afterwards but really don't need it on the tube. Also, does everyone know the rain chance is 50 percent for this coming saturday?

    Kelly,I will be there at 9am at the wine market and we can decide to car pool or caravan. Stay dry!

    July 2, 2012

  • Kelly S.

    @ Charlie kates I'm up for carpooling or at the very least caravan. My usual meeting spot for such things is the wine market parking lot on gause. How about meet at 9am?
    @ Kerri You and your 20 cousins are more than welcome to join. My only pet peev is make sure everyone at least take out of the river what you put in. ie beer cans and other trash.

    July 1, 2012

  • Kerri

    July 1, 2012

  • Charlie

    I'm still not 100 % sure I can attend, but if I do I will be open to carpooling. I live in Harahan.

    Anyone like to car pool from Slidell?

    The website says: "Children must be at least 5 years old to go tubing, canoeing, or kayaking." So you may want to double-check with them if you want to bring the kiddies.

    I do not recommend talking a child that young on a tubing trip. Several hours in the heat and sun is no place for a young child that may get restless. I'm not familiar with that part of the river, but there is an element of danger on these trips.

    Sky, that's up to you. There are no lifeguards but you're on a slow-moving river. I'm debating on whether to come with my 4-yr-old. You're on the river for several hours with hardly any shade. I know she'd probably get bored. But you're either in a canoe, tube, or one of their cooler-floats (which is what I thought about letting my daughter ride in).

    Does anyone think this event is safe enough for me to bring my 21month old toddler?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
