Eric has offered to host yet another trip on the Green River, with primitive camping at his farm!! This is always a popular trip with a huge turnout. The paddling pace is very casual, if not holding on to a motor boat. ALL TIMES ARE EXPRESSED AS EASTERN TIME ZONEThe plan is to paddle on Green River from Brownsville, KY to Eric's Farm.

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