Kayak the Colorado, Bastrop TX June 25, 2015

One spot left!

Let's try this again!

I will be getting to Fisherman's Park in Bastrop on Thursday, June 25 at about 6pm and shoving off around 6:30pm. It will take 2 to 3 hours to float the 4 miles to the pickup spot.

I have 7 kayaks, so I have space for 6 other floaters to join me. I will drop the kayaks (and boaters) at the park, take the tow vehicle to the pickup point, and catch a ride back to the park.

If you have your own boat I'm game for more to join, and I can help with transport.

I'm thinking that I will pack a few sandwiches for dinner and we can stop on the island halfway through the trip.

Post up if you are in.

In on my boats:
1. RollingJ
2. Wife Of Vinny
3. JT
4. O_matic
5. Super D, my son
6. SpirtAtBay
7.

In on their own boats:
1: MotoTex
2: MotorcycleBelle
3: Vinny
4: Viffer07
5: Viffrer07's +1
6: Stingray?

Sounds good, guys.

I'll hold a boat for your wife Vinny. Of course, if things change and you can't make it let me know to open the spot back up.

Mellow. Almost flat. There are sometimes spiders in the trees though.

That all depends on the type of fence.

This then begs the questions,

Why did you picket?

Were you wrought, ironing out the choices?

I'm a strong "maybe" on this. Closing on a car for my daughter that day but thinking I'll be done by then. I have my own kayak and a truck to help shuttle with if needed.

Fantastic Idea!

I'm In, as long as there is still a boat and gear available.

I've got a boat but it's in San Marcos and my truck is in the body shop

Is Fisherman's Park an OK spot to park a motorcycle for a few hours?

The last spot was taken by my son, unless you have your own boat.

I'll see you all tomorrow!
