“There' still time to sign up for this one.”
“Guys I will be on vacation next week and not be able to post still have 2 empty kayaks if someone needs a boat”
“This is a trip I've been threatening to do for a few years now. Does Indiana require yaks to be licensed? My Ohio license is expired.”
I'll be hiking In
“coyote 820, when you plan on being at camp”
“Nigal-I don't think you need to have a license.
Oldog-I think we will be at the campsite between noon and 1 PM.”
“yes nigal you're supposed to have a non-motarized DNR lake permit-they are cheap at least-about 7-10$. Coyote will probably know of some places to get one.
You can probably order online from the indiana dept of natural resources.
“Attila is correct! I talked with Coyote this morning,he's out on a boy scout trip, and he said that the boat license is $5. You can get one at any state park.”
“Dang it. The boss, er, wife says We have a party we have to go to. :(”
“Oldog we will be at the Campsite between 12:00 and 1:00 there was a pinic table at one of the campsites when you get to the lake turn North if you get there before we try and find something with some good hammock trees.
Let's try and use this thread as it will go to the trail talk page”
“Well everything is a go for next weekend me and otis went down to Crooked Creek Ramp and put in and floated almost up to the Penn. and then back the Parking Lot at the boat ramp the water level is out of the Parking Lot and the lake is a good level to park I'm sure we will be able to find a good place to camp on saturday
I still have a couple of kayaks if someone wants to borrow one.”
“Turn North ? there are a lot of nice tree covered camp sites South also, I'll probably be South, but I'll look North also. I'm bringing Bosco the Wonder Dog”
“I'm glad you're bring Bosco! Looking forward to seeing you both.”
“Are we doing anything special in the way of food on Saturday night since we are bringing stuff by boat? I can bring my dutch oven and fix something if anyone is interested. I did apple cobbler last weekend and I think it went over well. Let me know.”
“Well I was going to bring my fish fryer and maybe we could catch some fish and cook them up.
But I have heard fishing on the lake is hard because of the lake being twice the size and hard to find fish.
How about bring a grate and everyone bring steak or chicken what every you like and we'll cook it over the fire maybe baked potato
Oldag there is some nice places down to the south with even a table or two down there.
We can bring alot more in the boats.Any ideas?”
is this rain or shine
“coyote , I'll be there unless its raining when I get up on Saturday, If you have room I'll take a couple chicken legs and a tator
I'll pay you when you get there”
“Rain should not be a problem LIGHTING on the other hand in a canoe could be.I have not seen the weather yet I know the lake was very muddy Sunday I'll bring 4-5 gal. of water with me”
“I can't believe it. I just realized that I'm on call this weekend. I can't go. :(”
“looks like rain is expected-Im down as long as Coyote is.
“Attila I'm still planning on going hopefully the weather forcast are wrong as usual and we'll be fine.”
“judging by the weather so far this year, I doubt it will be wrong (rain). but Im still in, just will wait and see about bringing Maximus along.”
“Attila another buddy is going too what we could do is to shorten the trip and put in at Cutright's off of 446 and still camp at the same spot then if we get on Sunday and have some bad storms to deal with we would only need to paddle 1 mile to get back to the truck.We could set up camp and then paddle where ever we could take Maximus down to Patton Cave you can paddle right up to it now.Or go wherever.Oldog and us are it Windigrrl said Marapoisa broke her wrist”
“Well I guess it depends how hard the rain might come down. If its lookin ugly by fridays forcast, then the shorter trip will be better. If its not lookin so bad, then the longer trip would work.
Mariposa get well soon.and go easy on the typing.”
“coyote I got your message tonite but couldnt call back till after 10. so Ill call you tomorrow late morning
-Im still down.
“Looks like we are in for a stormy weekend here in Indiana check for posts in the morning as we may need to change Campsite and Put In Place I will try and get on aroung 7am and we'll see what it looks like”
Iooks like rain
“Bosco and I are out of this one , If you guys go ,have a good one
I just got off the weather channel looks like it's raining down at Deam presently”
“forcast called for high winds,hail, and tornadoe chance from indy and south of.”
“Oldog we all bailed for the weather which has not hit up here all day.That weather man got us again.But I have got some good BROWNIE POINTS today which I will soon use on another Adventure.See You All”
“What’s all of this bailing stuff??
Gee whiz!! I can remember a time when we went no matter what!! Most of the time it ended up being a good time even if it rained a little!!
Now what would happen if you guys were in Alaska?? Surely you wouldn’t bail up there??
Guess were all just getting old……….
See ya later.
“Randall we are all getting GUNSHY around here after we had the HUNDRED YEAR FLOOD.The weather man lied again.”
“thats the thaing about doing those long hikes once you commented its rain or shine but on a hike as close as the Deam its just easier to bail, besides the Wonder Dog freaks out in the thunder
when you guys drop your cars off here Don't park behind the Belair park to the right by the other door”
Will do!! Park to the right. The key will be under the drivers seat. Thanks again for your help!! Yee Haw!! Alaska here we come!!!
See ya later.
