Thomas landing is not a bad place to meet, plus they have fuel their if anyones needs any, also polluted waters is just south of their, and their is plenty of area for every one to meet and hang out, and i mean everyone. Then their is also the milk bus with plenty of shade. I do not suggest everyone meeting at the ridge, if you get to many boats their, it can become a pain in the a**. I am voting for polluted waters. :D

Polluted waters is just South of Thomas landing. Their is plenty of shade trees and plenty of area to park and hang out. It does not matter one way or the other to me. I was just thinking of the fact that Thomas landing does not have a hugh area to park, and i know from experience when i stayed their, when you get a lot of boats their, all the cabins end up gettong blown real bad.

I think eveyone should get around 10 am, this gives everyone time to get up, get their stuff together, and get there.

First monthly run!

Post by basketcase0302 »

Richard,

Can you or somebody else please post some GPS coordinates for those of us that are coming from out of town? I know where Thomas Landing is but not "polluted waters".

The wife, son and I should get there later Friday night and be able to make it for 10 with good directions.

Too bad we don't have a big "Southern Airboat" flag or sign for all to see!

Can you drive in and launch at polluted waters or is best to launch at thomas landing. Remember it is memorial day weekend so thomas landing is gonna be jumpin. The lady at thomas landin doesnt mind if you launch dry so that helps with the parkin if your boat is up for it.

Welcome back croc1.

cntry141iq & richard, I was wondering the same thing about Polluted Waters. I just mentioned Thomas Landing to have a place to launch airboats.

cchardt, it's looking like that may be the case right now.

Polluted water has no place to launch from, the closes plce to launch is Thomas Landing, or River Ranch boat ramp on the norht side about a mile south of Thomas Landing.

Don't bet on the River Ranch boat landing. They have put up new locks and gates to keep people out that are not members. How long it will last I have now clue. Polluted water is easy to find, just ride the lake edge south on the west side and you will pass a very large spoil Island like 25 feet in the air. Just south of that and as the lake starts to bend to the east your their. I have some GPS numbers I can pull off the hand held today but they are way back in the woods where we found out from the law it was the wrong place to be :roll:

Sorry to hear about your boat cntry141iq. It's a bummer to be broke down at any time, but not running on Memorial Day Weekend is a little worse than normal.

Well I said I would get the GPS numbers off the handheld to help a couple of people out but the thing won't let me look at the waypoints. It turns on, gets a fix, but shuts itself off when you try to access the waypoints. :cry: Sorry but it won't be hard to find polluted water. Hope to be there on Saturday.

Well I'll be working on my boat this weekend, but I wanted to participate someway so I made this map for those of you that have never rode this area.

I've located some of the local spots, but I also know I've left some out. If I'm off with some of my markers, someone please let me know.

This map should print out good on standard 8 1/2X11 paper.

Here's the link: http://www.southernairboat.com/map.htm
