Id like to go out friday night and sleep in the new camp for the first time but we probably cant make it out till Saturday morning sometime hopefully early.
Were going out on Friday morning early. I want to mow again. I'll run a tape measure on the track again and make sure the markers are up and correct. :D I'm gonna run up and mow the weir at the 39mm too. its an awesome swimming hole and it's close! 8)

Gonna be hot, need to be able to go to tower for a cool down. Unless we get a sh$t load of rain the the tower is out. Looks like with this depression we might get some but not sure if that will be enough.

Happy Harold I wish I could make it for the 4 weekend but it got down to the wire and the water wasn't looking good. so I 'am going to Sarasota with the girl friend, she rented a mansion on the beach, and I mean a mansion,, 9 k a month. But I would still rather be at my camp she can have that beach. But I guess I'll tough it out for a few days then I'm coming back to good old Ft. Misery, hopefully I cam make down the next weekend or the one after that. :rebel:

I think he wanted to know exactly where the TNT will be. I wanted to clarify this as well. I was assuming it will be at the hilton?

It appears they will be having their festivities in front of Camp 9-1/2. Best way to get there is at MM35 ramp, which is the fire station. When you launch at the ramp, go south on the trail and take the first right. That will take you straight to where they are talking about. You can get a good idea of where it is by looking at it from Google Earth. The ramp is 10 miles west of US 27. You will see the trail heading south from the ramp and the trail that cuts off to the right (west). Have fun. Wish we could catch up there but I'll be in Daytona.

Last year they were at possum head which is what I think every one is talking about. Some one correct me if I'm wrong.

If there was any doubt about water before, there's no doubt anymore. Man, did it rain today. Holy Sheet!!

gator bait; one of the boys ran down to the landing in his car. said there wasn't a drop of water. guess its just raining in the wrong spot for us. my new boat hasn't been in the water yet, so guess i'll wait couple more weeks. have fun on your week end.

Is there enough water to run from 40 mile bend out to the race track? We have 6 or 7 boats heading out Saturday morning.
