It appears to me that airboat4fun has done alot of work to put this ride together. I personally would like to thank him for all the work. Especially the directions cause my dumb a$$ would probably get lost without them.

1 week to go

Postby airboat4fun » Mon Feb 05, 2007 9:22 am

No need to thank me just show up and have a good time with us. It's always more fun with friends. Speaking of more fun and friends, lets hear from those who plan to ride. Again I will ask who plans to ride for the day, what time do you want to get back to the ramp, who plans to stay for the sat. night ride, maybe do some froggin in the water we have left.

Now for the latest water update with 1 week to go. Bravo and I went out yesterday to test drive his boat (he just put on new poly and freshened her up, I thought it did real well).
The water is continuing to drop. There is still water in the main trail, but not much and the mud is starting to build up on the sides. Some of the mud patches are dry enough to start to sprout new grass on em. The only place I may see a problem is the last leg of the trip, from Bergerons back to the ramp. It is still dry around Bergerons and there were dry patches in the Governors Trail (the trail I wanted to come back on). We may need to take the trail back to Andrews ave and then the boat ramp. Either way it looks like there will enough water to do the run. I will be out Friday night and will let everybody know what it's like when we meet at the MM35 boat ramp Saturday morning.

Randy, I may be the wet blanket again regarding time. We have obligations back in Jupiter the require us to be of the water around 4. If this poses a problem for others, I understand and will try to make other arangements.

You can stay at our place in Jupiter if your time limit runs out on your Kitchen pass and you don't make it back in time :P

communication

Postby airboat4fun » Mon Feb 05, 2007 1:15 pm

Lets not talk about wet blankets, I think Cntry and Stan have a story from the previous Glades run, Larry & the rest of the group had another.

Florida Cracker, That's exactly why I asked.
We can plan for it here instead of finding out while we are out there.
Anybody else.

I swear I won't tell the FWC, IRS, FBI, Americas Most Wanted, GreenPeace, your-EX, or anybody else where you are going to be that day.
I just want everybody to have a good time and get back safely.

Hey Sniper, I don't know if you helping the situation or adding to it :lol:, but I appreciate the offer (almost needed it after the last ride). Actually, my wife and 3 of my kids are hoping to go. However, that evening my daughter is hooking up with a girlfriend and my older daughter to head out of town. If my wife makes it down for the ride, it will be only her third time out. Her other two outing have not be near as long, I need to be careful not to overdo it with her, or she may not make another one. :cry:


BTW - it would be great if you can make it down. I'm sure if Randy doesn't have room, someone else will.

Hey ab4fun, looks like we are going to be able to make it. If any one needs a ride we should have space. Looking forward to meeting everyone.

keep em comin

Postby airboat4fun » Mon Feb 05, 2007 8:05 pm

Alright now this thing is looking better all the time.

Sniper, If you are willing to make the 1000 mile haul and meet us at the ramp I will see to it you have a seat. I have a friend and his son who will ride on my boat also, I'll put the jump seat on the front. That's seating for 5 plus me.

who else is coming?

Postby Red Dwarf » Mon Feb 05, 2007 8:17 pm

I wish I was gonna make it. The way my eyes are I seriously doubt I will be boating in the next week, maybe longer.
I already hit your boat once Randy, don't wanna make it twice :shock:

Y'all have fun and be safe

still makin plans

Postby airboat4fun » Wed Feb 07, 2007 7:13 pm

Hey everybody, just a couple days 'till the run and I'm askin again.
Is there anybody (other than Florida Cracker at 4pm) that wants/needs to get back, and doesn't know the way?
Some of the folks I've heard are coming should know their way around, to help get the others back.
I guess we'll see who shows on sat and take it from there.

How many plan on doing a lil' froggin?
For those who do I would suggest tryin your luck as little farther south, where there is more water.

How many just wanna hang out by a fire, share some stories, and maybe indulge a little sat.nite?

I haven't heard from anyone about lunch. (except safari rick who is bringin his killer shrimp) I will presume everybody else is going to fend for themselves, country boys will survive.
If I don't hear from anyone before I hit the store, I am only gonna bring a few burgers and dogs with chips for those in my lil group. I will still have the grill and charcoal if anybody else needs it.

The weather is lookin good and the water is rite, it should be a good time in the Glades.

I will be bringing stuff for my group to eat plus a little incase anyone else runs short. I wont have a grill so I hope I can borrow some grill space. I should also have some space on my boat if needed.
Looking forward to Sat.

I'm gonna meet everyone at the ramp.
We'll ride all day, and hang after dark.
Frog'in or no frog'in. Whatever evryone want's to do.

I'm gonna bring some burgers, and a small tailgait'in grill.
Anyones welcome to a burger while they last, or can flip thier own on my grill.

Look'in forward to this ride. It should be a good one.

I've got a few calls this week AB4fun.
I think there will be at least five more boats than you may know right now.

Looks like I got most of my "issues" solved and will make the ride.

Probably arrive at the ramp sometime between 10am and noon.

Will catch up with the group sometime during the day.

Will be staying to frog for a while.

Will be at least 4 boats, maybe 6.

Hope to see y'all in the glades!

We are sitting at the Crossroads camp in 3A and loving the Sprint broadband card! The water is definitely low but not a problem running. Met Airboat4fun as we were putting in at the ramp and looking forward to riding with everyone tomorrow. :D
