Operation Airboat

Postby vickchick5 » Thu Jan 24, 2008 3:50 pm

Skeeter-

I have "tons" of good strong boxes I'll be bringing.
A huge supply of Airboating Magazine back issues from Laurie, and other goodies. My plan is to be there about 8:30 Sat. morning.

If you want/need the boxes earlier I can possibly get out to Mims in the late morning to early afternoon tomorrow......................let me know. My brother lives in Lake Harney Woods, I can drop them there at his house or meet you somewhere like the Jolly Gator, once again if you want the boxes early to get taping up.
Most are broke down nicely. The ones I got from school are not broke down, strong thick boxes.........

Wonder if the water came up at all @ Loughmans with all this rain, I know the creek I live on (Big Econ) was about to dry up. Now it is about to burst over the banks. Probably need tons of rain to get Loughmans back to normal but every bit helps :lol:

There was water is the pastures south of HWY 50 this morning, not alot but it was wet.

Cracker, i live about a 1/4 mile off the econ, south of 50. Been here since 1965, never seen the river dry up but it does get mighty slim. plenty of shallow sand bars in Seminole county last week.

Vicki 830 will be just fine.The biggest reason for running north from Loughman's is that they can use the business,with as slow as it has been lately and with everything Bobby does for us in the AB community I figured it best.

10-4 Deep sea, I live on the North side of 50. Seen it get so low (in these parts) it looks like someone turned a garden hose on and thats it. Fishin sure is fun when the crick is low and those deep corners are the only place holding water.

Now the water is way out of the banks On the Big Econ, waters gotta be coming up on the St Johns soon.
Riding will be great.
North should be a good ride skeeter, hopefully there is some of that skinny water in the pastures.

Skeeter & Seminole Club-"weehaw" you guys rock!

So much fun, eventhough we didn't ride, the fellowship was GREAT! Thanks again to LL and Bobby for a use of the facility and participation in Operation Airboat III!

Thanks to EVERYONE who participated and donated items. I think we packed 'em extra special, personal and tight this time!!

The only thing I'd like to know is who is writing an article for Marsh Rider? Matt? Charity? I'll get one written up for Airboating Magazine, and all who took pictures, PLEASE share and send. I have quite a few as did my sister in law, but I know some others were snappin' away! THANKS!!
