No I was told this was where the meet up was if you didn't camp. But it's the wrong info. I have emailed and PM with no replies. It's a different club so that might be why I cant get the info.
Paddle is suppose to be Hodenplye to Red Bridge but now I see it says 1:00. RSVP only!?

Have you seen any of the photos from the Brown Bridge dam removal on the Boardman yet? Starting to reclaim some nice rapids already! I will try to post photos one of these days, they're on my work computer.

Once all of those dams are out it's going to be one hell of a nice float. Brown Bridge is the most upstream so by next spring we're going to be able to start well above Brown and float down to the Keystone rapids. The dam below the Keystone rapids is the next scheduled removal.

No I haven't. I did the Boardman only once ,my first real trip.
I can't afford, a lot so when there is something close to me, I go.

Didn't paddle the Manistee. Took a newbie on the Pine. Skookum to Silver Creek campground, he kept saying this is wild this river is crazy. He canoes the Muskegon:).

Can't wait to get back on the Pine and see what has changed with all this water, I remember a few years ago after all the flooding it was one of our most fun trips!!

I'm sure the flooding is going to happen 2-3 rain forecasted. I did get my parking permit, for Huron Manistee Forest. But I do not think I'm physically able to sit and paddle. Nor load and unload.

WHITE WATER is not FLOOD WATER
If you must venture out into the waters now, use caution for flood waters are dangerous and I would like to paddle with you all sometime.
ALWAYS=BE SAFE ON THE WATER, RESPECT THE WATER
