The Salty Snapper pop-up paddle
this Saturday may be a bit truncated, due to water levels getting low.
We may paddle only from Langdale Park Boat Ramp to the Salty Snapper,
because the second leg on to Troupville Boat Ramp is getting too low.
Expedition leader Bobby McKenzie will post updates on the
and the meetup,
and we’ll blog final status before the paddle.
Bobby’s out paddling the route right now.

Looks like you can shuttle by scheduling with the new
Valdosta on-demand minibus transit service
for a $2 ride back from the Salty Snapper to Langdale Park Boat Ramp.
Tuesday morning, Suwannee Riverkeeper was talking about this paddle with Scott James on his 92.1 FM radio show.
