Update 2023-01-04: Pictures: Griffis to Fargo, Suwannee River 2022-12-29.
Come help chainsaw some deadfalls on a longish Suwannee River paddle.
You do not have to actually use a chainsaw, but if you’ve got one and know how to use it in a boat, bring it along.
The days are short, so be at Fargo Ramp by 8AM, so we can do a reverse shuttle, carrying the boats up to Griffis Fish Camp. The weather prediction is sunny and warm: low 51, high 71.
When: Gather 8 AM, launch 8:30 AM, end 4:30 PM, Thursday, December 29, 2022
Put In: Griffis Fish Camp
Take Out: Fargo Ramp
Free: This outing is free to everyone because it is a cleanup.
However, bring $2 in cash for the put-in fee at Griffis Fish Camp.
