    Dam to Dam 2013

    Okay it's time to start a thread and get this thing rolling. Maybe this is the wrong forum but it seems to exceed my search ability to find the right place.

    Only a little more than a month away.
    No I did not name my boat after that piece of &&%^^** Matthew McConaughey, Kate Hudson movie.

    Can someone explain the run.

    Do we just pull in at the dam and say "let's go to the other dam" or what?

    No it's just a leisurely stroll from the dam to a several places along the way. They normally stop into each place for a hour or so. Defiantly a laid back take your time sorta thing.

    The pre-run "meeting" is at Paradise Friday night. Always a good time!

    Saturday morning we all usually meet for breakfast at Miller's around 8-8:30 and take off from there. A few stops along the way to Truman dam, hopefully, around 6-7. Raft up for a bit and head to Warsaw docks. Dinner in town, a few adult beverages and call it a night.

    Sunday morning, meet at the docks around 8ish and head downstream with a breakfast stop.

    Of course, anyone can run as much or as little as they want.

    So... shouldn't it be called "Millers to Dam"?

    For some....

    There are a few that start at the dam and meet up at Millers and there are a few that travel downstream a ways to get to Millers. It's all good!
