If anyone would like to do Roger's river trip but doesn't have a kayak...let me 
know...I'll find a spare to bring complete with life jacket, paddle and seat.  
Just bring your own refreshments.

Roger may not take rest, snack and potty breaks...but that doesn't mean the 
rest of us can't  :-)  He goes into Safari Mode when he sees the river.  See 
you in the a.m.

  Linda, Dora Ann, Brent & partner, Gena &Bill, Mark possibly and myself plan 
to kayak from Nursery to Victoria tomorrow, about 12 miles.  We plan to meet at 
9 a.m. Sunday at the boat launch by the Rose Garden.  We will try to combine 
boats onto my pickup and trailer and leave most of the vehicles at the Rose 
Garden.  We can leave one vehicle at the loop (Hwy 77 bridge) in case someone 
may want to stop at 9 miles.


  Bring Gatorade, water, power bars and a sandwich or two.  Don't forget 
sunscreen, hats and life jackets.   I will be wearing my life jacket and 
recommend that you wear yours.


  We never take rest or potty breaks, but we will stop at gravel bars to look 
for fossils, opal (semiprecious stone) and petrified wood.   So if you need to 
stop just say "I want to look for fossils".  Keep your eyes open for skulls and 
bones on the gravel bars.   I have found extinct bison skulls on this stretch 
of river.  


  Anyone else who wants to go can just meet us at 9:00 am at the boat launch or 
about 9:30 a.m. at the Nursery bridge.  Just go to Nursery, turn left, then 
right after crossing the river bridge.


  Dave and Juan, we hope you can make it.


  Looking forward to a pleasant trip.
