The new place does have tandems.  They had two.  But one I would highly recommend you DO NOT rent.  Ask the Dallas folks about that one.  Maybe they have a new one!  Or maybe they are down to one.

 

Pinkys has tandems and the rent during the daytime.  There is the other place, but you'll have to check the night paddle thread on that as I never dealt with them.  But think someone mentioned their info in there.

 

I saw it when it was pulled out of the water. It was only a bowling pin hole.

Oh man, hope I'm in town!!   Can't remember if we already cached that area. If so, we'll head out with everyone and detour, cleaning up another area.  (Making the assumption that my BFF will be in town)

For those of us that would like to keep Sunday in church, maybe we just need to come up with our own meeting time on the water on a Saturday. 

 

 

You can always host your own event or CITO.  On a Saturday or any other day.  People should feel free to hold events or CITOs to come do these whenever they want.  I typically hold them on Sundays because I have the least amount of interruption with Syd's softball games and other activities.  She may have practice, but I can miss that.

 

A lot of cachers seem to want the S CLAPS on the S end (near Clear Lake Park) - in the old series and new - probably because it has had fewer events / mashups.  I know some were scared away by the chilly 78 degrees on the MLK day CITO.  Somoene should do a Saturday CITO at CL Park.   There just was one, but I promise we did not get everything. 

 

That's kind of what I was hinting at.  However, I don't plan to host a CLAPS event that far from home.  We like to be able to back out if the weather conditions are not good and if you are hosting, it's harder to do so.  We are still pretty much rookies when it comes to kayaks, so we like to pick our ideal conditions.  We definitely appreciate those that have hosted the events that we've gone to, but if we are going to organize something ourselves, it will probably be more of a mash-up so that we are closer to the day to watch what the weather is going to be like. 

 

We still haven't made it to Horsepen Bayou, and have been waiting for a group for safety reasons, but I'm not sure that I want to go during alligator mating season.

1)  We like to be able to back out if the weather conditions are not good and if you are hosting, it's harder to do so

 

2)  We still haven't made it to Horsepen Bayou, and have been waiting for a group for safety reasons, but I'm not sure that I want to go during alligator mating season. 

 

 

1)  Naah.  People will come.  I've never been to one after the first that didn't have veterans.  So many people have done it now you're bound to have someone who has done it show up.  Just post an announcement.  They know what to do.  TW is a perfect example of overcoming events where the COs don't show up with the event during Icepocalypse 2014.  ;)    Heck - when I ripped my calf muscle I couldn't go on my own paddle event!  Y'all even went on that event!

 

2)  As for the gators -- no worries.  Unless you look like one.  Otherwise, they'll be busy doing other things.

Lol. Although I'm not sure just how to take that....   Hey, I needed my event fix!

I haven't done a lot of caches in "Alief" - so you can count me in for a CITO out there!  O0

 

And, if you're in the mood to do Horsepen I don't mind doing "marathon arms" for you if you pay for a tandem kayak sometime, (just let me know what day you're looking into). That's my favorite part of the CLAPS series & I've never gone turtle in my life.

Paddled some of the N CLAPS with some non-cachers on Sunday.  It was a truly perfect day to paddle.  We saw 9 gators.  How many more saw us?  So just a primer for Mrs. Buddy Buddy for Horspen Bayou....  which has the highest density of 'em.

We were hiding a series Friday in the perfect place for gators (not BBSP) and never saw a one. Sparky did however, get stung by two very pissed off bees and I got electrocuted by a fence. :orelse:

it was one helluva day. LOL I wish someone would have been taking video... running from the bees was especially fun. :-\ Then I had to go back for our wagon full of caches... luckily I moved in quickly and stealthily and grabbed our gear without getting stung. LOL And I guess I'm glad the fence got me before I decided to place a cache there... imagine the nasty notes I would have gotten on that one. :2funny:

This one involved darkness, bee stings, almost stepping on a rattlesnake, and two packs of coyotes....one of which didn't even run when we walked up on them (something is wrong when a coyote isn't afraid of you). http://coord.info/GLBK9T78

 

Oh yeah, and it was our honeymoon. Lol

She's earning the name Sparky, that's for sure.   :2funny:

 

Edit: Wait a minute.  I got that wrong.  I guess you should be Sparky!
