CLAPS FAQs and STATUS

When I passed over Armand Bayou last week on Bay Area Blvd, It looked like there was enough clear water to paddle upstream of the bridge a ways.  Of course, the waterway could have been completely choked just around the corner.

If you could make a "fried water hyacinth on a stick" recipe worth anything you could make a killing at the Rodeo with an endless, free supply of it.

ROFL!

N CLAPS is open and open in a big way.  Highly recommend you come paddle this beautiful section before the evil water hyacinth takes over again.  1 - 18 (all but Big Island Slough) have been maintained and are in great shape, most with new logs, etc.

Someone needs to toss a couple of manatees in there.......

That would be very, very cool.  And God knows, they'd have enough to eat.  But for them hyacinth is probably like lima beans and only 1 out of 1000 likes it.

 

But can you imagine paddling with manatees?  That would rock.

Hey, lima beans are great!

For those of us who were busy shuttling a five-year-old to a rescheduled soccer game, I hope to paddle the same section this month before it all becomes overgrown again. Appreciate the maintenence!

Ok, so Catspa and scooterino are out paddling some of the CLAPS right now.  Got a call. In Horspen, there are big swatches of living, green hyacinth up in trees 8 - 15' high from the floods.  Many branches low are broken from current and other debris pushing on them. Some whole trees down.  I'm sure North and Horspen need a revamp from all that rain.  They said the lake fared much better, which makes sense.

Sorry they had a bunch of DNFs but all was well before the floods.  Sounds like a maintenance run soon.

Thank goodness, that's The Bicycler's.  ;)   Ping him.  He's always up for company on a run.  And never a DNF with the CO.  :)

Status:  ALL South CLAPS caches are in working order.  At today's event, we were able to get to all of them.  Not saying it was easy.  But they were all gettable.

So for those of you who don't have notifications on this far away -- N CLAPS has been completely redone.  The main one is at this link:

01 N CLAPS 2016: Clear Lake Area Paddle Series

All CLAPS are good to go right now.  If you are missing any S CLAPS caches and want to get them before they get the 2016 redo this is your fair warning to go get them.  Soon.
