  How does this sound?

We should probably make some definite plans, even if they are tentative. I made reservations for Twin Bridges campground arriving Monday April 29. It is about a 6 hour drive to Mammoth Springs Arkansas from Evansville.

How about if I met you at the Spring River put in at noon on Monday April 29? I assume you would prefer to run the 7.5 mile stretch down to Many Islands Campground rather than the whole 15 miles? We could then go back to Twin Bridges after and decide what to do on Tuesday.

For those who might be interested in the Spring River, it is a spring-fed stream arising at Mammoth Springs just inside the Arkansas border and not too far from Twin Bridges. It has quite a few ledge drops of 1 to 3 or more feet and one nice S-turn rapid but all Class I-II. Some folks might prefer to run this in a Royalex boat (although I have run it in a composite and will likely do so again). The whole run is 15 miles but there are intermediate take outs allowing for runs of 5 - 7.5 miles.
