I'll be up that way from 10/12-10/16 with an Arkansas Canoe Club group. The original plan was to be at Pultite most of the time and meet up with Pnetters as they arrived. Maybe that will still happen, but here's my (and some others') contingency plan. We will float camp the Eleven Point from Greer to Riverton Saturday night/Sunday (12th and 13th). Richard's Canoe has confirmed we'll be able to launch. I've never floated that stream, but the float camp we plan to stay at is only accessible by water, so they'd have to want us out of there bad for there to be a problem. Assuming Pultite is still locked down we'll go from Riverton to Boiling Springs Campground on the Big Piney. I'll stay there until I have to go home on 10/16. Where I paddle is up to me, so I may be able to join some of you on the North Fork one day. It's a bit of a haul, but only around an hour I think, which is doable. I'll definitely do the Big Piney at least one day, and if anyone wants to join me (us; may be others from my group) or even camp there I'd be honored. I believe most of the others plan to camp at Twin Bridges later in the week; Wednesday or Thursday as I recall. Of course if this nightmare ends in time I'll be base camping at Pultite as originally planned, but I just wanted to let everyone know what else was going on. It's a shame we can't count on our leaders to lead, but I refuse to let that prevent me from enjoying fall in the Ozarks. Take that, gubmint!
