OK kids, Iíll start the thread.
The Fall Ozark Rendezvous is annually scheduled for the third Thursday in October on the Current River in the beautiful Missouri Ozarks. The group will camp at the Pulltite Campground in the Ozark National Scenic Riverways operated by the National Park Service.
That makes the official dates of this yearís Fall Rendezvous Thursday, October 16, 2014 thru Sunday, October 20, 2014.
Many people show up earlier than the official start date, and some stay after the official end date, and some paddle other Ozark rivers before, after, or during the official Rendezvous dates. As you can see this is a very formal, regimented canoe trip 😊
I plan to arrive at Pulltite some time on Sunday afternoon, October 12th.
FYI, the National Sierra Club is having a canoe trip on the Current River Oct. 12 - 16. The trip is for up to 16 people. According to the itinerary on their web page they will be camping at Pulltite Campground on Wed. night Oct 15th.
You can make reservations for your favorite campsite online at http://www.recreation.gov/ but it seems that they are not taking reservations for the Pulltite Campground for any dates after October 15th. After October 15th all Pulltite camp sites are first-come-first-served.

Gosh, I guess I didn't realize we hadn't started a thread? I'll work Sunday, dogs to the kennel Monday, and hopefully be there Tuesday? That's our plan. Margaret's "Good" with spending our 30th anniversary among our Rendezvous buddies as am I. Just spent some time on the Current yesterday, Akers to Pulltite. It will be good to get our old friends gathered back there in October!
Just a few more months!|

Summer just started and it is already flying by. But I'll be ready for the "cooler" fall weather. We'll be there!
Good summer ... sorta|

Sorta been having a good summer, (ie haven't had to turn on the air conditioner yet) but canoeing is a different question.
Just scheduled my vacation!|

Talk about an "ahhhhhhh" moment. As soon as my leave request was approved for the Rendezvous week, I felt my stress levels go down! It's been way, way too long! Hope to see you all there!

Can't wait to see you and David!

If I recall correctly that song was sung by John Sebastian as the theme for the TV show "Welcome Back Kotter."

The Great River Rumble this week. This year it is mostly on the Wisconsin and finishes on the Mississippi.

Paddled with them yesterday, actually. Spring Green to Lone Rock with about a mile of upstream paddling at the end. Its a fun group and they have lessons to teach re: organization of large trips.
I hope y'all have a great rendezvous |

I thoroughly enjoyed the 2014 Spring Rendezvous. Unfortunately I will not be able to attend the Fall Rendezvous this year. I hope y'all have a great time!

Well the Fall Rendezvous is only eight weeks away. Cool temps, fall colors, clear Ozark rivers, and good friends.
Where Has the Summer Gone?|

You could just drink beer from the bow seat and enjoy the scenery.

OK, but if Jack is going to be Bob's bow queen then he'll have to dress the part.

For over 30 years a group of Indiana-based paddlers have visited The Current the last weekend in October. The groups varies from 20-50 attendees with some coming one to two weeks early. This year we will be on the river 23-26. So watch for the Indiana license plates that week folks!

Is it going to be a small group this year? Not seeing much action on here.
