The gauges are all still reading at or slightly below ground level. Talked with someone who went out 2 weeks ago in their buggy on the north end, and said it was so dry it was dusty :o . We need it to keep raining like it has been for another couple of weeks and we should be good to go.

We took the buggy out last weekend after a week of rain, and it was too wet. Prolly could have made it to camp but if it rained over night it could've been bad getting out.

Had a friend get to G's camp from 41 and could idle over swimming hole.

I think after this week you should be good to take a boat to camp.

:rebel: ALLOUT who is your buddy is it MIKE N my son told me they were down there a couple days ago and that they thought it rained a couple inches while they were there. DUECE I believe we are probably good to go now our rain gauge in the res, eden 14 shows that its 6 inches above minimal operation limits, but we could use more rain or it will just dry up again. :rebel: WILL BE WATCHING

we put in on 41 and went all the way to the swimming hole, there was no rub on plane getting in or out of the canal. I started to rain some more as we left yesterday so I dare say there should be plenty of water come next weekend even for the CM crowd lol

C'mon, Ish. That's not a challenge, is it? I'll put my CMB up against your boat. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Was not specifically in the Res, but was in 3A South over the weekend. Went as far north as the tower (swimming hole) and there was plenty of water. Did not bump ideling in and out of the canal.

Got one yesterday that said if you're just riding it's fine, but if you're hauling any weight, it'll be rough. Sounds pretty skinny, but I like it like that.

But it is coming up so hopefully it wont be long before we can get back at it. :rebel:
