Well it looks like we are going to get a 24 hour release from the Tuxedo Dam, so I will be leading a river trip on the Upper Green this Saturday, May 28, 2011 for APE’s that would like to join us. This trip is an excellent intro into creeking (Class II-III+)! Check out all the BETA for this run on American Whitwater @: http://americanwhitewater.org/content/River/detail/id/1079/
We will plan on meeting at the put-in (Tuxedo Dam) at 10:00 A.M. to set-up shuttle down to the Gallimore Private Lot. Does anybody have a Green Key yet? If not, I will swing by G.R.A. to purchase one for the season on the way to the put-in.
After we complete the run, there is a ¾ mile hike with your boat uphill to get to the take-out parking lot. A smaller group of us with Class V experience will head on down the Green Narrows to the Fishtop take-out.
For those wanting to car pool from the Tri-Cities, let’s plan on meeting in Johnson City at 8:00 A.M. at the parking lot beside of Arby’s off of the I-26 Exit 24 for Elizabethton (Map link – http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=I-26+E&daddr=S+Roan+St&hl=en&geocode=FRwgKgIdJn0X-w;Faj-KQIdi5IX-w&gl=us&mra=dme&mrsp=0&sz=17&sll=36.31318,-82.353022&sspn=0.0074,0.013036&ie=UTF8&ll=36.306601,-82.341242&spn=0.007401,0.013036&z=17).
Please contact me by e-mail before Friday at 4:00 P.M. or by phone Friday evening if you plan to join this trip, so I know how many to expect.
I hope to see you on the Green!
