    Default Raft off

    Anyone going?
    We were thinking about putting in at Port Huron in the morning then going down.
    Unless anyone has another idea?
    Never launched in that area. Any suggestions? I am guessing that it will be pretty busy.
    Weather does not look all too good either.

    Thanks
    later

That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"

    Brandon, thats a long haul from port huron. There are ramps closer but if the weathers bad, it'll suck. Been there and done that. If it was going to be nice, I'd get you out there. There are areas in the flats that are great and NO speed limit! You going to any more events this year? I'm planning on foote pond and wamplers.

    Thanks for looking out for me, but we (dad and I) were going to take his 24 footer. lol
    The weather is not looking so good this morning, so we are pushing this trip off. It isn't just going to happen. We first started out doing the Cheeseburger in Caseville, but small craft advisory on Sunday and the weather, so we decited to do the Raft Off. Now this mornings forcast has pushed us to next weekend.

    Ya the weather is just not on our side this weekend. We do plan on doing more events. See you at Foote Pond, but probably not Wamplers. And Brower too if the stars all align.
    I'd like to go to Lake St. Clair with some of you guys that know the area. (Places to go, eat, launch, stay, ect.) Been down there, but only for a short stay/trip a couple years ago.
