    FYI The Tickfaw River is just south of Hammond, Louisiana.

    Wow! Thanks Stretch!!! You coming?

    up date on the locale

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Okay, I got a correction on the location and the time. It starts at 12:00 noon Saturday. You can put in the water at the HWY 22 Bridge at the public landing, or maybe put in at Tin Lizzy’s on the other side (not sure will check). If you put in at the public ramp, the fork in the rivers will be to your right standing on the ramp.. or under the bridge…

    The Krewe of Wrecks Parade starts on the upper Tickfaw River, then turns at the fork just above the HWY 22 bridge, where Blood River meets the Tickfaw, and then goes up the Blood River… So your choice on where to be, is your own. A lot of rivers to cover… I hear the titties will be flying on the upper Tickfaw… so………

    How is the water out at Prop Stop? Will a low freeboard jetboat get swamped out there? I've never been out there so I didn't know. My boat isn't built yet but I'd like to see the festivities one year if I can catch a ride out there.

    Not too bad. It is in a no wake zone, but you know how idiots in big cruisers can be. It is closed this time of year anyway.

    And sorry for the confusion on the location, I thought I had edited it, but had not. All fixed now!

    OK We are about ready. I will be there Friday morning, and then that afternoon I will put in the Tickfaw and go ride. There is a local restaurant that we may “take” over …

    Saturday is the parade then a BIG party at the Blood river landing.

    There will be a river ride Sunday….


    Not much interest, I'll post some pics.
