Poker Run 2010

In Kayak Trips on May 17, 2010 at 2:47 am

Let me tell you that I had a WONDERFUL time once again this year.  The “Marion County Aquaholics” put on a GREAT Poker Run once again.  The river was running very high which made for an easy no blockage river.  I had no rescues this year, and ran into no rude or stupid people.  Wellll, except the two on jet skis that choked us all with thier 2 stroke fumes.  I was very impressed with how organized and how well it was run.  They even had help from the FWC (Florida Fish & Wildlife Comm.) shutteling people from the take out to the put in.  And as in the past, they helped everyone out of the boats and quickly loaded the boats on trailers to the parking lot.

The bad news is even though I was camping at Silver River State Park for 5 days, and had 3 cameras with me, I took NO pictures.  I was having way to much fun.  It was great seeing old friends and making new ones.  And 2 new camping trips came out of this trip.  We will be joining Dave & Phyllis up on the Suwannee in Sept. and Keith & Anita over at Hillsborough River at the end of July.

All I can say is I can’t wait till next year!!!!
