If you run out on Sunday you'll have to come to Missouri, but your choices will expand to include premium beers such as Busch, Milwaukees Best and PBR.

Directions including such phrases as “turn left between the two cypress trees next to the house with the ’56 Dodge pickup body, three dogs, seven cats, and a red headed 2 year old kid with a tee shirt and no diaper on in the front yard” are not uncommon.

Ok, Chromium and Shoe, is this one sounding a little "scary" familiar? Let's add the 3 sided shed with the washer and dryer.

 

The three dogs were coon hound pups. bugeyes.gif help.gif

In Arkansas, dogs come in two types designated by which side of the state you are on..... SE half (where the flatlanders live) the dogs are all retrievers as in duck dogs...... in the NW (pretty part... hillbilly country... "back home" for me) half, the dogs are all coon/deer dogs. This does not include the occasional (as my dad would call them) "S#!t Eater" dogs made popular by those damn yankees that can be found in some homes taking up space. For example, AJ and Zig... the two Yorkies that occupy my residence since my fiance' moved in. wink.gif

 

Sippy,

 

If you come to a place like that again and you see a bald headed kid playing the banjo, you and your group might want to head back the way you came from.... FAST!!! scared.gif

 

Oh.... and to explain - the washer and dryer were in the three-sided shed as a status symbol so the neighbors around would understand that the folks livin' in that place were "high society" hillbillies. If you put them inside the house, nobody would be able to see them. lol.gif

 

By the way, Chomium..... "you shore gotta purty mouth....." shifty.gif

 

(Sung to the tune of Tom Petty's "The Waiting is the Hardest Part")

Well, I think I’ll go and rent me a movie right now;

Go and get something I ain’t never seen.

And on the discount rack, I see Deliverance,

And I’m watchin’ it now and they’ve got to that scene

Where they meet the hillbillies and they’re big and they’re mean…

And who’s that crawlin’ ‘round on his knees?

It’s Ned Beatty! (Beatty!) Ned Bea-yay-yay!

Ned Beatty had the hardest part

‘Cause redneck love leaves emotional scars.

I guess he didn’t read the script too far;

Ned Beatty had the hardest part

 

Wow, Wayne.... You must be rich if you can afford to buy PBR!!!! laugh.gif

Here's a question for you White River Rats.

 

With all the recent rains and almost continual generation (except for at night), I was thinking it might be a safer to bring the 17' CC. I haven't seen the new launch above the State Park. It was still under construction when we stayed there 2 years ago. Do you guys feel it would accomodate this boat? It draws a little less than a foot. I'm figuring it would make a safer fishing platform than the driftboat and will allow us to anchor without shitting our pants. laugh.gif

 

If by any chance they do lower the water, we have an Arkie style boat available that comes with our cabin.

 

Any thoughts about operating the CC between the new launch and the dam?

Shoe,

If I were you, I'd post this over on John's forum. I'm sure Jimmy, John, and the others that live there (the forum and Mt Home... LOL) would give you a better answer. I haven't been up that far in a while myself.

 

Is the 17' a skiff? Personally, I'd think you'd be OK, but might want to super glue your shoes to the floor.... laugh.gif

I sent Jimmy an email this morning.

 

Here's a pic of the boat.

I know it might be overkill and limit us to fishing inbetween shoals during low water periods, but at 6-8 wheels it should be the cat's ass anchored. (If we find enough lead to hook it to the bottom...LOL) Down by Buffalo and White Hole we saw quite a few guys fishing in 20' bass rigs

Shoe the lakes are bottoming out and we don't have any significant rain forecast. My take would be that I would rather face high water in the driftboat than low water in the 17'. I'm not sure I understand your concern, I wish now that I had kept my drift boat when I moved back home.

Here's a link that might help, if you haven't already seen it.

I hear ya.

 

The drifter is great when floating from one access to another, but anchoring one in anything over 3 generators is very dangerous. It just swings too much. We were hoping to concentrate our efforts in the water above the State Park. If we were to float from the dam to the Park, we'd float for 10 minutes and motor back up for 45. dry.gif They just don't motor for shit in that current

 

I guess I'll keep an eye on the flows. We still have 1 1 /2 weeks
