Sorry for the delay in getting this together. I just called TG Canoes and told them we'll have approximately six people calling to make boat reservations for this Saturday. Tell them you're with me for the 9:30 trip. Be sure you're definitely going, because you'll need to pay a deposit ($20 per boat) when you call and we're already past the refund period for cancellations. They're closed on Tuesdays, so call today! :) (or Wednesday. whatever.)
I'm thinking we can just do as we planned last time, meet here in town at 8:15. (April, still OK to meet at your house? Edward's not going, so that location should be convenient for everyone.) It shouldn't take more than an hour to get there.
At this point, the weather is looking GREAT! Low 80s and sunny. I recommend dressing in layers, preferably synthetics that will keep you warm even if they get wet. The paddling on this stretch of the river isn't too strenuous; you won't be as warm as if you were, say, biking or running at that temperature, and you might be wet. Your feet and lower legs, at the very least, will be in the water at some point. Wear shoes that will stay on your feet during the portages. Bring water and a snack. I'll bring my big dry bag so we can take along a jacket for everyone in case you get wet and cold.
You're all outdoorsy folks; I don't need to tell you what to do. :) Let me know if you have any questions.
