By the way I'd like to ride SSW Fri AM but the tide is high around 5:00 and not low until 11:30. Pump in the parking lot and wade to the bar to rig??

We'll be there @ SSW early fri.,

I think the tide will be low and going lower,

But you are right, the bar to the right is where you rig and launch from during high tide

Don't forget your drysuit, it'll be nippy , air in the 50's/ maybe even high 40's/ but at least we should get wind before it dies at 10am and warms up to the 70's

Bob,

I was thinking the same thing about the tide. Low tide isn't until fairly late, by DP standards.

Can't sleep, wind keeps waking me up.
I thought it was Major walking into the walls (went blind), but it's tree limbs and stuff landing on the roof.
I walked outside. It gusted to 40 I would guess, right in the front yard.
