* Park personnel have sent me coordinates to several good islands to camp. I've selected one 6.9 miles from the state park put-in: See scheduled route below:

Directions to the Put-in:  Just enter the Mountain Pine, AR address from the event heading in your personal navigation device.

Hazards: Still warm in the middle of the day. 86 degrees average high. 68 degrees average lows. Long paddles with planned breaks every 90-120 minutes.
