We will paddle upsteam from BJ's Marina into Peach Creek.  Depending on circumstances, we will turn around at some point and paddle back.  This should be an easy paddle with a rest and/or lunch stop. I am anticipating 8 - 10 miles of paddling.  Be prepared, as always, for rain, insects, and possible immersion.  Have rain gear handy in your boat. Have a set of warm dry clothes in your boat. There could be a few pulls over shallow spots or around downed trees.

BJ's Marina is at 27907 Calvin Rd, Huffman, TX 77336.  They used to charge a parking fee of $3/car.  I will check in advane, in caseit is now different.  I will also check about restrooms, port-a-potties or similar being present.

I have increased group to 10, as we will have three trained trip leaders with us.
