***NEW PADDLE ANNOUNCEMENT*** LITTLE BOILING CREEK & BOILING CREEK
Date: Saturday, February 4, 2006
Time: 10:15 AM
Place: Yellow River parking lot, Eglin AFB, FL
Contact: Gary Worob 850-259-9337
Directions: Take I-10 to exit 31 in Florida, which is Hwy 87 south, the last Milton exit going east, and travel south for several miles until you cross the Yellow River bridge (can't miss it) immediately on left is parking lot.
Comments: The trip will start at the road crossing over Little Boiling Creek. We will shuttle vehicles to the take-out at the mouth of Boiling Creek, and not continue down the Yellow River to the Hwy 87 bridge. This may be an adventure into the unknown for the first 1/4-1/2 mile, as we will likely encounter some blockages requiring some cutting, drag-overs or possible portages. It should not be very far, as we checked out the northern end of Little Boiling Creek recently and it is clear partway upstream heading towards the culvert.
The scenery will be extraordinary, as we will paddle down Little Boiling Creek and turn up Boiling Creek as far as it will allow. We will then return downstream, under the wooden bridge (normal put-in point) and continue to the take-out at the mouth (normal lunch spot).
Bring lunch, fluids, definately a recreation pass for Eglin, change of clothes, and saw if possible and sense of adventure.
