    Friday at 9am sounds good but could be pushed out to 10am if necessary. For what it's worth, it'd be nice if everyone heading in had a buddy boat for safety's sake.

    Thanks for the recon Cruiser. ...

    The old hot water bottle between the legs is one of the best ways I know, besides warmer quilts, to keep warm in cold weather. Takes the edge off of warming an icy hammock.
