Good to see that you and Gail are onboard for your first River Ruckus experience you won't be disappointed I can promise you. So I went ahead and got with Alan and told him to go ahead and design a 10th Annual River Ruckus T-shirt and that I WILL NOT order a boat load as I'm not storing them for years to come. If you want one then you need to let me know what sizes you need and how many of each. Not gonna bother with sponsors so if you want one you'll have to pay for it. You'll know the cost after I get the bill from Action Screen. Need to start thinking about what you wanna contribute to the traditional Sat night cookout at the rec Hall. Make it as simple as you want as more than likely we'll be on the water all day Sat and maximizing the use of Day Light Savings. Good to see a nice crowd planning on attending.

Here's who we got:

TimBob ,Heather & Tamara     Manatee    Thurs-Sun
Scott & Jana           Bream Beds            Thurs - Sun
Jerry & Debb (Kids)     Squirrels Nest      Thurs - Sun
Greg and Sue    Bluegill. Thurs- Sun. 2005 SN 206
Mike & Marsha (kids)              Thurs-Sun      Ribs
Art & Phyllis   Otter                          Thurs-Sun
Gary & MaryFran                      Thurs-Sun
Richard & Juli     Shellcracker     Thurs-Sun
Mike & Gail                                      Thurs-Sun
Alan & Dana                                    Sat

I can confirm water is nice and high , A flood watch came on the radio last weekend as I was traveling north through the area for Alachua and Columbia County.

I would like 3: 1 XXL, 1 XL, & 1 L

Are there several gas grills, or charcoal grills? I assume ovens in the cabins. Thinking about what to contribute food wise.

There are ovens in the cabins and 1 giant charcoal grill that we use for Saturday nights cookout.

I think just about every cabin had an outdoor grill propane...

Happy Ground Hog Day everybody and here we are....less than 2 months away from the River Ruckus. Since the Atlanta Snowmageddon 2019 never showed up I was able to pull out the boat and get her all waxed up and the oil changed. I always seem to get whistlebit at the the last minute trying to get it all down so I'm getting an early start on it this year and I highly recommend that you at least get yours waxed before you go. The St. Johns can really leave it's mark on your boat and it comes off so much easier if she's waxed up.
At the time of this post there is only 1 cabin left for the weekend so you better snag it before it goes. If not then there is the South Moon River Camp up the river/street for other accommodations and it is on the river. Thrilled to see the cabins fill up with CCFans so a great time is expected as always. Got off the phone with Les Todd this morning so he'll be joining us throughout the weekend.
As mentioned above the campground has a huge pull around grill that we'll us for grilling out whatever you bring if needed nd most of the cabins have ovens and stoves to make whatever you need. I'll provide the charcoal for the grill so just bring it.

A few things I wanna mention and yes I know it's early but gives you time to prepare for the new SJRR attendees:

     Barney is present on the water usually spotted a couple times during the weekend so be sure you have all safety gear and proper amount of life jackets.

     Anchor(s)- We will be boating on the river and rafting up on it and definitely in the Silver Glen Springs so you'll need one.

     Boat Bumpers- Please bring at least two if you have them, if you don't own any then buy 4. I prefer the L shaped fenders as they protect the top as well as the sides especially since our boats are different shapes and sizes.

      Red Solo Cups - Adult beverages are NOT permitted in the springs but most everyone does not follow that law. Don't make yourself an easy target for Barney to throw the cuffs on you.

Lunch on the river...NOT available well for the most part. Chances are pretty good that we'll be in The Glen on Saturday so be prepared to bring something for lunch cause their ain't nothing around for miles.

Breakfast- Not readily available so be prepared to just do your own thing in the cabin. This is especially important for those of us going out on Friday Morning.

Gas- It is available on the River but I'd Suggest you fill up before you get there. Several gas stations are in Astor but are not exactly boat trailer friendly. If you plan to do the Ocklawaha Run on Friday then make sure the boat is topped off before we trailer. There are stations along the way but we will need to get launched ASAP to beat the Lock Masters lunch hour. One Marina on the 25 mile journey has fuel so if you need it on the return trip back w can make a stop.

I still have Ruckus Coozies so if you need some more or want some then they'll be available to purchase.

Items needed for the Sat Night Cookout:

Plates, Napkins and silverware for the most part.

Bring a dish, then bring a serving utensil …...Please!

I'll get in touch with Terry Fiest at the boat show to let him know we're coming and to see if they'll give us the same deal on attending the Dora Show but I'm gonna need to know who's going so I can give him a # of attendees. More updates to come. Still a ways out but it'll be here before you know it.

I would have to reiterate 2 good anchors, 20'-50' on one 25' another should cover any spot in river. Should be decent north current with high water. Beware of ramp drop offs and ramps do change sometimes year to year.   Tarpon & 400+ manatees were in Blue Springs last week!

Fridays trip to Mt Dora (Actually Tavares) is a great one, and not to be missed if at all possible. Since it is a long haul, I was getting low on fuel on the return, turned out fine, but it was worrying me. Rosconole had the smarts to bring a 5 gallon Gas jug along that he added to his tank at the show, However he was running a Big Block that day too.

My fuel burn was about 25 gallons up and back if I recall correctly on the 454 BBC on the run its 25 miles by PrecisionStar GPS each way. No gas stations close by on that run and no telling if fuel dock person would be around if their was one that time of year. I never like buying gas on water anyway, to0 much chance of water in fuel.

Nothing interesting Petey, they’re just rebuilding it one side at a time and it is a high traffic ramp. Water should be at normal height. I was on the upper river (South) yesterday and height was perfect. Little bit of current but we had a fair amount of rain this week.

Gary, he won’t make it in time. If he were to start shoveling snow tonight he wouldn’t be able to dig himself out by mid March. Then he’d have to figure out how to load his boat in the ice, change impeller, replace battery in lesbomobile, etc.....

Was on the river yesterday,   water is down about 4 feet from the extreme high water marks.   It is about right now. I didnt go to the astor bridge so cant comment on the ramp there.   

Did get yelled at by the greenies in kayaks.   Said i was going too fast in now wake idle zone. Well 600 rpms is as low as it goes and it makes a wake and not granny gearing it.

I bet if we get one of those DNA checks on Gary it will show he comes from a long line of White Folk. Possibly Nordic Viking people with Blonde hair Blue eyes. No tint in the skin at all. The coast guard saw the sun flashing off of those white legs and thought a boater was in distress.

So we are thinking a side dish like either broccoli salad or a bean salad, and some chicken wings to throw on the grill.

Barney was out checking live wells on the river yesterday , gave friend of mine all kinds of hec actually measuring every fish 2x looking for something to give him a ticket for so make sure your fire extinguishers are up to date and enough safety gear,.
