  • April 04, 2020
  • Big Pine, near Pine Village, IN

"Muskrat's 43rd Annual April Fools

On Big Pine Creek Cruise"

will be held Saturday April 4th 2020.

Meeting time is 9:30 AM

at our traditional gathering location, 

in downtown Pine Village.  

Please, Don't go to the Putin !!!

Go to Pine Village !!! 

Sometimes we don't know where the Putin

will be until we meet in Pine Village.  

There are several possibilities,

with the selection based on water levels.

If you're interested in attending this Cruise, but have concerns about your abilities or equipment

(type of Boat?? spray skirts?? helmets?? float bags??),

please feel free to contact me.  Complete contact info

is available at the end of this Trip Announcement.

Also, please read the description of my Last Minute Update, down below the next picture.


   Each year I make a Scouting Run thru the Big Pine Valley

on the day before my April Fools Cruise.  I check the water level

(on the Chuck Weis Gauge in Rainsville) immediately upon arrival.

Then I visit all possible Put-ins and Takeouts, visit with the

Landowners at each location, dropping off a copy of this

Newsletter if no one is home.  When I'm ready to leave,

I check the water level again and note any changes.


    My plan for that day includes being home no later than 6PM,

so I can prepare my email "Last Minute Update" which I promise

to have available to my Expedition Team Members no later than 7PM. 

For everyone else, I will be sitting next to both phones all evening, beginning at 7PM.  Feel free to call me any time after 7PM

to see about the water level and the expected level of difficulty.

The Launch Site, however, 

will not be announced 

until we meet in Pine Village. 

  See You On The River,
