Details on the May 10th Missouri River trip

Note: maps removed to save load time

The map above shows the rendezvous point, Holmes Welding and Manufacturing, at the junction of Timber Road and Highways 19 & 50. We're aiming to meet there about 11 a.m.

This map shows the put-in point. It is a little tricky to find the right gravel road to this spot, that's why we're meeting at an easier spot to find, then shuttling. Remember, it's 454th Ave. that goes to our launch spot. As you can see, there's a nice dock there, as well as a decent parking area.

This one shows the take-out, but it's an overview. When we cross the river bridge, we'll have to continue into Nebraska about one mile to get to the road that loops back to the shore.

Here is one with more detail of the take-out point itself.

Here's an overview map. Remember, our start is at the left edge (454th Ave.) of this map. The ending is just past the 19 bridge in the lower right corner.

If you are planning to join this cruise, please e-mail Rick Johns or Jarett Bies, so we can organize our needs, shuttle-wise.



The extended forecast has highs in the 70s and sun. Let's hope that holds up. Remember, this is a longer cruise than the one on Earth Day weekend. It could be up to five hours long. BUT - there are spots aplenty to stop and rest, stretch legs, and just take in the beauty of the Missouri River, so don't rule it out because it sounds like too much work.

Hope to see you on the water (or at the meet-up, first!)
