Two days out: This won't be us

But it will probably rain, most recent National Weather Service forecast for Vermillion:

Saturday: Occasional rain, mainly after 1 p.m. High near 54. East winds between 10 and 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80 percent.

The cruise is still a green-light GO, so pack rain gear, extra hat, a spare towel, anything you might like to have for a less-than-ideal-conditions paddle.

Rick Johns said paddling the route in the rain, mild rain, often is very relaxing. As we used to say in the marines, "If it ain't raining, we ain't training."

But this is no training session or "mission," it's a cruise, so we apologize in advance if we all arrive and the conditions are hopeless.

Please come out if the May rain is not a buzzkill for you.

Bring rain gear, and call or e-mail Rick or me if you have questions.

See you Saturday!
