Come one, come all...paddling with alligators, hiking with armadillos, dining with the best camp cooks around.  Yep, Halloween on the Bayou reservations have been made.

Better check those dates.  As written, it will be nearly a year long outing.  I am betting on Oct 26-28 myself.

And, yes, I will be there.

I plan on being there for the duration of the event no matter how long it is!

I will be bringing extra paddling craft for those without.  It looks like now I may bring two canoes and two kayaks.  Hope to see both some new faces among those recent attendees at this year event.

Keep your fingers crossed that if I work again in the fall (big if right now), I can pull a Tuesday/Thursday class instead of this MWF schedule.
