Hi John, Good to see that you are recovering enough to start kayaking again! Too bad the catfish didn't cooperate :).

Have you tried using a free account at photobucket or one of the other picture hosting sites? I think if you do that, you can upload your pictures there and then just link to them with the IMG tag, that might keep TKF from timing out while you are uploading them.

I have heard that dragging any kind of extra boat for equipment is a nightmare. How did it work out for ya'll?

I am planning to do a similar trip later this month and it sure would be nice to pull another kayak/canoe behind us with extra gear.

Also, what did you do with your trash? Burn it?

Fish Wisperer. We didn't drag the boat for the extra storage ability,it was just easier to collect wood using an empty boat,and that's what we did. The boat was then used as normal.

All trash that wasn't burnable was hauled back out to be disposed of correctly.

I am looking at doing a trip on the Brazos at the end of the month. I just got off the phone with Rochelles, They said some of the river is dry and they have had reports of people having to drag their boats. Did you run into this issue? If so, what was the longest you had to carry/drag your boat?

water was difinitly lower than last year so yes some dragging was required through some of the riffles with one strech that was maybe 200 yds but nothing really bad. bearing in mind my boats only weight in the mid thirties empty and we carried enough to stay on the river 4 nites.

Hope that helps, and that you get some rain as well.

I just did the trip with my kids Monday and Tuesday of this week. I would estimate we (I) dragged for 3 out of the 20 miles. I have never seen it this low in 20+ years, and I floated it after the fires went through the area. I sure hope we get some rain soon.
