For the next few weeks my wife and I will be sailing/drifting down the Arkansas River in our Jim Michalak designed Caprice towing a Welsford Sherpa. Right now we are anchored in Maynard Bayou just south of Muskogee. We'd love to meet with, sail with, or bend elbows with any forumites that might be along the way. Our take out point will be Pine Bluff Arkansas. We're not on a schedule but we'll update our progress, with pictures as service allows.

Did ya look around Muskogee? Watch out for those barges. That I40 bridge was knocked down by one a few years ago, They got a submarine parked down there you might want to look at.

We,re just getting ready to leave Maynard Bayou, Cathy's taking the wiener dog for a final trip ashore. We spent the day holed up here yesterday as the storms rolled through. The cloud cover meant no internet. We (and by we I mean Cathy) caught a nice catfish that went straight from the water to the frying pan - delicious! Our service has been too slow and spotty to upload any pics yet but we'll keep trying. Tonight maybe Spaniard creek or Boudinot Creek whichever looks more appealing.

Phillip, you're welcome to come for a visit or a sail if you can get down to the river when we are passing through. At the rate we're travelling it will be a while.

Today we went through our first lock and managed to get through without mucking it up. Right now we're anchored in the Illinois River where we'll spend the next day or two trying our hand at trout fishing.
Still no luck up loading pics, connection is so slow it just times out, maybe manana.

Still in Oklahoma, stayed over a couple of days on the Illinois river, I refused to leave until I had landed a trout - success yesterday, trout dinner last night. We stopped at Tahlonteeskee to see the old (rebuilt) courthouse this morning and the turned south again. By afternoon the wind was really blowing. The weather radio said 20-25 gusting to 40 and I believe it. Tonight we are holed up in a snug little cove in Tamaha. On Our trip asore we found an old jail house dating to the 1880s (the real deal).

The cold hasn't been a problem it stays warm enough in the cabin that we sleep comfortably. Today was absolutely beautiful: cluodless blue skies with just enough nip in the air to make the sun feel luxurious on our backs as we ghosted along in the nearly still air. We saw a couple of bald eagles this morning. We are in Ozark Arkansas right now anchored in a little basin in Aux Arc park. We planned to go up to the city dock a little ways up a small creek but the advertised bridge clearance of eight feet was closer to six feet and with the mast lowered we lacked about six inches to get under. Even if we had cleared the bridge there is a pipe stretched across with only about three or four feet of clearance. Last night we caught a few catfish on Mulberry river where we anchored and Cathy is filleting them as I write - what a great wife!

We are having a great trip. We spent most of the day roaming Ozark before heading down river so we didn't make it very far. We are anchored in Smith Creek and it might be the prettiest anchorage yet. We are right below an 80 - 100 foot cliff with a small spring trickeling down the rocks. Just before turning in to the creek we spotted a pair of eagles in a dead tree overlooking the river. We took a couple of pics and will post them if they turn out ok.

Thanks, Bobby. We've got lots more pics but svc is too slow here. The only svc we have gotten for the last few days is intermittant as we travel down river, never anything at our anchorages. I think Cathy has been able to update the blog some during the day. Right now we are in the vicinity of Morrilton and should be in Little Rock tomorrow evening. What little bit of wind we've had has been on the nose so it's been all motor since lake Dardanelle. When crossing Lake Dardanelle we came upon an elderly couple (80 and 84) in an ancient fishing boat waving a white rag on the end of a fishing pole. Their motor had died and they needed a tow in. When we got to the boat ramp at the state park we found out they were they were the park hosts. They invited us to tie up to the dock for the night and use the park facilities - we obliged. The funny thing is; our motor had been running rough that morning so our start was delayed because i had to pull the carb and clean it out before leaving. If we hadn't gotten the late start we wouldn't have been in the right place at the right time and the couple may have drifted for quite a while as there was very little boat traffic in the area and it was getting close to sundown.

Funny thatyou should ask about Little Rock. Down by the end of the river park there is a small barge set along the seawall for boats to tie up to. This is what we used when we went to Bosco's. We decided to spend the night there rather than anchor out. I was still on the computer downloading pics when I saw the lights from a barge approaching I stood up in the companion way to watch how we rode the wake- no problems there but when I looked toward shore there was a guy standing at the rail on top of the seawall looking down at us. We exchanged pleasantries but I was getting a hincky feeling which got worse when he asked if my wife and I were traveling down the river. Cathy had gone to sleep some time earlier and the lights were off so the only way he could have known she was there is if he had been watching us for quite a while. I went back to the computer and he walked away from the rail. I was relieved to see him go. The relief didn't last long as he reappeared at the rail farther down and just stood there watching me from the shadows after about 45 mins to an hour I shut off the computer, the only light in the boat, and watched to see what he would do. Sure enough after about 20 mins he started down the stairwell. The only thing at the bottom of the stairwell was us. I had already decided to move but as soon as he started down the stairs I jumped onto the dock/barge threw off the lines and shoved off I didn't even worry about starting the motor until we were drifting out. As we motored off the guy reappeared at the rail and watched us leave. We spent the night anchored across the channel.
Little Rock has done amzing work on their parks with miles of hike and bike trails running up and down both sides of the river Two of the old railway drawbridges have been converfed to pedestrian use and a pedestrian/bike only bridge has been constructed across the dam and lock about four miles upstream as well as several smaller bridges crossing the Maumelle and a couple of creeks. The river front park downtown has a very cool sculpture garden several pavillions with educational and historic display and a very elaborate play ground for kids of all ages with a network of tunnels and child level rock and wall climbing. The down side is there is very little patrol of the area. In our walks we came across a lot of drug use and a group of homeless had taken up residence in one of the pavillions. We even walked up on a couple getting busy on a picnic table with no attempt to be discreet during the middle of the day. What we never saw in the park was a cop. We did get a visit from both the fire dept and the sherrifs dept while at anchor. Both were friendly visits to see if everything was alright, precipitated in part, I believe, by the fact that I had removed the engine cover from the 5 horse honda to make it look a little less appealing to would be thieves.
Tonight we are tied up to the dock at the Island Harbor Marina in Pine Bluff, our final destination. We've got a ton of pics but they will probably have to wait til we get back to Seabrook

This was seeming like the perfect trip. I had enjoyed Folboting on the Illinois and Osage rivers in NW Arkansas as a kid. I was always dreaming of taking off from Catoosa in something more substantial. I will have to remember Little Rock, though.

We are back home and have gotten back to work on Plover. And now after 5 calls to Tmobile and over 2 hours spent repeating my story, pin # account # etc. to 18 different people I have internet service again. The following photo seems appropriate, this may be how T-mobile customer reps get to work. http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8069/8180965679_54e53187f9_b.jpg (http://www.flickr.com/photos/plumbtex/8180965679/)

I don't mean to scare anyone off going to Little Rock despite my encounters I was really impressed with the city and the things they are doing with their parks. here is a sunrise on the river in L.R.

Glad you had a good trip. I agree, lots to see and do in Little Rock. Lot of history there.
