Back to J&R Home
Once again, It's Easter so we packed up and went Toobing in New Braunfels.  All the usual suspects were present... The Rob, Theresa, Johnathan and Amy from Lafayette, Shaun and Kelly, Nicole David and Mary, Natalie, Chad and Tiff, Patrick, Kayli, Chase, Cody, John, Travis, Krystle and Chris, and David Matocha and Kati.  For some reason - the Army Corps of Engineers choose this weekend to let water out from the dam at flood rates so most of the sites on the river closed down.  K&L (where we stay) closed as well but let us come and stay since we're regulars... We had the place pretty much to ourselves.  We couldn't toob the Guadalupe so we went into town an floated the Comel instead.  That first day and half of the next was beautiful - but we got hit with some extreme weather (hail lightning and heavy heavy heavy) rain the last night.  We made it through the night however - Patrick had it the worst.  His rain guard ripped off and he literally slept in the rain all night... He toughed it out though.   

This trip marks the end of an era.  It was the first trip that Rob and Theresa didn't come down in a Suburban.  They finally sold "the beast".  It's also the last trip for our Suburban.  We're just shy of 300,000 miles and it's time to start a new era.  Our next river trip will be in our new Suburban.
K&L Ranch - Closed for the weekend (well - closed for most folks anyway)
