The 26th is the day before the new moon. A strong ebb tide will push us downriver. High tide at Toledo is predicted to be about 12:15 in the morning. The high tide at the Elk City ramp should be about an hour later, so the plan is to leave the ramp at about 1:30. The 6 1/4 mile float down to the Cannon Quarry ramp should take less than three hours. After shuttling trailers and pulling boats and getting back to Toledo it will be time to meet at Cobblestone Pizza for an early dinner. Ask about borrowing a Toledo Community Boathouse rowboat or canoe for the float.
