    Don't let my limited May schedule dictate what weekend works best for the group. I could do memorial day weekend but being the so called first weekend of summer, the river will probably be very crowded.

    I'm good with the the 12th date I like it when its earlier in May. I know that will discourage some from joining us but hopefully someone will want to put together a later date for those who can't make it. I honestly wasn't sure if I was even going to do it this year I had been contemplating replacing this next year with the Hilton Head run for me and I may still.

    Hilton Head sounds like a great option. I would be open to either trip.

    Once we get into January I will hit you up on this and we will figure it out. I'm sure if we opt for Hilton Head @bronze_10 can take the lead this year on the locks run.

    That is funny I was thinking something very similar for me. Diversion canal > Pinopolis Lock > Cooper River > meet up at mouth of the Cooper with crew from Myrtle > Hilton Head > return the next day

    The great loop is the mother of all adventure trips! I had it in my head now for many years and I am about to just put the Nike logo into action and "Just do it!" ;-) So many trips rolling inside my head during winter that is hard to set priorities. So when all else fails, my one simple goal is to exceed the previous year number of trips and water mileage. 2018 dream list is long.... NC-Miami again and maybe in reverse?, in the hard category Key West to Cuba?, Da loop 1st leg NC-NYC, Bimini, Tennessee River 600 again, NC Outer Banks to VA, and at course all the local trips around NC & SC smaller trips while I take a break from the big trips. Hey, is a rough life, but somebody has to do the tough missions for America! ;-)

    Hi @JROD we have been wanting to run the TN River from Chattanooga to Knoxville. Have you done that section (“Tennessee River 600”)?
