This a six hour trip in the lower Delta at the height of the spring bloom. This is a true backwoods adventure. We stop midway through at a landing with restrooms. We will meet at Meaher State Park on the US 98 Causeway at 9 am. The boat ramp is all the way at the end of the road you drive in on. There is a beige brick building on the way in. That's the bathroom. Good idea to use it before we depart. Here’s my advice for how to prepare and what to expect: Regardless of the forecast, I always recommend bringing a rain suit with pants, rather than just a jacket. I love the $25 Frog Toggs suits available at Walmart and Bass Pro Shops. They help keep you warm as a shell blocking the wind if you find yourself cold. Then bring sun block, a hat, and whatever snacks, sandwiches, and drinks you want. (beer and wine are fine too.) If it is forecast to be chilly in the morning, I will have enough clothing to keep myself warm and encourage you to bring the same. Things feel much colder on the water in an open boat moving at 30 miles an hour. I'll have plenty of water on the boat, and a cooler with ice where you can put stuff. A small soft cooler is ok, but we want to avoid a bunch of big coolers on the deck. Just more stuff to trip over. For camera bugs, definitely bring your camera. If you have long lenses, those will come in handy for eagles and alligators. Wide angle for the flowers. A good zoom will cover all the bases. Even your phone will do a great job. Much of what we see will be practically falling into the boat. We have the ability to charge phones on the boat, but you need to bring your cord. I definitely recommend polarized sunglasses for everyone. The polarized lenses will allow you to see fish and other animals I point out underwater. Even a cheap drugstore pair of polarized lenses will do the trick. They cut the sun’s glare off the water. I always wear glasses while we are running for eye protection as well. A cicada in the eye at 30 miles an hour is definitely something to protect yourself from.
