We'll need em for circulation at gas stations along the way, drop one at Al's too because somebody snatched the old one. I'll cover the fuel and campin expenses if you can put together supper'n fixins. Have fishing rods for the entire family, probly aint gonna be easy gettin our hands on a boat this weekend though. I been lookin to buy a rooftop canoe that fits on top of the car.

Anyhow folks, the fellow with the story at beer, bait'n tackle haint been around but i got the straight scoop. Army Corps of Engineers been called down to Rough River patroling with helicopter and hover-crafts and after massive deployment haint found alot of gator tracks. What they're sayin at Ft.Knox is there probly aint alot of giant gators in Rough River Lake.

KYGal, since y'all got Grayson connections - see if ye can git local definitive perspective on the gator situation. And next time I'm headin down to Bowling Green I'll ask around at Cave City and Glasgow too.
And I will recruit the Kentucky Herp Society (I work with many of them) and see what they can do.

Okay, I've got the digital cam, boat and food covered...only problem is that I have to work this weekend (necessary evil). When I win the Powerball that problem will be solved!

Could be that the Army Corps of Engineers were too far off the ground to spot the gator tracks, we could get a better view from the boat...maybe if we're clever enough we could make some tracks to photograph if we can't find them! LOL!

We went down a couple of weeks ago and the water level is still really high, you can't even get close to our dock. Hopefully, it goes down soon.
