    I'm actually in Greenbrier-8 miles north of Conway. Heber Springs is about 30 miles from Greenbrier. I Flyfish in the Little Red River in Heber Springs. And yes Greers Ferry lake is great in the summer. I RV "camp" and boat there regularly.

    I'm in the Dardanelle/Russellville area. Soon to be moving out into the woods in Wildcat Hollow (about 7 miles west of Dardanelle on Hwy 22). We're going to be building an off-the-grid home.

    Hey guys I lived in AR for 39 years (Cabot, Monticello, Hazen, etc.). I have lived in Louisiana for 13 years but plan to move back after I retire. Can I still be in your club or has my 13 year hiatus disqualified me?

    ya gotta come back with coolers full of gulf shrimp, swamprat...that's all I'm sayin' :D

    man, I remember going down to the LA shrimp boats growing up in the 70's - we'd make the trip with two dads in the front of the pickup and a few of us rug-rats in the back under the campershell. We'd drive all night and get there in the morning...the shrimp boats would fill up our coolers for $5 each - throw some ice on top...and drive back all day.

    Shrimp parties for the next week at everyone's yard that sent a cooler
    - rotating it so you cooked once, but feasted for a week. Good times. :)

    With so many members in and around the NW AR. area, I'm suprised that there doesn't seem to be much interest in a local get together. I, for one, would appreciate the opportunity to participate with and learn from others. Maybe that will be my next b-day wish.

    Just waiting

    Just waiting to hear of any one that pitches out an area to meet up . I live south of I40 but most of my canoeing has been north of I40 . Areas around the Mulberry River look like they would be a great place to have a gather. Some of the area around the Big piney would be great also . My son and I have been talking about going out camping and I have thought about getting the gps coordinates and taking off and letting him see if he can find the place . Especially since he hates to ride in my samurai.
