It’s a very informal event and there is always room for more. If you are staying at Katherines Landing, reserve your room with “Riley group” for 25% off. There will be allot of kids staying there. We have group bbq’s/grills planned for both nights.

I just cancelled my Katherines room 6th thru 9th along with my slip on the lake. MIL Alzheimer's is preventing my wife from leaving her family at this time. My wife already has instructions to drug me up and roll me over the bow in Topock if i ever get that bad.
Have a good run to the Dam 2020!

Wow! Awesome pictures. Never seen Mojave so glassy. Looks early!
Do they still have days boats are barred from up past Willow Beach to the Dam?

Only been up from WB once, the bridge was just starting. Saw a boat beached during high flow way up away from current level. We had a blast. That water is cold!

Sunday and Monday it a “rural zone” no boats. Also, Labor Day through Memorial Day no boats.
Memorial Day to Labor Day you can go up Tuesday through Saturday.

Thanks! It must've been a Saturday we put in there. It is truly the best 14 mile stretch I've been through and Iove to run it again, while I can. Ha!
Been working towards it. : )
Boats close. Forecast looks great, under 110! That's always plus!

Darn near hardboiled the 5.2 in the little 2000 Durango on the way uphill out.
Always an adventure on the Colorado.

My moms mom suffered with it real bad. We buried her last year. It was the strangest thing I’ve ever dealt with. Of course I was sad to bury the woman I shared so many great memories with but another part of me was happy she did t have to live that way anymore. What was strange was I didn’t feel they way I thought I would. I loved that woman so much, but I had lost her many year before. The last 10 years or maybe more she did t know me and couldn’t talk. I hadn’t seen her in a while because it was awkward and I guess I’m a selfish person. It runs in the family and that bothers me a lot too. We are gonna miss you guys on the run.

ITINERARY

We start at 0900 just outside the buoy line at Katherines Landing.
from there we will stopoutside of cottonwood where we will wait until 1000 for those launching there, also for some of the boats with a slower cruising speed to catch up. Next stop will be the no wake zone at Willow Beach before we drive the last 10 miles to the Dam. These are the only 2 planned stops.

People will often pull off to fake photos of the group as they pass. Last year there was some confusion and half the group would pull off every time someone stopped.

Oftentimes we will all meet up at a beach in the way back, I prefer the sandy beach just south of the Dam, but the group may be too large for that beach

I stop frequently. Sometimes to take pictures sometimes just to cool off. People tend to stop together and float. Years I had shirts, every time I stopped someone was trying to get my attention for shirts. If my brothers wife is with us this year Imagine we’ll be stopping more and probably have the Bimini up. Not my ideal situation but it is what it is.

Anyone that’s never been to the hot springs just shy of the dam on the right should do it. Boat parking is limited.

I’m in for a stop, I’m not exactly sure where the stop is so I be following...
You’ll see some restrooms on the right along the shore prior to the dam. You can pull in there and hike up the trail to the springs. There’s a good size rock in the water but it’s marked off with a buoy
