Tick, tock, tick, tock

HurricaneTeen is waiting for his brother to send down the cables required to upload pictures from his camera. He is getting impatient. When he gets them, he will have lots of pictures for you.

I just recently came across your post about paddling Durbin Creek - do you know what the water conditions are like now? I'm thinking about planning a canoing trip... Also - how long of a paddle is it from Race Track?

sandpine - I have not been down there for a couple weeks, but I would say that water conditions there are still BAD for paddling. If you took that trip now, you will never want to take it again...You will be pulling over logs every couple hundred feet for the first 2-3 miles. Keep checking back here for updates on that, though, because when I discern that the water level is high enough to take a trip, I will definitely write about it on here.

Also, there are a couple paddling options from Racetrack Road. You can paddle down to where Durbin and Julington Creeks meet together, and take Julington upstream to Clark's Fish Camp. This trip is about 5 miles or so.

...or...

You could paddle all the way down to Mandarin Park just past the SR-13 bridge over Julington Creek. This trip is about 8 miles, and the last 3 tend to be tedious. I personally like the trip to Clark's better. If you have anymore questions, feel free to ask.

Thanks! I'll keep your page on my radar for updates and plan my trip accordingly. Looks like we'll be paddling at Guana this weekend instead!

sandpine - Guana is beautiful. Be sure to tour some of the little creeks that come into the main channel. Lots of birds and gators back there.
