Paddler Parking Lot

This is what it's all about. Just like the real parking lot, this is the place to shoot the breeze and talk trash. Just keep it clean!

Andy-
If you need equipment rental in the future, we have Iceman funds still available. LMK, and sorry I haven't been out there helping; a bad back changes things! You guys have done a really nice job with everything, the trail to the bottom of Millrace is very much appreciated. :cheers:

Hey everybody! Isn't having a parking lot awesome!!!!!!! I want to ask a favor: Please don't exit out of lot through Mr. Mabry's parking lot. It's tracking mud through his clean asphalt. Pull in if it's open, but don't leave out ( use that wonderful key ) I would like to eventually clean that area for him as a "thank you" gesture :D: While I have your attention, I have picked up a few pieces of trash out of our lot lately. I think its stuff falling out of vehicles in the rush of leaving. It's not bad, but keep an eye out. Hope to see ya on the river :dude:

Is there somewhere to buy a key other than through the mail? I'm in town for a couple of days and was hoping to hit the Saluda Wednesday (today) or Thursday in the evening.

I'm down here 4-5 times a year so it probably makes sense to buy a key. Do these run from a certain date each year like a Green key?

As showboat said, please do not exit through Mabry's lot. I know it's a pain in the butt to have to open the gate to leave every time you leave but this needs to be done. I rather us leave through the gate than have Mabry call me asking us to do this so that we do not track mud into his parking lot.

Garrick- keys run april to april. we have stopped selling keys for this year. there will be some rental keys available at get your gear on in the near future.

Just when I was beginning to think this parking lot plan was fool proof.

Keep it locked and no fools can get in. Hence fool proof. :)

I was accosted by a "home-dude" that wanted to "know" how to get a key :banghead: I won't say who did it ( just in case "I" do something ), but "let's keep that sucker at least tight enough that the bastard has to get out of his car, push the gate open, and then dispassionately( cool long word ) F with someone. I WILL extract a beer from the next infraction :cheers: :righton:
