Yes Larry you are absolutely right, I should have checked the forum last night and i won't make that mistake again.  Also, I did aim to be there for 7:30 but it didn't work out, obviously.  Forgive me, I was more than a little pissed after driving 4 hours for nothing.

My spider senses tingled when someone posts 2 meet times or a 30 minute time span in their posts at some undisclosed place.

One has a few options:
Aim for the earlier meet time ... there's always a Tim Hortons close by.
Check the thread as it develops and especially in the evening while organizing your gear.
Contact the trip coordinator to confirm

I don't think the end of afternoon the day before is last minute by any means.. so meet time was confirmed to be 7:35am which is close to 7:30 as suggested by the trip co-ordinator.

Thanks for changing the meeting time at the last minute.  I love getting up at 5am so I can be on the road for 6am for the 2 hour drive from Petawawa to Ottawa to arive at 8am on the dot to an empty parking lot.  Also, thanks for waiting for me seeing how I confirmed I was coming.  You guys are the best.

I apologize Jeff. Everyone was there around 7:15, we waited until just about 8, so we must have just missed you.

the decision was made to get going so we could maximize our time on the river.

I'm hoping I can make it up to you somehow.

I suppose closer to 7:30 than to 8:00, takes some time to get there and release starts at 10:00. And... Passports! US$! See you at Fallowfield.

The gas station near Manotick doesn't like us leaving cars there for the day.
The switch was made to the Fallowfield Park and Ride last year which is no where near Kanata .. or the car-pooling spot we use when there is a trip up towards the Ottawa Valley

Fallowfield P&R is provides good access to the 416

Hi All.

Perhaps it makes more sense, for those who come from the East, to meet at the gas station near Manotick? Eagleson Park'n'ride is a bit of a detour... What time should we be planing to meet? 7:30? 8:00?

Oops... I misread. Fallowfield is just fine, just stay away from colliding double-decker buses and trains. So what time then?

It's a talent, what can I say.

And you're all safe... this time. I'm headed to Keystone, Colorado for a conference Sat-Wed. So I'll be thinking about paddling while I'm schmoozing with potential clients. ;)

Have fun, be safe and for Pete's sake bring back videos!

Oh, Beware if Luc is filming and you are doing a run though, just saying (he has a  real knack for capturing the most "interesting" descent lines on film...)
