That sounds like a great idea. My vote is to start at 9am. And
refreshments and a tour of the field sounds great. I think it should be

I have gotten a commitment from Ian Workman to navigate us across the
fords. He has a great knowledge of the area. This could be a lot of
fun. And it could make some good money for the preservation efforts.
