Jim and Mia McDermott and their dogs, Mazie and Schmidt helped me
to scout the section of the Little Pee Dee for Saturday's club float.
We put in the Little Pee Dee at it's source just below the dam at
Red Bluff Lake off Rt. 83 in Marlboro Co. , SC. at about 11:55 AM. We
had two portages on this trip. The first was very easy. For the other
I had to cut a path. Also had to step out in ankle deep water for a
step or two. An alternative would have been to get out on the log and
pull over. We avoided a third portage by taking a short cut that Jim
discovered. There were a few scoot overs. We also had to do some
cutting but we agreed that the section is scenic and interesting
enough to be worth it. By the way I lost my hat again. We took out at
the bridge at County Line Rd. at about 2:53 PM. Hope you will join us
for the trip on Sat.
