It's about time to meet our OU friends hehe. I am pretty sure that we are going
on Saturday because it is only predicting AM Showers so when we are actually canoeing,
it would not be raining. Anyways here are several directions to get there from Stillwater
or Tulsa. Remember that we are going to go to WAR EAGLE FLOATS and not Peyton's place
or Falcon's Floats. I just gave you those directions because they are close to each
other. Here are the websites.....
War Eagles (This is where we are going)
Peyton's Place (not where we are going but they have good directions on the website)
MAPQUEST (online mapping-Stillwater to Tahlequah)
Directions from Falcon's Float (not where we are going)
From Tulsa Take Hwy 412 East to the Cherokee Turnpike (Cherokee Turnpike starts
5 miles past Chouteau). Take the first exit off of the Cherokee Turnpike. Signs say
to Tahlequah, NSU, Lake Tenkiller. After exiting, turn Right at the stop sign, you
will be on Hwy. 82 South. Follow 82 South to Tahlequah. At the first stop light turn
left. The signs will say Hwy 62 East, Hwy 51 East, Hwy 10 North. Follow this East
2 miles to Hwy 10 North. Turn left on Hwy 10 North. Follow it 1.5 miles to Falcon
Floats. We will be on your right.
From Oklahoma City Take I-40 East to 69 North (This is the Muskogee Exit which
is a couple of miles past Lake Eufaula). Take 69 North to the outskirts of Muskogee.
Just as you enter Muskogee take Peak Blvd. or Hwy 165 East to the right. Sign will
say to Tahlequah. 165 East will split. Left goes to Tahlequah, Right is the Muskogee
Turnpike. Stay on 165 to the left, for approximately 3 miles. Take the Tahlequah,
Ft. Gibson Exit. This is Hwy 62 East. Follow 62 East to Tahlequah. At the 4th Stop
light turn Right. There will be a Food 4 Less and Reasor's on this corner. You will
still be on Hwy 62 East. Follow this 2 miles to the 3rd stop light. Turn Right. There
will be a Phoenix Inn motel and Shorty's Pizza Place on this corner. You will still
be on Hwy 62 East. Follow this 2 miles to Hwy 10 North. Turn left on Hwy 10 and follow
it 1.5 miles to Falcon Floats. We will be on your right.
I guess that is it. Can't wait to go. Good Luck everyone and make sure you have a
ride(if not then give me a call at 332-1211). I'll email you again to make sure that
we are going weatherwise. Oh and it's about 150 miles away for us from Stillwater
so it's going to take about 2.1 hrs.
It's time for the exciting canoe trip. YEAH!!!!!! We are leaving on Saturday,
April 27, 2002 from Stillwater @ around 8:30 - 9:00 AM so that we can arrive at our
destination around 11:00 AM. [OU and their group will be leaving at their respective times and will meet us there.] We are going to War Eagle Floats....sound good? We will
get there and have some sandwiches or whatever....some spaghetti/fettucini. After
we [are done] eat[ing], around 1:00 PM, we will be picked up by the uh....the guides and stuff. They'll
take us upstream to our starting point. There, we'll be receiving our canoes for a
twelve mile trip which will last app. four to five hours.
I have been asked if people can bring friends....it'll probably be more fun with more
people but if anyone objects, then speak up.
Oh as for camping, I need to know who wants to camp b/c if enough people are willing
to, then VASA will pay for its members.
There is a Plan B which will go into affect if the weather is bad. Cathy has suggested
that we let OU decide what to do, i.e. hanging out in the city, vandalizing stuff,
stealing, robberies....ya know....stuff ou does normally...j/k, betty! okay okay....this
is just the first update. We'll have more coming soon.....check your email!
