Arrive SJV 5:00 - 5:30 PM for a 5:45 PM departure on Friday. Come fed and ready to go.

On Saturday morning we will depart at 9:30am for canoeing and kayaking. We will be using Guadalupe Canoe Livery on the Guadalupe River above Canyon Lake .  The Livery is on Hwy 281 just north of the river crossing in Spring Branch.  According to both Yahoo and Google Maps, the fastest driving directions from Round Rock is to go  35 South to 290 West to 281 South.  Then the Livery is just before you cross the Guadalupe.  Their web-site is here:
