Rancho to Two Bridges

Hi Guys,

Looking to run Rancho down to Two Bridges tomorrow with the fam for an early Father's Day float. Do you think I'll be okay in dory? We'll be below Yarmony so I'm not expecting too much action (by design). Has anyone run that section this week?

Thanks as always for the input!
Fin

It shouldn't be a problem if you know what you're doing. You'll have to take out before the second bridge at Two Bridges as the only way a dory would get under that bridge at these levels would be upside down. Last weekend the gate was open to provide access to the area above bridge, and it was possible to back a trailer down to the water. Definitely scout it out when you're running shuttle so you know what you are dealing with.

Thank you! That's exactly right. The folks at Rancho said the same thing about having to use the old takeout. I'll definitely scope it out. Thanks again for the input / sanity check - greatly appreciated.

How long would you estimate it would take to do this run without stopping?

At these levels, it should take about two hours.

Thanks again. I think we'll head up to Rancho for the start then.
