These great maps have dissappeared off the 'net.

Personally, I think these are the most detailed a map that a paddler needs. The USCG charts are just too much, numbering in the dozens.

Scott, if this is using too much server space of your's, my bad. Put 'em where you want 'em!

Throwing this PDF file out there for anyone who wants... I grabbed these off the Corps website last year and edited. These maps were the latest ones available from them as of then. I removed all the maps not on the race route, then put in checkpoint info, and because my crew and I did some quick non-checkpoint cold Mt. Dew stops the last day Tongue, I circled some ramps toward the end for quick spotting.

I laminated it to have in the boat, but never used it except at CPs when consulting with the crew. I think the best thing on the boat is a short laminated list of all CPs and ramps, with river miles noted. There are a few posted on the forum here and there. I saw a couple people last year with a similar list and it was taped to the kayak deck. Great to have one for ground crew too.

Hopefully this Google Drive link to the PDF works, if not let me know:
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BxOk4xA5TLf2RzVvVmtoRnM3ams/edit

If you think of anything else to throw in (or see a mistake) let me know.

Waiting for July is going to drive me nuts... Cheesy

Are those dark lines every quarter mile or so wing dikes?

Yes.  And the Corps shows the entire wing dike structure.  Even that which is now completely underground and part of a cornfield.  When the dike was installed it had water flowing on both sides.  But the purpose of these dikes is to collect sediment on both sides and, in effect, squeeze the river into a deeper, faster channel. 

Only the tips of the older dikes stick into the river.  The dikes "shrink" in length every year, except when added onto or new ones installed. 

It is not necessary to note the location of the dikes on maps.  You will see them just fine and they are easily avoided in daylight.  By nightfall you'll have a familiarity with the rhythm of dike placement and you'll know where the broad areas of safe travel are located.

Scott,

What do you expect the river to be like in two weeks?  High or normal?  Will the wing dikes be exposed or underwater?  Do you think we'll have sandbars?

I was at the I-70 bridge in Columbia on Sunday and I could see most of the wing dikes.

According to the forecast, its going down slowly.
