Floated from Robinson Road Saturday, May 25, 2013. Parked by railing on north side of river, AWAY
from "Posted Private Property" on both sides. Came back to find TWO TIRES PUNCTURED ON SIDEWALL!
Unfixable - had to replace both tires. Have since been informed the the sod farmer wants NO ONE
accessing from here. A shame, because it was an extremely nice float. Recommendation: DO NOT PUT IN
OR TAKE OUT FROM THIS POINT!
