Just managed a surgery re- sked: now it's too far out, but I can work on moving it in. I can't close or hold with my left middle or ring fingers (It was that way during rip-trip and boneclave), but can still cast.
Now I can work on a family camping trip down there 18 - 20 Oct or so. Jim W has pointed out a couple of campgrounds in Brewster. I will bring down at least 1 kayak; will put out a call for intel closer in. Any chance of a rip-trip that late?
