Keep close eye on wx forecast when camping by a river or creek. Think Yellowstone.
100 year floods are now common. Need to change their outdated risk assessment maps. Have fun


The first camping trip my wife and I took was back in the mid 1990's where we drove down an old farm road along a small local river. Pitched our little tent on a nice sandbar had supper and the wife hit the bed. Absolutely beautiful day not too hot and no sign of rain. I was sitting in a lawn chair on the sandbar fishing and when I reached down to get some more bait the bait box was floating. Woke up wife and packed up and headed home with the sandbar sinking into the river. Got home and checked the weather and a thunderstorm miles upstream dumped a bunch of rain. Went out the next morning and you could tell the sandbar had been covered by at least several inches of water. Good thing I stayed up to fish or we probably would have woke up in a tent with water running through it. Jim.
