If one was taken, I'll have it. Be sure to look for my mail so you don't filter me out. I'm going to get a new mail addy as soon as Ricky can think of something good.

One of the problems with last year's trip was that the guy that took us on the field trips had a family illness and had a hard time committing to a date. It made it difficult to be as organized as I wanted and as far ahead of time as I wanted. The mini-monsoon on Saturday did not help the trip. I had a great time though. I think organized plant collecting is more fun than running up and down roads and stopping at random ditches. I still have my Juncus repens. It's not much of a "centerpiece" plant, but I like it. What became of some of the other species we collected?

Thanks for the pic, I thought I dumped all the CDs you burned into my photobook, I think I missed one... not that good a picture - I've never seen it tho...

My cats knocked over my tupperware tower while I was traveling so I basically lost everything I had growing emersed...

Why does everyone look like they are having fun and Luis looks very nervous?

Makes you wonder what might have been under the water when people were pulling up that stuff where the Juncus was.

I talked to Luis today and we are working out a possible joint venture Houston Plantfest with DFWAPC & the now forming Nature Aquarium Society of Houston. Looks like maybe mid-spring will be the time but we'll get that narrowed down. Barr might even show up, he loves Texas.

I'm definitely game for a Houston trip this spring. Hopefully family emergencies won't prevent my attendance this year.

BTW, thats a small gater. I need to find my pictures from Brazos Bend (SW of Houston a few miles). Great place for aquatic plants, just can't collect.

Isn't Brazos Bend where they took Claus at the AGA in 2002? I think Luis knows a biologist there. Maybe its was Jerry? I think that was the biologist who took us collecting down there last year at Plantfest Houston.

It could be worth checking out for the "biotype" type viewing and photography excursion. I bet it will be better than the bridge in Galveston.

Default Oooh, oooh, count me in!

Hey, count me in! Early May is OK, but the 18th - 23rd is totally booked for me so I hope you look to the early part of the month. Let me know if I can help with planning, too.
