Continue until you arrive at the big parking lot on the left. Look for a dark blue Honda with a canoe rack on top. Text or call Dunagan on his cell at 404-316-8894 if you have any problem with directions. After a 5- to 10-minute orientation in the parking lot, we’ll go down to the dam. if you’re running late, you can catch up with us there. This is going to be a spectacular and enjoyable outing!!
