look out for all the fishermen that appear out of nowhere at night. they dont take it very well when they have to deal with you all in their lines

there were a ton of them around 4th of july for that full moon

other than that its def up there on cool kiting experiences

Okay I didn't realize the full moon was at 4am this morning ............. Definitely thought you guys meant TONIGHT as opposed to Aug 1st / Aug 2nd a.m.

Is anyone else still planning on giving it a shot tonight? I assume it will still be just as bright even though it will be a day or so into the wane...

Chris any insight?

Yeah I also thought everyone meant tonight, which is when I'm going. Got my waterproof headlamp, glowsticks and water resistant (I hope?) LED today. Heading out to Sherman in a few minutes.
