    Thanks, I was planning on some of those. I'll put more faith into the "drought resistant" spots marked on the map. Great map, I like how they make that distinction.

    Yes I've been checking that. Went from something crazy like 2500 down to 200cfs. So I hope for little rain leading up to the trip to keep it dropping.
