    Putting in at Rush for a slow slow float and fish, lots of stops, camping on gravel bars exploring nearby so slow going, relaxing. I need to find a place to get off the river about 2 and a half days down from Rush to hike out to a pick up point as I don’t get to float all the way to the white due to time constraints. I am not sure I can find my way back to this forum…I’m hoping to find information on the Buffalo River Wilderness area in Arkansas from Rush to White…could someone make suggestions for me and reply to my email address? vali@dam.net
