This big beautiful laid back paddle trip is always a blast!!! We are starting further down river than the big canoe rental shops and hopefully shoving off a bit earlier than the masses. This means we should have a jump on other paddlers. Once we get on the water, we'll be paddling, sandbar camping, and having an awesome time as we make our way almost 40 miles downriver! Our Journey ends in the backwaters of the great Mississippi River :) NOW Outdoors will be providing just about everything but your personal items. The cost is only $249 per person which is a darn good rate :) Bring a family member and save $50! Basic canoe rentals without anything else go for more than that from other WI river outfitters! *There is no glass allowed on the river. BYOB- just make sure it's in plastic or cans. You can even bring coolers to keep drinks cold! Difficulty: This is a fantastic trip for beginners and avid paddlers alike. This might go without saying but since we will be on the water for several hours each day, you should be comfortable both on and in the water. You should be able to provide for yourself sufficient clothing and personal gear as per the gear list. AS ALWAYS >>> Upon registration, you will receive a recommended gear list and other pertinent details. You don’t need much! Included: • All meals (Dinner Friday to Sunday Lunch) • Coffee • Canoes • Paddles • Life Vests • Dry Bags or Barrels for your gear if needed • Purified Water • Toiletry Kit • Group Kitchen • Group Tarp • Comprehensive group med kit • Misc. group gear (fire pan, hand sanitizer, etc.) Not Included: • Personal items (tent, sleeping bag, sleep pad, and clothing) • Snacks • WI State Park Sticker (We end at Wyalusing State Park and you may want your car there) Registration: $249 Due Wed.
