How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The trip was made on June 1st, 2010 with a fair about of water in the river. My wife and I have a great time. If this is your first time be aware that it will take a fair amount of time to learn how to paddle the canoe. The canoe has a flat bottom and is easily turned by the current and we ended up going in circles and into trees sticking out into the river until we learned how to paddle together, but still it was a constant corrective action you have to make as you go down the river. We found the best place to pull over a relax was actuallytowards the end after you past the big rock in the river and on the left hand side. It was about 1/2 mile to the pickup point, but was stayed an hour there relaxing. So if you come for a good workout and enjoy the view and quitness of the river, then you will have fun.

Help others enjoy a great night out
