I think the '*As long as I don't break my shit in a mud hole' clause is fair.

We are up to 14 with a bunch of other people looking likely. Still quite a ways off. I am going to run a prerun as soon as the snow breaks.

Canoeing Trip Details

Mike Anderson has used Penrods Canoe before so this is who we are going to use for our trip. Trip lengths can be 2.5, 4, or 5.5 hours long. Prices are $24, $28, and $38 respectively for canoes, $20, $24, and $34 for single kayaks, and $28, $32, and $42 for double kayaks.

I have young kids so I am gong to be taking the 2.5 hour trip however anyone that wants to take the longer trips is welcome to. They say that we do not need reservations for canoeing but I still want to make them just to be on the safe side.

If you plan on going, make sure to comment or message me!
