Canoe Trip Prep Work
I spent yesterday evening with the boys pulling down the canoe and preparing for this weekend. Alex and I will be joining two other father/son pairs from my work as we head up to the North Platte on Friday. We plan to run the same stretch of river that Mike and I ran last fall: from Pick Bridge (just north of Saratoga WY) to Ft. Steele (rest stop off of I-80). It is about 33 river miles and will be the first time in our "new" canoe, the first time Alex and I have gone canoeing, and the first time for the other father/sons as well. It should be a lot of fun. Hopefully it is manageable, my worry being that when Mike and I went last year the flow was about 300 cfs, this weekend it should be around 2500 cfs!
