Paddle on the Milw. River

We'll meet at 1:00 PM and start paddling when everyone is ready.  We are going towards Lake Michigan, so we'll see the downtown area, pass by the swing bridge and the Milorganite plant and under the Hoan Bridge.  If the lake is calm we can go north past the Summerfest grounds, the art museum and McKinley Park.

We'll paddle back up to Lakefront Brewery unless the current is too strong.  In that case we can do some car swap and drive back to the cars.

    Thanks Bruce for figuring out our mileage. It was nice paddling with you all. I always see something "different" every time I go on the river.......

    Doing some rough measurements using the scale on the Google map, I figure we paddled something over 7.5 miles today. Throw in the curves where I had to use straight lines probably adds another mile. Congrats to us.

    Lots to see and a swell crew to tour with. What was that pirate barge about? We were paddling for five hours, so the side channels added a lot to the trip. Super time.

    Paddling along the river, checking out side trips (with interesting finds), nosing out to the breakwater - a good time for all. And, for those of us who could, a good dinner and conversation at the Twisted Fisherman afterward.

    I've got my kayak loaded, and I'm on my way. Hope I can make it from Oconomowoc to Milwaukee in an hour. See ya

    If it doesn't clear up, I will change my response to not coming. It is too hard for me to battle rain with a new kayak on top of my car. I am not comfortable loading and unloading. Sorry, if this was closer to home, I might attempt.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
