An 8 mile paddle along Barren River which should take about 5 hours on the water. This is an easy paddle, great for paddlers of all skill levels.

Starting at Boatlanding Park and ending at H.P. Thomas Landing (Lonnie White Ramp) which is on Belle Rive Circle, off Barren River Rd. Our meet-up location will be Boatlanding Park (Off of Boatlanding Rd) where there is a paved parking area. HP Thomas Landing has ample gravel parking and an easy take-out. **We'll stop for picnic lunch along the river.

    Paddling without a purpose...pure pleasure! What a great day we had and thrown into the mix was the repaving of the strip of road right in front of us during our shuttles. No matter...we had a great day on the water! Water fights...blue algae water up my nose at close range...oh well...probably not the first time! Thanks, Matt, for organizing and leading the group. Great commaraderie on and off the water...Joe, we thought about you, buddy, and ate Mexican in your honor! You get to choose next time! Fun re-connecting and also meeting new paddling folks! And, oh, did I mention, the weather was PERFECT, too!

      My truckload was yelling "Hi" to everyone, someone tried to get out while car was in motion and I thought I heard the word "flashers" from the roadcrew?!?!? Not sure what was going on in my backseat. Can't take this bunch anywhere.

    Nice weather to be out paddling. I was hoping to see the blue holes again but the water was too muddy. Maybe next time. It was a challenged paddling against the current. I am glad to meet some new paddlers and also the old.

      It will be delightful just to get on the water again after being off...though 8 miles will only be a teaser after doing 111 miles in 7 days on the St. Croix and Mississippi Rivers...I may have to just paddle on down to John Baker's if he would come get me! :)
