We'll meet at Ayers Landing Canoe Rental in Wedron, IL for a 12 mile float and paddle through the most beautiful section of the whole Fox River, between Sheridan and Wedron. As above, the fall scenary will be fantastic. It should be a great day out to canoe or kayak and see the Fall colors, sandstone cliffs and more. Bring a Camera!

We'll each arrive by 9:40 to checkin, pay CASH ONLY for our rentals, watch safety video & sign waiver, board their transport at 10 AM and get hauled upriver to the Sheridan drop off point (private). It's HIGHLY recommended you watch the safety video on their website prior to October 14 so as not to delay the whole group.

We will then Float/paddle downriver about 12 miles stopping halfway at a private picnic tables and outhouse area (COST IS $1 EACH) near the Rt 52 Bridge for snacks/lunch (BRING YOUR OWN).

YOU MUST RESERVE YOUR OWN KAYAK OR CANOE ASAP AT Ayers Landing Canoe Rental, at Ayers Landing private park, with beach front and boat launch (,[masked]). Canoes are $ 50 each. Single only Kayaks are $ 40 each. If you bring your own, prepare for $ 25 haul fee. PAY CASH ONLY WHEN YOU SHOW UP THAT DAY.

RSVP to this meetup below. When you RSVP, let the group know if you want to share a canoe or car ride.

What to Bring:
- CAMARA (waterproofed?)
- WATER SHOES, if available

I will send a weather and status update no later than the Friday Nite prior.
