Meet at 11:00 AM Saturday April 20,2013
Did this last year. Start at Coville Park Red Wing MN. I want to time this to see the spring Migration of Birds. Last Year we saw eagles, ducks geese, pelicans, swans and more.
Every one should have a wet suit or a dry suite, a spray skirt and water proof gloves. Water temps will be in the low 30 degree range. If you you go in the water with out a good suit. Your survival will depend on your skills and the skills of the people around you. At that water temperature you will not be able to walk or paddle after 15 minutes in the water. I will allow anyone who wants to paddle to come along without a suite if they have a change of Warm cloths in a dry bag.
I have done this trip several times without a mishap.
Bring a lunch & beverage
I will have Maps for everyone. Bring a gallon ziplock bag to keep it dry.
