There isn’t much record of our first paddle – we have gotten more verbose over time. I do know it was July 2002 – one of our earliest paddles! It took 2.5-3hrs to go from Burnt Village to the Rock River. Since it was just the two of us, we must have shuttled our own car did a bike shuttle.

Water level was low.
