We had a blast scouting it last year, and now it is your chance to join us on the Black River in west-central Wisconsin for a 3 day/2 night kayak camping experience Aug 17 - 19. This tributary of the Mississippi River is 190 miles long (we are not paddling all of it!) and ranges from narrow fast moving channels to wide open spaces. Due to the channels and potential for deadfall (trees in the river) this is NOT a beginners kayak camping trip. Still plenty of time to acquire the skills!For more info or to register, please visit https://bit.ly/2YP242K.#gearupheadout #blackriver #kayakcamping #trysomethingnew
