Trip Reports

Aug 7 Manistee, Sharon Rd to M-66

 | Published on 8/7/2016
   New, old, & infrequent members of the club joined together today to paddle the Sharon to M-66 section of the big Manistee River. Lindy & Doug, Anne & Jack T, Linda F, Marlene, Mark S, Terry M, Bob F, Jackie & Tracie all made the trip.
   Once again a smooth shuttle was run by Marv & we are all grateful for his continued help to his fellow club members.
   Everyone launched making it under the bridge with no issues where it is being worked on & improvements added.
   Other than some levering of a downed tree off the lunch stop steps, no major things of note on this relaxing float. A few ducks, a few turtles, a few spots scouted for lunch, a few paddle strokes, a few friends helping load up & done!
