We got parking permits form grant county to leave cars at wyalusing. We hired a shuttle from WI river trips to take us, our gear, and boats to the start at sauk city (about an hour and 45 minute drive). Because of the drive and shuttle time, we wouldn't hit the water until after lunch.
We found a high sandbar and would setup camp, and cook dinner. Then the storm would roll in. We had a strong line blast through, only in about 20 minutes time. Thank goodness we had everything up by then, so we hunkered down and it passed soon enough.
