We'd go 33.6 miles in a single day. New personal record. We got to lunch, realized we could do it, and paddled hard to the very end. It wasn't as exhausting as it could have been, but I chalk that up to river current help.
We'd see a couple of power boats today, but still were the only kayakers. The river would get super wide at the end, as we'd pass some very tall hills. Eventually things really widen out, and you are at the Mississippi.
Day 1: 15.5
Day 2: 18.6
Day 3: 24.2
Day 4: 33.6
I wouldn't expect to do that kind of thing again, but the current really pushed us and enabled us to finish a day early. If we didn't have incoming rain, we might've been able to finish in 3 longer days instead of 4. We did have a strong spring current resulting from a major snow melt, which probably would not happen again in the future.
I really enjoyed this trip. Tons of nature, not many other people out this early in the season. It was fantastic.
