FIMB, on the length of the trip.
1. it depends on where you live....for me its basically a day's drive (6 hours)..could paddle some that day but permits and darkness, etc.
2. the actual paddle distance is not that far by touring standards, we just may have people new to paddle
camping and not used to 10 mile days paddling and we of course won't paddle off and
leave anybody. I really think we can easily paddle around in 4 easy days but for a lot
of folks (me included) that is weather dependent.
3. as an enticement, if you watched the MiddleProngWeekend vid I plan on having 3 of
those baking set ups
and willing of course to trade muffins for whatever.
