Hello - I'm interested in joining in on the Flambeau River trip this coming Saturday the 20th. I'm new to kayaking and don't yet have a kayak of my own. I was wondering if anyone out there might be able to loan me their kayak and a paddle for this trip? I appreciate any assistance anyone can offer. You can also contact me directly at the information below.
Any size boat you'd recommend?
