We didn’t travel very far today. We had to stop in Elk River to pick up some supplies we ordered online. Took advantage of some Taco John’s! Yum.
Elk River looked like a nice town with a neat downtown area. Sadly we walked past everything and got the boats ready to launch. 4 day paddlers were there at the landing and Lisa gave us some of the best brownies I’ve ever had and Stacy gave us a beer! It was very refreshing!
We paddled a couple of miles to Goodin Island and found a great spot to camp for the night.
I’ll be in Minneapolis within the next day or so and I’m hoping to find a place to safely store my boat for a couple of days while I check out the city. I keep striking out with the VFW for some reason. I figured veterans would be down for helping each other. So far, I’ve gotten zero response from any of them. 😞
Well, it wasn’t an exciting day by any means but that’s a good thing sometimes. Strange, I just heard massive amounts of gunfire across the river…
