    What area of the river are you on? I know it is way up there with how narrow it is. Amazing what it turns into down here. Not a place I want to ride on much less camp. It is beautiful up there.

    That looks like Alton Pool. Iowa Island maybe or very close to there? I'm there all the time in the summer. Got a new wetsuit for Christmas so I'm ready to start riding end of Feb beginning of March as long as there is no ice.

    Well shoot me a PM and we can exchange numbers. You'll have to let me know next time you're out. I'm at the Alton Pool almost every weekend that I'm in town in the summer. A buddy owns Palisades Yacht Club (awesome food) and we hang out there a lot too. When we go out on the water, we always go to Iowa island and are there all day.
