Launched from the campsite in Aitkin MN at 0840. Paddled all day, not getting out of my boat for 30 miles. I actually ate lunch while drifting to make time. Need to catch up on schedule in order to reach Minneapolis on June 8 in order to get through the St. Anthony Lock before it closes forever that evening.
It was a great day with excellent river current. We ended up paddling 37.8 miles to Half Moon Canoe Camp. Weather says that it will freezetonight,so I ate dinner quickly then slipped into my sleeping bag for a warm night’s sleep. My Goose Down bag inside the warm tent will keep me comfortable.
