Narrative: We are meeting at 9:30 at Harrisburg Park, 198 N 1st St, Harrisburg, OR 97446, GPS is 44.27302 -123.17401 to start shuttle. Take out will be Peoria Park, 29900 Peoria Rd Shedd, OR 97377, GPS is 44.45402 -123.21009.  
Paddle is about 19.5 miles long and fairly flat water. A few spots of moving water. I don’t recall seeing strainers in the water, but there could be. Going to be a hot day, so we will need plenty of water. For clothes, no cotton. One long lunch break and a couple of shorter breaks. Spots to take dips in the water to help cool off.
Done this paddle 3 times now, and have always enjoyed it.
