Day 1: The group and guides convene at the Village of Muscoda Campground where we talk over the schedule for the next two days, adjust gear as needed, and share some snacks around the campfire.
Day 2: After breakfast we pack everything into our vehicles and head for the riverside. While one guide organizes a vehicle shuttle, the other will assist in loading all the necessary gear into the guide paddled canoe or straped to the deck of your SUP. While vehicles are being shuffled to the take out location the remaining guide will go over the SUP equipment and paddle techniques. Once all is set, we will launch and enjoy our paddle down the picturesque Lower Wisconsin River. Enjoy the flowing water and warm sun as you paddle, splash, and take in the sights and sounds of the river. We will take lunch on the banks of the river. Back on the water, we paddle until finding the perfect campsite on the sandy islands and banks that line the river.
Day 3: After enjoying a hearty breakfast, we break camp and jump back onto the SUP's for our last river miles. After a couple hours, we meet back up with the pre-shuttled vehicles. After unloading and sorting the gear, we will depart back to the Village of Muscoda Campground where the remaining vehicles are waiting and showers are available.
