2016: Year In Review

30 Dec

2016 was a little slower year for us than usual. DW started a new business in the last quarter of 2015 and that took up a lot of free time this year. Even though our float count and mileage was just a little below average, only 5 rivers were new to the blog this year. That is not enough! Yesterday DW and I pored over our Missouri Paddling Guide and targeted some new areas for us to explore in 2017. So expect lots of new content next year! I am also going to change up the format a little bit. For floats that are repeats to the blog I will be doing a short description of the day and a couple photos. Enough to keep the blog active with content, but not a full trip description as I do with new stretches of river.

Here’s a look back at 2016.
