Midwest Spring Fun Run

Post by jmscherrman »

ShadowWalker and I have been taking since last summer about meeting up and running some skinny water. Well, it's happening in 2015.

When: last weekend in may. Sat or Sun
Where: public boat ramp 4 miles west of Andalusia, IL on the Mississippi River

This area of the mighty Mississippi should prove to have some awesome shallow areas that will be a fun way to kill some time on a May weekend.

Any other Midwesterners down to meet up?

IN! My buddy is coming too.

Here is another picture of said area. Red Box is the boat ramp.
Looks to be pretty promising. The barge traffic is all along the state line, and not between the ramp and islands. Which is good, because I hate barges.

Ha! I will see what I can do. What about putting together a national Swamp Runner Day?
