PADDLING Whitewater Paddling -- for miles on 03/19/2023 @ 12:00am -- This trip can probably go a couple different ways. Like Saturday’s trips, and depending on the group, there’s likely to be a limit on numbers. It’s still winter, so immersion gear is a must, and a reliable roll is another very good idea.
