Unless you really need a co-pilot I have 2 people from MCP who want to ride share. Now it is matter of how load boats on my camper-trailer.
Thank you for the good places to stop along the way recommendations. I would have pestered you for details at the Baraboo pool rolling event but we missed you. No worries there are always February’s MCP potluck or Canoecopia. As far as Illinois my work often takes me there so:
1) Starved Rock is a favorite hangout for my friend/teacher from ISU and fellow ACA kayak instructor, who happens to also teach rock climbing there.
2) Springfield does have a lot of Lincoln history in the area, where I have worked on telephone lines.
3) Cahokia Mounds near Collinsville another town I have worked in.
4) Hannibal, MO is on my list of must see again, I was there in ’75 and Bob of the MCP is big into caving. So I’ll have find out if his schedule fits into my carpool.
Did you know that Madison is the home of the author who wrote “The Rag Picker” a book about union formation in the US. It has a unique story about Mother Jones. Last time I talked to him was a teacher at MATC but that was before the teacher’s union tiff with the Governor. Before MATC he was instrumental in forming the teachers union at the UW.
