Come join us on the Jordan River - it's the first day of school for northern Michigan kids, and you don't have to show up!

Our first stop will be brunch at NOON at Shirley’s Cafe in Mancelona, and afterwards we'll head to the Jordan to paddle from Grave's Crossing to Rogers Road.  Time on the water should be about 3 hours.  

Given the possibility of tight turns and downed trees, you will need to be able to maneuver your boat sideways across the stream using back ferries. If you are not comfortable making quick turns, it's best to practice these skills on an easier river before you head to the Jordan. If you have any questions about the trip, just give me a call.

Everyone should bring a boat, paddle, PFD, ropes to tie on the bow and stern, water bottle and a snack.  Bring a dry bag just in case.  Don't forget your sunhat and sunglasses with a retainer.  And have a change of clothes and shoes in the vehicle so you can be nice and dry on your way home.
