I thought about it and I've been doing this trip since 2003. Still one of my favorite trips ever. I just love it. It's currently ranked #9 on my TOP TRIP list. Foote Brothers drives you up river and you unpack the Canoes and kayaks and it's about 7-8 miles down river. This year 15 of us made the trip: Me, Urvi, Chris, Alison, Scott, Julie, Ryan, Amie, Matt, Eva, Steve, Deb, Tinamarie, Andy and C-A. We had a perfect day for it - 80 and sunny!

Afterwards we had Pizza and Beer at Choate Bridge Pub and Urvi and I rode back to Cambridge... It was Urvi's Miles in a Day PR!
