2018 Campout #1

Updated: Jun 2

With the weather.... better than it was and a fever to get back to camping, it was time to start the quest for the 18th camper award!

The first trip of the year, St Francois State Park which was chosen for its proximity to the Missouri Whitewater Association Kayak Races!

The kayak races were, once again, spectacular! Competition was strong and water was up from last year making it a bit more tricky to navigate the gates over last year! Mistakes were more common this year with a few kayakers tipping over or skipping gates that came up too quickly.

All in all, it was a great weekend and great start to the new camping season!


1 trip down, 4 more to go!

Span of 2 days; Approximately 238 miles; Approximately 17.35 gallons of gas used; Approximate average MPG 13.7 fighting fierce head winds on the return trip; Approximately $36.94 spent on gas.
