Day 17/July 23. Little Falls to Royalton Sportsman Club, MN. 🚣🏻♂️
Took it very easy today. Got on the river at 11 am but then had the portage from hell at Blanchard Dam. Thankfully, I met Willie and Kaleb who are doing source-to-sea, too, and we celebrated on the other side. That was the only good thing about that portage. By 4 pm I had my canoe stored at the Royalton Sportsman Club and Rotary president Carol J picked me up and brought me back up to Brainerd where I stayed in an apartment in the Dennis Drummond Wine Company owned by another Rotary member. It was amazing. I didn’t want to go to sleep. Its like a night in the museum only in a wine bar. Great food, great drinks, beautiful place.
