Hey all! Newbie here. I have been canoeing since I was a kid. However, I am a novice when it comes to proper gear. I currently Dubuque Iowa and have been doing bigger and bigger canoe trips. Now that I have been doing multiple-day canoeing/camping trips on the Mississipi, gear suddenly makes a big difference!
My first question is canoe paddle types. I see the different types of paddles out there for rivers and lakes. However as the Mississippi is a bit of both, I was wondering what folks recommendations would be for paddle best suited for a several day trip on the Mississippi.
I’m certain I will have many more questions in the near future. Thanks for any tips!
