Troop 134 canoed the Des Moines River on August 9th and 10th. They left 
Mayflower Park in Windom at 1:00 p.m. on
 August 9th for the 11 mile float to Kilen Woods State Park.  They arrived at 6:30 p.m.  and set up camp for the evening.  On Saturday morning, August 10th they left Kilen Woods at 8:00 a.m. for the 12 mile trip to Ashley City Park in Jackson.  They arrived at 1:00 a.m. and ate lunch at Burger King.  What a great experience we had, we hope to do something this again in the near future.  Thanks Mike and Arnie.
